Disappointed because the TV coverage went out

We went to watch the Patriots play on Sunday. The place was packed and it was a very friendly group of people. The beer on tap was served in big goblet glasses, but it wasn't very cold. The TVs ended up losing the signal in the middle of the third period and never came back on. The place... read more

This is a cool, Boston-themed sports bar. Yankee fans need not attend! Good food and drinks and a very casual atmosphere. It is a fun bar and lots of good people work there. It is located upstairs, so the people on the boardwalk watching is great.

We happened to get there during happy hour, all of these drinks come double the size at half the price. The margaritas were PERFECT. Also had fish tacos and a jalapeno bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer. Service was great, sitting outside was awesome. Loved this place.

We use to go here when it was located down the street. Now it's on the second floor, over looking pier avenue. We went mainly for the people watching but were pleasantly surprised by the food. I had the ribs and they were tender and juicy. My wife had the turkey burger and said it was very good. Even if... More

An older pub that is in need of a face lift. Washrooms were disgusting and no one seemed to care. Old TV's with poor picture this place doesn't compete with the pubs street level.

We took grilled fish Mahi Mahi and pasta Marinara. The fish filet was dry and nearly cold, quite small. The pastas were much too cooked. Avoid those plates or go somewhere else. The terrace is not even pleasant.

Worst margarita I've ever had in my life - 90% water - but that's probably my own fault for ordering a margarita on the rocks at a non-Mexican place, my husband's beer looked like a better order. Fish tacos were okay - I've had better but definitely had worse too. Service was good and it was a nice place to... More

My husband and I went here two times while visiting on vacation. Excellent service from the two beautiful female bartenders. The fish tacos were outstanding. The manager Gary was so awesome because he shipped back the tablet we left at the restaurant. We look forward to going back their when we return in Sept. Great food, Great service, and excellent...
