Friendly, helpful staff. Good food, well presented. The portions were good, not too much but enough to fill a hungry man. The fried clams were delightful. The batter crisp and light. My only complaint was there was only one flavor of Angry Orchard. The price was proper for the food, service, and location.

This place was hopping on Saturday night. The problem was that there were not enough bartenders to handle the patrons....also the band didn't get started till late. Food was just OK at best but it was a fun night.

My wife and I were staying close to this pub on holiday for the week and decided to have a Sunday roast. Although shocked at the price of £12 p/p (which must be paid prior to meal and also sticky semi wiped tables). We recieved a plate of semi warm veg piled into a semi peak with very chewy beef...

Not the most amazing water view, but still nice by the boatyard. They have an nice patio for drinks or food. Our group all got burgers and sandwiches and enjoyed them. The staff was friendly. They even had some live music outside.

Food was good. Menu was different from the last time we were there. Service wasn't terrific. Had to ask for waters a couple of times and coffee took 10-15 minutes before waitress remembered to bring it. Menu was a bit limited. Liked the old menu better but this restaurant could have been under new management a few years ago..not sure.... More

Still mad. Went for an early dinner...sat ourselves outside. Place is nautical and attractive, view not so great, under a boatyard and boats overhead. Waited and waited and waited for waitperson who never came so went up to bar to order drinks and look for a menu. Were told waitress would be with us shortly so waited some more. Finally... More

Very tired place with just average at best food. On the water but under racks of boats so not very scenic if you ask me. Truthfully, just walk down to the Flying Bridge where it may be touristy but they do it right!! Skip this place.

The food is average, but the outdoor deck is awesome! They have a huge outdoor bar. The lobster roll was a bit bland, but very large. I would go back for drinks
