Small, cute and good!

Location half way up the hill with harbor views and good food. We had the lazy mans lobster (they do all the work and you enjoy a plate of lobster meat). Wonderful.

Lookout is a friendly place with reasonable drink prices and decent menu Bartenders and wait staff are friendly and nice. I go there whenever I can for the camaraderie and outdoor seating. It can get quite Hot outside during the summer. Find a table with an umbrella or stay inside

Nice little place. Had the fish'n chips and it was very good. Service was a bit slow but the place was packed on a Monday night. I always try to find places where the locals go. It's usually a good sign of what to expect. Really loved the place. Will stop again.

Love this place even though it is mega noisy and crowded after work hours. Food is wonderful-great chowder and burgers. Seafood is also good. Staff busy but they do a great job in keeping everyone happy. Lunch pretty calm. Food is good and consistent. Glad to keep going back.

I have eaten here regularly over he last six years. In fact, the name of this restauant is now the Front Street Grill and Bar. Every meal I have had here has been well prepared and reasonably priced. The menu has recently expanded and it remains a good spot for an informal meal.

Let's see, renovations were ugly, the music was an all Jimmy Buffett station, and the bathroom was filthy at 4:30 in the afternoon. And no happy hour prices were given. There's no reason to go here instead of 3 Tides or Rollie's.

We are two women of a certain age (over 50!) and we were delighted with the quality and the service. We would not normally go into a place that is definitely a local bar. There is only one bar tender/waitres and she works the room like a dynamo. We shared an order of sweet potato fries as an appitizer, and... More
