Fodor's Review

Coquilles St. Jacques (scallops with mushrooms in a white wine–cream sauce), seafood pasta, and shrimp-and-scallop flambé are popular dishes at this 120-seat restaurant. Although seafood is the specialty, the baked Chicken Royale with mushrooms and the country-style barbecue pork are also excellent. The cocktail lounge is a great place to relax with a drink and meet some locals. Service is friendly and laid-back—though this sometimes translates into slow. Desserts are made on-site.
