Well known local establishment but totally off their game. Interesting location on the river with nice views but meal quality and service continues to go down hill. All draft beer kicked and no effort to replace taps on a busy Saturday night, odd? Typical abundance...More

hello! Travelling with a 5 year old in February and while she likes lobster, I wondered if you have a children's menu? Thank you!

It's located in a marina and has views of the water and boats with an outside patio. It can be hard to find with all the large boats in the yard.
