One of the oldest restaurants in the area, some days it's the best place to be! When the wind and water kick up on a windy day it can be fun to watch it all happen here. Waves crash and splash over the road, locals have fondly nicknamed it the "Route 5 Car Wash". During the winter you may find it encased in any icy Eeriness ;-) Fun place to be in the summer too, food and drink served outside on their fenced patio. Locals stop to take in the view, others for a drink at the bar and some folks swear they have the best fish fry ever...
