Food was good in a very unique setting. Was a popular local hangout. Too bad it burned in December. It will be missed.

A neat place to just hang out and chat with the locals. The beer is cold and plentiful, I dare you to drink cheaper anywhere. The chowder was tasty, the grilled haddock flavorful but a tad over cooked. Still, a must place to visit, eat...More

It's a little crazy but cool, worth stopping for a cold one on the way to Bass Harbor lighthouse. Funky weird stuff on the wall and nice cold beer. A friendly family owned business, at least during the day when I was there.
