Good, easy food

Very casual spot and we enjoyed our meal very much. This was the night before they closed for the season and was a bit worried about what we'd get. They had $5 special mussels and they were terrific.

We had the smoked wings and loaded chips. Both were excellent. The wings were actually the best we'd ever had. Wait staff was very attentive. Atmosphere exactly what we expected...casual river front. We will continue going back as long as they are there.

We visited this restaurant in early July 2015. We sat down and were waited on by "Joe." I asked if there was any beer on special, and we went to the bar and came back saying there was no special. My wife ordered an inexpensive domestic draft beer. Both of us ate sandwiches, which were average. French fries were very... More

The bbq here is very good. I had the half chicken with sweet potato fries and was full before I was half way done. Watching the sunset while eating dinner right on the pier was an experience that I recommend to everyone.

Stopped for lunch and enjoyed eating outside. The food and service were very good. I especially liked that the bar tender knew how to properly make a Tom Collins, which is a "dated" drink I really enjoy.

We went to this place during the 4th of July holiday. The first problem was the staff. We overheard the waitress who didn't want to wait on a another customer because they were rather obese and communicated this to the other staff but used profanity to describe the customer. The other problem was the food, it was AWFUL. We ordered... More

Great sandwiches, salads, fish and chips and excellent littleneck clams. Nice service on the patio and attentive staff. We visited by boat with friends and received prompt service and good food!

This is the best ever in A-Bay... Wood smoked pork ribs, chicken,brisket and many other delicious menu selections. Reasonably priced and lots of it. Our 13 yr old grandson devoured a whole rack of ribs. I loved the smoked half chicken and my husband the Hadock dinner. Fresh air on the dock and watching the boats dock up. Our waiter... More
