This place is definitely a gem. The food is amazing!! They recently remodeled to provide indoor dining and it is such a cozy environment, geared toward the comfortability of the customer. I definitely recommend you stop in. I also must mention the homemade tartar sauce is on another level. I'm definitely a regular and if you try it you will see why. (My pictures do not do this place justice)
