Great place to go with family or friends. Love their fish and chips- super fresh. Also they have a lobster caprese salad, so good! Fried shrimp and fries yummy too! Drinks are great!

Went there for lunch and it a vibrant restaurant for lunch and drinks. It located on the pier and you are surrounded by lots of activity. The food was good. We both had fish sandwiches and each had a drink. The sandwiches were really good and satisfying and the drinks were refreshing. They had a couple of large screen televisions... More

Always a fun casual place for decent food at reasonable prices. Gazebo bar is a popular watering hole for the younger crowd.

We had dinner at The Tavern and were pleased with the service and the food. The location is great, right near the wharf and the atmosphere was very nice. We ate outdoors and the waitress was very attentive.

We had lunch at the Tavern, eating outside on the patio. The Lobster Roll was good, not the best. The Fish Sandwich was also good, not great. The service was very good and the atmosphere was nice.

We had lunch here and the food was fine. the Chowder was ok and the salads were good. A bit disappointed that the waitress wasn’t all that pleased to be helping us out. Great location. Food is fine. Good for lunch.

The food here is terrible!!!! There is nothing worse than overpaying for food and on top of that - less than average food. I would happily pay $20 for a lobster roll at Millies rather than $5 anything from here. Look at my reviews, I usually don't post negative reviews. The "crab cake" was editable but not enjoyable, it wasn't... More

Pub atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating. Really good food like lobster mac & cheese, scallops, salmon, burgers and more. Wonderful location right near the straight wharf. (No problem accommodatingng a stroller.) The sundae looked wonderful!

This was not a good choice. Very tourist oriented and apparently very popular. Not sure why except for the location
