The seafood here was as good as any coastal restaurant. Loved the historical ambience. Nice wine list. Waiter was a bit inattentive but the restaurant was crowded so I'll give him a pass.

This place is worth the drive from York. Interesting selection of beers and the cheese fries are THE BEST! The staff are always friendly.

Wonderful time with friends but the service was a bit slow and the food was okay. Nice ambiance. Very costly beer and drinks.

It took us two hours to get our food. The waiter was new and forgot to put our order in. The food was overpriced and not that good. Two small scoops of ice cream was $8.00. Would not recommend this resturant. Go to Union Station.
