Enjoyed spicy jambalaya with a view over the water. Upper floor is like a sports bar. Nice atmosphere with a vibrant crowd on a Friday night. Gluten free menu available. Service was excellent. Cam buy beer mugs or in-house chocolate treats on way out.

Very nice restaurant with great meal selection as well as locally-brewed beers. Best location is upstairs with harbour views. Monday nights usually has a local group playing Irish music.

Best table side views of the harbour but book ahead. The deck is amazing. We love the smoked oysters and tuna! The craft beers are wonderful and the atmosphere is upbeat pub with some class. Definitely worth taking the little sea taxi across the harbor...More
