We visited here twice in the same day, once to get a light snack while waiting for our room at a nearby hotel and later that evening for drinks and food with local friends. The beer choice is good and during happy hour you can get 20oz for the price of a pint (or if British a pint for the... More

If your allergic to peanuts don't come here. A pub atmosphere with complimentary peanuts, the menu is anything but pub. We enjoyed Seafood Pasta, it was full of fresh seafood and the portion was filling. I enjoyed the stuffed salmon and would recommend it to others. Calamari was overdone, but everything else was great. I thought the price was a... More

I sat outside and enjoyed the view and the quiet atmosphere. The food was good but not memorable. My server was adequate but not very attentive. It was fine for a single visit based on this experience, but I like to give restaurants a second try so I might return if it is convenient.

We loved this place. Fun atmosphere and delicious reasonably priced food. Upstairs if you like lots of noise and free peanuts to munch on and toss the shells on the floor (yup!) and more sedate downstairs minus the peanuts. Nice place and nice servers. Highly recommend.

Visited this restaurant during a family vacation Facilities ok Location ok if staying at close by BW hotel which also entitles to a discount. Food was fairly good even if the clam linguine were floating in far too much liquid. Primavera pasta with pesto was very ok. We perceived the paid price was a bit beyond the quality received but...

I've been here many times. I wouldn't call it fine dining but the food is quite good, it's clean and the ambience and views being right on the water are great. It's a nautical environment and sometimes they have people singing sea shantis. Parking is not a problem. Clientele is both tourists and locals. Located in a relatively safe area... More

I've been going to Quinn's for years but I've only eaten on the upstairs deck. I understand the downstairs restaurant is also very good. But I love to set outside by the water. The food is surprisingly good quality and there's a large selection of beer as well. It's also very casual.
