This has long been one of our favorite places to be marooned at dinnertime. Piano music in the background, a very convivial bar crowd, and chef Fred Geesin's tasty seafood creations attract everyone from the Skipper and Mary Ann to downtown business types. Geesin's brightly colored sauces and enticing condiments are awash in Floribbean flavors that complement his grilled seafood offerings perfectly.
