“This is a very popular family spot on the island. It was featured on the show Man vs. Food. There is something for everyone here. There are classic items and ones that are completely original and unique. Make sure you try the wings! There are 16 sauces for you to choose from both Original Breaded, or Naked. The Chicken or the Egg has become know locally and Nationally for these wings. Also, the entire menu is available 24 hours a day (in season).”

“Lobster corndogs -- need I say more! Every restaurant this family owns is excellent.... but good food usually involves a wait. Get there early and for large groups, definitely call ahead to make reservations. They also have an oyster bar that you can just walk in, take a seat and order up!”
