This was a great place for lunch-sort of a dinner/cafe with a bar. I had delicious seafood chowder and fair quiche for lunch. My partner's burger was deemed very good. Nothing fancy, nice local vibe. Many people knew each other. Prompt and friendly service.

My wife and I had dinner there in September. The service was below average.The house wine was generic for $5.50 per glass. The meals were very large with a lot of fries.There was a $2 surcharge on the clams.The corn chowder was the best she has ever had.I thought it was very pricey for what we ordered.

This is a good family restaurant with reasonably priced, nothing fancy, meals. Be prepared to wait for a table, but it is worth it if you are out for a decent meal. This is not fine dinning but a neighbor eating establishment. Service is usually pretty fast.

Saw the reviews on Trip advisor so stopped by. A favorite of the locals, it's cozy and busy and folks at the bar knew each other. I ordered fried scallops, which were phenomenal and a huge portion; coleslaw was good but french fries were not as freshly prepared.

Lived on Plum Island and this was our favorite place to eat. Limited seating, limited menu ... but, great seafood and friendly local charm. Big fire years ago, and locals bought future credits to help them continue to pay the staff and rebuild. Locals "love" this place. Not fancy, but a place you will return to.

Love this place. Paneling, college banners, waitresses that have been there for years. The beer is cold. Fried clams sweet. Crabmeat roll amazing. Check out the specials. Old school with great prices. Yum

Despite a recent change in ownership, this local pub/restaurant remains reliably and consistently excellent. The food is well priced and offers a good value day in and day out.
