Last tome i was here was in 1991 & it is the same place as it ever was, & I mean that in a good way. Good comfort food, good beer & liquor drinks. Try the lobster roll, or one of their burgers.

it's so so, bar seems to be okay. Food is average. Portions are good. Fish 'n chips and stuff like that. Not my cup-a-tea. But a friend of mine loves it. Seating is rustic.

We hadn't been to the Mariner since they introduced their new (at the time) young chef, who had been a finalist on one of the Cooking Challenges on TV. I imagine that he moved on since the menu was back to being typical of what...More
