Altogether funky and casual, but service was crisp and pleasant and the food was nice. We enjoyed eating and listening to the jazz concert on the grounds outside the restaurant. No stressed people eat here - it's very casual, friendly, and good.

Sort of dumpy and smells somewhat of beer. A quite good lobster roll - New England style with drawn butter. Generous portion. Good curly fries. Nice reasonable dinner

It is exactly as you expect when you approach the door -- a beach bar with all the appropriate food and drink. And the food is actually well prepared. Lobster roll with lots of lobster and hot buttered roll. Tasty fried clams. Crispy calamari. Turkey...More
