This is a Jersey shore spot where diners can enjoy sitting back and relaxing while watching the fishing trawlers pass by.
The reason to come to this place is to enjoy fresh seafood with a great view. Don't expect gourmet food. The food preparation is simple, with little creativity, and with sides and bread servings of lesser quality.
