Up front, this place doesn’t look very big, but if you head past the counter, you’ll find a little dining room and a decent-sized backyard with some picnic tables. It’s sort of like being at the beach, minus the ocean. So, if it’s nice out, head over here and get a pot of crab legs and shrimp. The food is a mix between Caribbean and New England-type stuff, and they also do things like jerk chicken and bunch of sandwiches on Johnny cake. And feel free to supplement any meal with a carafe of rum punch.
