Been a few times, it's ok. Cool location for a drink. Food is nothing great, actually the food is disappointing. Suggest spending your money elsewhere. I think this place has a lot of potential. But the Staff is a bit snotty and that's what has turned me off from this place. Its unfortunate, because I visit osterville often and it... More

I took my wife, sister, son, daughter-in-law and kids to an early dinner. The prices were outrageous, i.e. $17 for a burger? The jerk chicken was bland, the fish tacos tasteless, the small hamburger looked like it had been run over, the noodles and cheese for my grandson lacked cheese. Not one food item had anything merit at all. Service... More

Wow-the 4 and 5 stars must be from folks who work there or were paid off. The drinks were watery with no flavor-in a glass FULL of ice-one sip and not only does it taste bad-it's gone-for $10. It only gets worse. The food was awful, the prices are ridiculous and the bill was wrong. They had the guyunes to... More

No reservations!! small porch for waiting with a drink. Had a watermelon Mojito that was good, could have had more muddled watermelon in it and a little easier on the ice. I hate watered down drinks when all the ice melts! Many places extend the volume of your drink by too much ice! I started with a salad that had... More

Went on the high recommendation of a friend. Not what I expected at all. It's on the water but there is no outside seating or even a water view. Prices are high. Menu is small.

Great setting on the water. Big price tag for food and drinks. The drinks were big and good and I didn't mind paying the $13 dollars for them, I did however mind being overcharged on my for them. The best part was the waitress knew that it was overcharged, finished my sentence before I asked and then said "do you... More

Make no mistake...this is a bar with a few tables for food. The place is very loud, food was okay - we had mixed reviews amongst our party - my wife enjoyed her salad; the kids gave the chicken tenders a "2" on a 10 point scale, and while i loved the idea of a seared tuna crusted with cape... More

Sat at the bar. Very loud, but we got use to it. The bartender was not friendly, never smiled, and took forever to take our order. Seemed to have an attitude like she was doing us a favor waiting on us. The drinks were good. Cost - definitely high.

Food was good, pricey. Service good, but very loud 8oz cheese urged with fries cost $15.00. Some interesting menu items. My wife wants me to give it another chance.

What a find! A quaint out of the way place with a lovely and varied menu. Lots of boats coming and going on the water. You'll feel like a local!
