This tavern has a great view of the harbor. Really good specialty cocktails and calamari! Nice way to spend a cold wintry aftenoon with good friends!

Went with a group of 11 friends to watch a Sunday night game. Shawn was a complete jerk. The place was empty except for a small group. The heat was on blast, completely uncomfortable even after we asked for it to be lowered. We had to beg for drinks as the waitresses talked about us. We ended up taking a... More

Stopped in for lunch while in the area. Had a great view from the front part of the restaurant where we ate along the bar area. Food and service were good.

Stopped in for lunch after getting off the ferry. What a fun fund! It was pretty busy for being off-peak season. We had a couple of drinks before lunch- that punch is delicious! Not too sweet. Had a lobster roll with fries and the grilled yellow fun tuna sandwich with chips. Both were fresh and the service was fantastic.

Best clam chowder. Bloody Mary's to die for, with "Mary and the boys" with two huge shrimp. Great food, extensive bar with lots of great drink programs, terrific view of the ocean right in front. I could stay there all day. All the seats are high bar stools, all the plates paper, but food deserving of a great restaurant.

This place might be okay on an off-season day with a couple of friends/meals to share, but on your average day or night in the height of the summer season, it is simply too crowded and chaotic. Not a choice for families AT ALL. You will spend the entire time chasing your young around swarmed tables and ramps, traffic and... More

Visited very late season for an evening meal with two tweenage boys. Great sushi. Expansive menu and excellent service. Football was on Sunday evening - loud and vibrant atmosphere with pretty much all the locals and visitors in the area tucking into seafood based fare. Very good.

Nothing bad to say about this location - Everything was great! Clam chowder so good we took some with us for later! Sweet potato fries fresh, hot, delicious and plentiful; coconut shrimps hot and delicious (finger licking good) and the spinach salad had all the ingredients I like in a spinach salad and more!

Every year the owners reinvest in the physical plant , The food, drinks and atmosphere all are superb ,As the name implies , the view is unbeatable . During the high season the Steamship and other vessels are within an easy walk.

We ate our body weight in lobster while holidaying along the New England coastline. This was one of the standout lobster rolls and clam chowder in oak bluff. Great location as the name suggests. Corner location. Looks out onto the ocean. Another fantastic meal.
