Local dive with solid food

Good selection of beer, decent menu. We left rock bottom brewery after one round bc the beer was bad. Yes, bad. This place has great onion strings, fried haddock & attentive staff. Definitely more locals than tourists.

Food was first rate, but the service was a bit slow on a Friday night. Great neighborhood bar with friendly service.

Service could have been a tad better, but the food & atmosphere were good. Got the feeling it was more of a local place.

First time in Rockland. There were four of us. We were staying at the Samoset Resort and had golfed so got a late start for dinner. To our amazement we didn't realize everything closes down in this area by 9:00. Went to two restaurants and they just called. Called the Samoset before heading back to see if there restaurant was...

My wife & I went here for a late lunch. The lobster roll and Cobb salad were good. The service could have been more attentive since it wasn't busy at all, but I would go back again. For some reason the beer on tap wasn't cold at all.

We've frequently eaten here for burgers which are pretty decent, but to all of a sudden be charged a "mandatory" 15% "service charge" to pick up a takeout order is ridiculous...probably won't be back for awhile...

Today I conducted an experiment between two place in town with wings and TVs. I got an order of Buffalo Wings to go. The women behind the bar was great. I asked her about a beer I'd never heard of that I could drink while waiting for the wings. She couldn't really describe it. So, she poured about 2 inches... More

If we ever get any, that is ... no really, we will get good weather eventually. The food was imaginative and surprisingly good, making for a wonderful all-around experience on a warm, sunny day. It was a pleasure to have so many good things from which to choose, and we can't wait to return.
