Sat in the bar at a window table. Fried clams were fantastic! Will return for sure 🎉🎉 The waitress was very nice and attentive. The bar has a very welcoming feel to it.

A good spot in town for a quick bite to eat. Menu is pub food, finger food. Cheeseburgers are delicious and huge! Fries are extra crispy! Cash only, and menu is priced fair for pub food. Fun place with friends or solo.

Best fried clams in Ipswich. We have been there numerous times and the food is always very good. The prices are reasonable for the fish items on their specials. Really worth your time to visit this place.

It was by chance that we stumbled into this warm and friendly "pub" in Ipswich. After a bit of sightseeing in the off season, e wanted some good fish and this is just the place. A wide-ranging menu, but the chef seems to be very flexible in what they will cook for you. It is an iconic east coast establishment... More

We always have a good meal, the portions are great. I always say the prime rib will feed a family of four. Seafood prepared perfectly.
