We have been to this spot 2 years in a row. Both times we had fabulous food and service. The food is creative and you can enjoy lots of choices ranging from sandwiches and burgers to seafood and steaks. We arrived this year to find no table available. Not surprising as the place is small, located in a very busy... More

Sorry to say upon my visit this year I got very sick. I had the Haddock special. Thought they would prepare it a little different than most places because this place has always been very cool and inventive compared to all the usual seafood places in the area. I do love Haddock the usual way too, but am on a... More

Visited in September with friends. The breakfasts were great! Wonderful Eggs Benedict. Friends enjoyed their Irish Benedict. Whole experience there was great! Staff were courteous and helpful. Fast Service and friendly faces. Will be returning there next summer.

We stopped here for dinner based on Trip Advisor ratings and were not disappointed. The physical space is tight, the atmosphere, nothing special....... but the food was cooked to perfection and portion sizes were more than enough to fill us up..... we had to get dessert to go because we would have exploded if we ate it there!.

I have to admit we were a little doubtful as we walked through the door because the initial impression is more "Bar" than "Grill" but we were so pleased we sat down at a table!! The waitress was extremely friendly and helpful and the menu choice is good both in terms of food and drinks (excellent beer selection). We had... More

Great food and masses of it - super value. If you can eat that is served up you must be very hungry. Service very good.

We've been here many times in the past. They have a more abbreviated fall menu now that the summer is over. I had the short ribs with brussels sprouts, bacon crumbles and horseradish mashed potatoes. It was excellent and very filling. My friend had the herb roasted chicken with corn bread stuffing and cranberry relish which she said was excellent.... More
