Great Pub food....Good ocean view

The prices are a little high, but you are paying for the view. The food is great too. I like a good fresh pressed sandwich, and salad, with a cold beer on tap. It sits right on the ocean, outside seating. Its great for the family, the kids get a good view, and its bench style seating inside.

Food was not very good. The chowder was thickened using a lot of flour and lacked clams, potatoes or flavor. We ordered fish and chips and the fish was also tasteless and extremely greasy. I can't recommend this restaurant to anyone. It is a typical tourist trap.

We went on the advice of two different couples who live locally. It was not all they made it out to be but it was still worth going. We got there about 8:30 they closed at 9 PM on Saturday? I expected they would be open later. We didn't have beer but they sure looked good on draft. We had... More

The barbecue was super. We also tried the clam chowder just to see how it stacked up against some of the more famous local restuarants -- it was superb also. Seating available inside and out.

My wife and I enjoyed the view of the waster and very good food. The restaurant had an impressive selection of beers and the pastrami sandwich was good as many at well known delis. Worth a visit.

We were in town for a family members graduation and arrived as a group of 20. They accommodated us well, moving around tables. I saw the carved beef dipped sandwich and decided to try it . Very yummy! My husband got the fried clam strips: as a New Englander, they were the next best to his beloved elusive whole bellies.... More

A last minute decision and expected the traditional HB type menu since I couldn't get to an online menu quickly. Was disappointed in the food fair expected and limited beer selections. So if you're a traveler and frequent HB, be prepared for a different feel. However the French Dip sandwiches are very good and steak cut calamari are excellent. Staff... More
