The waitress that we had was excellent. My kids loved that they could play with legos and color while waiting for our food. The food was pretty good. The kids menu didn't have very many choices, however. The worst part of our experience was that it was biker weekend, and so we had a very difficult time finding a place... More

Enjoy watching tourists, then shopping before or after this great food experience. Staff is always pleasant. you generally don't have to wait for a table long, and you get to pick your own table

Local fried perch for dinner (excellent), salt potatoes, salad, coleslaw, good coffee and a decent piece of apple pie a la mode for dessert (shared between 2). Didn't break the bank either. Would definitely go back again.

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.
