I've been there 4 times and the food was very good, way more fancy than what I would have thought as a "surfspot". The menu is a unique combination of burgers, ribs, pizza and mussels (excellent, a fav), with an upscale and yummy twist. But service and organization left a lot to be desired unless one goes on a slow... More

I'm not sure that I will return. $6.50 is expensive for a OK beer in a plastic cup (Allagash White). And when paired with an expensive 8 oz burger that was asked to be medium rare and came out (slowly) medium well and with odd crispy, but dry, fries this was worth $10 (not $15), Their perfunctory service simply plopped...

We had a great time... Used one of their cabana areas... Food was delicious... Elijah our host was helpful--carried in decorations, helped with extra seating, made sure we were happy. Great spot for a party ;) nice music all afternoon... Our group ranged from ages 2-80+ and it was perfect!

We decided to try this place instead of eating bowling alley food and were so disappointed. The hostesses were either new to their job or totally inexperienced. Although 60% of the indoor seating was empty, we were told the wait would be 15 minutes. We went outside instead and the weather turned bad so we asked for a table inside.... More

Came into town very late. Had Fish Tacos right before the kitchen closed, they were amazing! And they accidentally poured us an extra beer and offered it to us for free! Outdoor seating is heated. Lots of TVs for sports.

This restaurant has been through lots of changes and has been inconsistent in the past. They have cut back on the extensive menu which has improved overall food quality. Service is inconsistent and drinks/wine can be pricey. We hosted a group of 40 in the outdoor area and had a great experience. Good taco bar and drinks and very attentive... More

This was not the typical boring menu choices of burgers, sandwiches and salads. It was good American food with a flare of interesting flavors. Good service and you can dine inside or outside. Bring the family and enjoy this unique dining experience.

We went here for dinner one night and nearly missed it. Kitchen closes at 9pm. We got there just in time to order fish tacos and beer. The fish tacos are lightly breaded and freshly fried, served on corn tortillas with slaw, pico de gallo, and a zesty sauce. It was a bit pricy, but the flavors were well worth... More

We come here as a family for dinner, or with friends a couple of times a month. There is a large outdoor space where I know I can let my toddler run off some steam or dig in the sand volleyball court. Live music every weekend during the day. Great beers on tap, and they make a mean Moscow Mule!... More
