A few weeks ago I saw a cheery sign that said "Closed For Renovations; Enjoy the Summer!" or something like that.

Now it's change to "Closed for Renovations.'

Anyone know if it's REALLY renovations, or just closed?

      Okay, an answer to my own question. Walked by this afternoon. Door open, lights on, real renovations happening!

          That's a relief. I called them yesterday to see if the phone message had any more details on the renos, but it also just said the restaurant would reopen in the fall.

            I feel the quality has gone down dramatically over the years. Never going back.

          Was there about a month ago on a Monday night. Didn't order anything from the regular menu but all from the chalkboard items. Overall still a good local place.

            Thanks JennaBean - what did you like from the chalkboard menu?

              It changes weekly so I don't think it will matter much but it was all fish/seafood dishes that we had. I didn't make any notes so I can't remember the details at this point.

              One edit - the fries were great! Not fries but fries.
