Great hang out/dining spot off the beaten path

Discovered this place about 2 years ago in a rainstorm, looking for lunch. Was very pleasantly surprised. We enjoy the catch of the day fish sandwiches, the martinis at Happy Hour, their chowders, etc. Very friendly service and fair prices. We opt to sit in bar area at a high top table to watch... read more

A nice stop off the beaten path. Free parking. Very nice service. Clean. Prices were what you would think. Beer selection was good, and tap pours were good. Food was excellent (we ordered stuffed mushrooms, crab pizza, and crab-seasoned fries). We would go here again.

We visit this place every year when we go to Atlantic City. Each time, we order different things. Everything is decent. Nothing outstanding, but certainly a safe bet for decent seafood. You may not be wowed, but you won't be disappointed either.

I enjoyed it, but considered a typical bar. Nothing spectacular or special. Staff was friendly, prices were a bit high for a local bar, but very reasonable compared to the casino fare.

Came across this restaurant by chance while driving desperate for a nice place to have dinner with the family... The problem was that we were driving at 12:00 in the night!!! Well, we asked and were allowed inside (to the restaurant area, because we had a child with us). The menu has a lot of options (and I mean a... More

Near Resorts & Taj Mahal, this restaurant/bar hits the spot for food and drink. The staff is great and the bar tenders cool. Pricing is decent considering location. Portions are abundant, especially the appetizers. You won't walk away hungry or thirsty!

Every other restaurant in AC is Italian or a pizza shop. This is another. Good, not great, but passable. AC lacks inexpensive parking, and inexpensive food.

We had dinner on a Wednesday evening about 6:00. Plenty of tables then, but filled up pretty quickly. We all had fish - salmon, crab cakes and scallops. The food was good BUT my (supposedly plain) broiled scallops were loaded in garlic. If you like garlic, it was probably tasty, but I wanted it plain as described in the menu.... More

Nice place to eat off the beaten track, located in Flagship Resort. Food was good, average to a little bit high priced. Nice atmosphere.
