Yes, yes, Guy Fieri sent us. When we moved here last year, it was a must for me to check it out. I can't say I expected much in terms of service and atmosphere. It's a dive bar! But we were a bit surprised. The bar tender was cool, he let us linger a while before and after. The food... More

Simple menu, burgers, and comfi food in a local bar atmosphere. They don't rush you and are happy to let you either sit and chat or drink as well. Ample free parking outside. A solid back up to have.

We were looking for some simple good food, but didn't want too much restauranty attitude. And that's just what we got. It was a busy Saturday night, so we took a seat at the bar. The bar tender was friendly if not more than a little cheeky. They had a good selection of craft/normal beers on tap, a few wines... More

This used to be a great local "dive" with good seashore/ pub food, such as burgers, salads, fried calamari, fish and chips. My friends and I loved it and we would often take visitors here for some local color and decent basic food. It was even once featured on the Food Network / Diners Drive-ins and Dives. Unfortunately, while riding... More

I expected it to be. I have motored past this leaning shacky looking place for years. It was featured on triple D and maybe at that time it was something to write home about, but my experience was not good. I love seafood. I have eaten my share of seafood up and down the RI - CT coast for 35... More

I find it funny that people act as if this is a gourmet venue just because of triple D. One of the words in that show's title is "dive". And, yes, this is a classic example of a true dive with its sloping floors, funky decor, and a cast of characters at the bar. But the food is great for... More

This place has been here for ever. And the food is always good. Good sea food, great burgers and even the salad. Service is good and a great place to get together with friends.

Whether your grabbing the wings and chowder at the bar or their favorite burgers and fried fish table side, you can't always find such a friendly place like this.

Best burger in a 14.2 mile radius. I made up that number, but there are lots of places that claim to specialize in burgers, and they're all ok, but this place is the best. I know there are many fans of this place because it has been here forever and people grew up loving it. I'm not one of those... More

Recently had dinner here while visiting relatives in the area. The restaurant is an old barge I think and sits right on the river. It has a real old feel to it and a nice, pleasant atmosphere. Had a cheeseburger that was not at all memorable. This seems like a great place to have a few drinks and watch a... More
