A first-rate brew pub right off the main drag. Friendly service and excellent raw oysters. Well worth a visit.

Ordered the lobster cocktail, lobster bisque & Lobster Seafood Bake which came with a cup of clam chowder & blueberry pie. Everything was absolutely delicious. We were in a food coma after we were all done. Couldn’t finish all the mussels. The bartender was great!

The fish taco's were good. Big comfy chairs at the bar, stacked very tightly together... not much room to move around. They could probably do with one less chair. Otherwise, great service and good food!

The service was so bad!!!! Will not return. All the servers and "bartender" made us feel like we were an interruption to their day. It felt like they had had a long summer dealing with tourists and wanted everyone to go away. Three meals ordered,...More

We stopped in for dinner in mid-August and returned again in late September for lunch. On both occasions, we felt the service was above average despite being pretty busy and never felt that we were left out. Their Clam Chowder is well above average (on...More
