The inside of this pub isn't what I would expect to see at a beach. It was very dark and the tables were very close together. Service was fine and food was average. Nothing to brag about here.

We were looking for dinner rather late on a Thursday night and we're so happy we decided on the wharf pub. Their chowder was delicious and a little different from regular clam chowder. The tuna burger was fabulous and the pork sliders were great too....More

Loved this place. Live music and a relaxed pub atmosphere. The venison burger was outstanding with herbed goat cheese and mushrooms and pay the extra bit for the tots. The ma's meatloaf special was also delicious and you can't beat the price.

What more could you ask for. It was crowded and there was a wait but but was worth it. Great selection of beer on tap and we were all happy with our food. The fried chicken was my favorite.
