First time visiting and will be the last. My husband and I had the rockfish. It was chewy and very dry. On a positive note, waitress was as nice as can be.

This is an old diner that was renovated into a pub; unfortunately, the outside and inside is very much in need of repairs/paint (walkway into and ladies bathroom especially). That said, we knew about the history and were anxious to try it out for lunch,...More

Staff is very friendly I visit here at least once a week. Rockfish bites and steamed shrimp are awesome. The owner takes the time to come and visit every table. Just a great place to eat and hang with friends.
