Interior - Visit our beach-themed family restaurant in New Hartford, Connecticut, for homemade soups, fresh seafood, and catering services. SAN DIEGO SUNSET INSPIRATION COUNTRY WEDDING


With over 60 combined years

of hospitality experience,

Michael and Deb,

along with their staff,  

have been serving you since 1994

in their funky, little beach cottage.

We feature casual coastal cuisine

(aka "beach food")

in a unique atmosphere.

One newspaper described our restaurant  as

"an immediate sense of planned chaos

with a slightly irreverent approach to food"

 - a classic menu always with a twist !


Check out our eclectic interiors filled

with tacky touristy things and "ceiling art" -

business cards from customers around the world...

just drop your card in the beach bucket

to be added to our collection.  

A wall in our foyer is dedicated

to international sunsets and blue skies -

send us a postcard from your travels

and we'll add it to ours.



We also feature revolving crafts and artwork


magnets and shirts

from Yay! Life!
