The food is good, service is hit or miss, and atmosphere is loud. Piano bar upstairs is a lot of fun.

We were here twice last year and had their lobster risotto which was awesome. This time they only offered vegetable risotto with lobster added. It was not nearly as good. Sat there for 10 minutes and waved the server who was then very attentive. Piano and singer was great. Haddock was not tasty. Would have preferred to had more flavour.... More

After a long day we wanted to relax and have some fun. I had been to this place before and had a great time. We did not go to eat but to listen to the piano and have a cocktail before calling it a day. Did not disappoint.

Four of us went to the restaurant for dinner, which was good. After dinner we wondered upstairs to the piano bar to see what was happening. Let the fun begin! Even if you do not enjoy singing in this type venue you will have a fun time watching the activities. We went for one drink and stayed 2 hours. Rather... More

Seriously, just go. I've never had a bad time upstairs at the bar. Great crowd, nice strong drinks, really fun with the piano going. Get there earlyish to beat the line and go slow until the place fills up.

If you come to ogunquit, you must come here. First of all, our service was the best we had all weekend. We sat at the bar and our bartenders nick and nick were phenomenal. Hands down two of the best bartenders we've ever had- anywhere! The food was fabulous... We had delicious macaroni and cheese and a NY steak... Both... More

This place was recommended to us from friends. And I am glad it was! We would have NEVER stopped at a piano bar. The atmosphere was warm, welcoming and happy! We sat upstairs in the bar, next to window. We people watched below for nearly 2 hours. Along with singing to some of the songs! Everyone was clapping, singing and... More
