Drinks on the porch. Don't bother with food.

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... read more

They think they can set up shop in osterville by the water, put on some reggae, over charge for everything and serve garbage food? Please, stay away unless you are a rich, yuppy d0uche.

Service was good, canned beer (only) was cold, but that is where the story turns ugly... Unremarkable Chowder, routine caesar salad, Buffalo boneless chicken overcooked served with paper-paste dip plus tasteless frozen haddock filet plus 3 beers for $75, Huh? The food was awful. Summer might be better with fresh food and draft beer, but the prices are way too... More

Went here for dinner with friends. Small place at a boat yard with delicious food. Lovely Cape Cod atmosphere. Waitress couldn't of been more accommodating. The 3 of us had different entrees and we were all thrilled with the portions. This place does not deserve any negative comments. Can't wait to return.

My wife had a "dinner salad". Her comment was that she had gotten more "greens" on a whopper last week. My burger was tasty but the fries were greasy and cold. The astronomical prices must be to keep the riff raff out, because the food wasn't worth half the price. Drinks were dear, too. Two stars you ask? The waitress... 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
