Love this place! Service, entertainment, sports on TV if early and you’re interested. Tracey, our server, remembered us from a previous visit. So personable! Can’t say enough. Come in, sit, enjoy, don’t rush, take in the atmosphere, food (chowder and stew!), music and Irish dance.

A quick lunch stop and the best seafood chowder you'll have. Pub/sports bar atmosphere but fairly quiet at lunchtime.
