Our waiter Bobby was very friendly and knowledgeable. He recommended the She Crab Soup saying that they had won the east coast She Crab Soup competition 5 years in a row and achieved the lifetime achievement award for it. I feel like I had not fully enjoyed crab until this soup. I tried to get the recipe. No luck getting the recipe..

With my fiancé being Italian, it’s a given that we seek Italian cuisine. Next door to our hotel was this little gem. We walked in and was greeted with warm sm ... read more
