Went here on arrival in St. Andrews while waiting for our room to be readied. Food was okay -- typical pub fare -- and service was friendly, but the atmosphere was wonderful. Sat on the deck by the water under a huge horse chestnut tree, enjoying the breeze and the view of Maine across Passamaquoddy Bay. If we didn't have... More

Nice waterside patio, friendly but chaotic service, waitstaff obviously doing their best. Food is instantly forgettable - overcooked mussels, deep fried seafood so devoid of flavor and so suspiciously uniformly breaded it might well have been deep frozen, lobster sandwiches that had barely met a crustacean.. Great fries to be fair. Worst dish was the chowder which was chockfull of... More

The steamed mussels were very good. Friendly service. We ate on the deck where we had a beautiful view.

The waiter was wonderful but too bad the food was not. The food just wasn't good. We had the haddock and the fried clams. Too much coating on clams and way too big not edible. Disappointing.

We ate here as the patio in the back looks out to the ocean. Our service was prompt and very efficient. The decor is cute and pub style. I am not sure why but to walk to our table we passed through the kitchen which to me is always a good sign. We had a fresh local fish sandwich which... More

Such a shame the service is horrible here. They have one of the best patios in town. Annette our server was all kind and attentive until she learned that we would only be having drinks and salad. She didn't make eye contact, and basically just slapped e food down in front Us and went about visiting with all her other... More

Probably the most expensive and disappointing meal of our 2+ week Maritime trip. Food was "alright" but WAY over priced for the plates we received. Service was ok. The feel of Saint Andrews was lost inside - it didn't have a stitch of atmosphere - granted, it was raining and we couldn't sit on the patio. Left me feeling "meh"... More

Went to this restaurant, that We have enjoyed in the past. "What happened here!" The atmosphere/ view from the deck was great. The service was ok. The food was terrible. We ordered and the food arrived within minutes, our first clue something was not fresh. The fish and scallops looked and tasted frozen rather then fresh. The breading...I can't describe.... More
