Good breakfast

Solid place for breakfast. Very busy in-season. Don't seem to have enough waitstaff and had to wait a long time for coffee refills, to be checked on, to get our check. Long menu with lots of options. Reasonably priced. A good option.

A quick ride from home for us, this local attraction pulls patrons from all over. With a strong focus on seafood, excellent service and comfortable atmosphere, there is no wonder why the parking lot is always crowded and the inside is buzzing. We frequent the pub area with it's recently expanded bar, where getting a seat is always tricky as... More

We stopped in for dinner with my wife, two kids and my niece. When we got there there was a long wait but we decided to stay since we thought by the time we find something else we would have to wait also. In most places when you wait they seem to be able to sit quicker than they say.... More

Food was good. Be sure to call ahead otherwise you will wait forever. Slow service because of the crowds. My 7 yr old ordered fried clams. Waitress said they do not offer a child's portion of clams so we should get the appetizer. Sounded good until we paid $25.99 for a big plate that he could not eat. Our fault... More

Not only did we get great service from the attentive Jackie, but their signature dish of lobster with baked stuffing (one and a half pounds) with lemon butter sauce was the best I have tasted yet! The crab cake disappeared in minutes. Their house white wine surprised by being better than those available on the menu. Worth a visit when... More

I want to start by admitting that we visit this restaurant at least twice a month when it's open for the season. Always for breakfast, almost always during the week. Our experiences here during weekday breakfast have been consistently excellent. The waitresses have not had much turnover, and always seem to know when you're looking for a refill on your... More

Good old standby. Get there early; otherwise, a long wait. Freshest fish and ingredients. They offer something for everyone. Could use some redecorating....the bar turned out well.

We had the honor of getting an invitation and were not disappointed. Fast forward a year later... I brought Nanny here on a Friday in August and had another great food experience. Looks are deceiving on the outside and the name may try to scare you away, but once you get past the location just off island and the knotty... More
