Great view, good food, nice people...but slow.

We got there on an excptionally busy night, so the food took forever, but the servers were pleasant and appologetic. We had nowhere to be, so the sunset view and beers were perfect, Good calamari, fish and chips, clam chowder. Not spectacular food, but good and decent prices. The view is the... read more

While the view might be great, the food is sub-par at best. What was once one of their great appetizers, amazingly fresh calamari, has turned into old frozen chewy inedible bits. The chowder was gluey, did not taste of clams or bacon and was probably thickened with corn or potato starch. It was difficult to get the barkeeps attention as... More

As you can imagine, I was very disappointed to read this review. This is the last impression we'd ever want our guests to have of us, and hopefully you just caught us on an unfortunate off night.

The food was absolutely fantastic! I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was one of the best I've ever had. We also ordered the Spiced Vanilla Creme Brûlée for dessert, and that was excellent as well, though perhaps a little small for the price. The only thing stopping me from giving them an excellent review was the service. It... More

Right on the harbor. Seals at the window. How can you beat it. Food is good and fresh with good chowder. Well worth it.

Hi Rmassoudi, thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We want you to know that we never aim to serve a mostly good meal.

AFter a disappointing experience at the Galley, we walked by this place and saw the sign for All you can eat crab on Tuesdays. Promptly shown to a table, promptly served drinks, slight wait for our food but they were slammed. Seemed to be getting to them, as soon as we sat and were being greeted, a waiter walked up... More

Should have read the reviews before we sat down, not while we waited for our food as it was taking too long! All i can do is laugh at how this place operates. The previous reviews are by no means exaggerating. It wasn't busy ( 4 tables - 2 tables of 2 and 2 tables of approx 8 to 10)... More

It was a okay place. We ordered the fish and chips and Clam Chowder in a Bread Bowl. The Fish and Chips (garlic fries) were good but nothing special. The garlic fries were very strong. It took over 15 minutes to get our Clam Chowder after we already got our fish and chips. It was good but not great. We... More
