Came here with the kids, amazing place, they sell alcool, but it is also a byow. Had the lobster rolls. Delicious, the waiter catered to all our needs with perfection. This place is underrated.

The place is typical for a touristy area. Big plates, friendly stuff. Since it is in Washington Square, they need to accommodate people fast. So the food is average, but proud won't be hungry afterwards since the plate size is pretty big.

In a town with too many choices, this won't be one I make again. Pretty bland menu. The crab bruschetta appetizer special was decent. We decided to eat dinner somewhere else after sitting down and ordering a bottle of Hawk Haven Vineyard wine (the only...More

I come here every year! The Lobster Roll is great and so is their Clam chowder. The prices are typical of what you would pay in the area.

I enjoyed this restaurant better than similar ones in area. Lobster roll was made with butter and no mayo dressing which I'd never had and was delicious. Service and location was perfect.

The location, ambiance, and service here are excellent. But in a town filled with both chef-crafted wonderful gourmet meals and excellent home-made budget fare, we cannot at all recommend this place. We had some of the worst New England clam chowder ever -- if corn...More
