Being in a tourist area, our expectations were not high. It had a pub feel. We were two people and got a table by the window where we can watch the tourists and the cool bikes and cars. The wine list was great. We found out that the owner/manager enjoys the same type of reds that we do and adds... More

You must try the "funnel fries." They are tasty. I would serve them up with eggs and sausage with some syrup! The atmosphere is terrific, and there was free wifi on top of it.

Our family of 11 walked in last Saturday at 5:00 pm and had the tastiest, most reasonably priced light dinners that we had enjoyed together in quite a while. Our waitress was friendly, efficient, intelligent and fun! Try the fish tacos, made with haddock that was cooked perfectly. The Summer Salad was laden with fresh small spinach leaves and strawberries.... More

Nice place on Main Street. Enjoyed the fried seafood basket. Salads were very well done. Has a nightly special. Great fries and onion rings. Pleasant staff. I would recommend for a good meal.

We went there wanting to be away from crying kids that were all over the place. Ordered fish and ships and was in for a surprise when it came. More like fish sticks that was deep fried. In any case it tasted alright. Nothing special about this place you would just really go there if you didn't want to wait... More

My wife and I were in the area for a family wedding and had one day to explore. We decided on Alexandria Bay where we took the Boldt Castle Tour (definitely need to do if in the area). We checked Yelp and Tripadvisor for suggestions for lunch. I saw a couple of reviews for the reuben sandwich at Brass Tacks.... More

Food was okay; typical pub food. Beer was good and they gave us legos while we waited for our food - our toddler loved that.
