Clam chowder was nice and hot a little to peppery. Coconut shrimp did not taste like coconut overcooked. Baked haddock was disappointing Over all I was embarrassed for we took a couple of friends there for dinner they even said the fish n chips were overcooked. Maybe go for pizza and beer next time, hope they don't screw that up!

It was very beachy and casual. Great beers on draft. They have their own infused vodkas although we didn't try those. The owners should have a "vodka flight" so you can see which flavor is a favorite.

Tittle says everything; The food was very tasty and cooked exactly how we asked. We had steak tips, fried shrimps and a cheeseburger. The cheeseburger meat was like a kiddie size (that was disappointing), shrimps (7 reg size) and around 7-8 steak tips were very delicious and cook to perfection. Onion rings were the best I had in years and... More

Get your groove on and party like its 2019. In the summer they have pretty decent bands and sometimes drink specials. Food is reasonable considering the location so close to the beach. Parking is tight.

Love this place. We always eat on the bar side. Friendly people and staff. The owner is always around to say hi. The food is beach bar food. Clams and fries are good. Love the fish tacos! They have specials that change often, whatever they feel like making on a given day. We stop in whenever we're on the island.

I'm not sure what else to say other then this was the worst dining experience that I have had possibly ever. The parking lot was empty which should have been the first sign of a bad experience to come. Our waitress was totally out of it, the food orders were incorrect and the food was gross. Don't get the corn... More

I wasn't sure what to expect from a beachy kind of restaurant. The coconut shrimp was perfectly cooked, meaty and tasty with the marmalade jam. The lobster wrap was delicious. My friend and I were too stuffed to eat dessert, but when I go back, and I will, I will get the fried dough!
