Took my parents here during the literary festival and was underwhelmed. Location and venue are great but the food was indifferent and staff were disinterested.

This bar is part of the Maritime Hotel, and I have to say for a hotel bar, it's fairly good. Most hotels bars are soulless, but not this one. It's comfy, with a good crowd, and staff treat you like your a local. Food is big here, and even though I didn't partake, I can recommend the hotel food, which... More

We stayed in the hotel but their restaurant was closed when we arrived so we had a meal in the bar. The food and drinks were good basic pub food. Nothing fancy, but still nice. The service was good, it was quite busy. We had a window seat looking over the water and the Carnival Ferris wheel, which was lit... More

The décor is very nice and the live entertainment wonderful! The staff could be a little more attentive and friendlier. We were there for 10 days and they seemed to not remember us at all.

I like having food in the maritime bar. I've never been disappointed. The starter chowder portions are a bit large so I'm not able to enjoy my main but staff is always very friendly and accommodating. It's a great spot to have drinks and food when out.

Although the bar does serve pub food, there is a small bar down a few steps, and it was a fun spot to have a drink with friends before dinner. Features rock music later.

Menu seemed good with something for everyone but we were disappointed with the quality of the food. It was edible but not what we were expecting.
