Stopped here for lunch and everyone in our party left full and happy. I had the skipper and I must say this sandwich was one of the highlights of my vacation. My wife had the fish tacos and still uses them as a comparison to other fish tacos anytime she orders them to this day. I will definitely be back... More

We were wandering around Rockland looking for a place to have dinner, although neither of us was very hungry- we still needed to eat. Deciding on a water view we took a chance and went down to the Pier. "Archer's" looked inviting so we went in and were immediately seated by a friendly hostess. The atmosphere was a little noisy...
