We ordered among other items 4 cups of clam chowder. watery, no potatoes, very small amount of clams, barely warm - The worst ever. My wife ate half of it and left the rest. If you want clam chowder this is NOT the place

This is a great place for a casual lunch, this is our second trip to OOB and we plan to make this lunch stop a tradition. Definitely no frills and expensive for what it is but it meets expectations. I was disappointed to see that...More
