Arrived on a peak Friday night, place was packed, about two hours before a sold-out Casino performance. Would be at LEAST a 20-minute wait, and then.... Offered full dinner service at the bar as an alternative. Well....OK, I guess. Here's a tip. The bar upstairs has an outstanding view of the ocean, has attentive service, and probably more fun with... More

By far, the best fried clams on the beach! LOVE the Garlic Honey BBQ wings here. DELICIOUS. The steak tips are also AMAZING ♥ This is my go-to restaurant when we visit Hampton. Thumbs up all around!

Love the boardwalk restaurant. Great food and nice beach atmosphere. Both indoor and outdoor dining. Great spot to eat and watch the fireworks from on a Wednesday night

We discovered this gem on our weekend getaway in June. Since then, I have stopped here for lunch on each of my beach days. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. I've had the fried clams (both strips and whole bellies), the coconut shrimp, crab cakes and the scallops wrapped in bacon. The bartender who is usually there on the... More

The first thing we noticed when we walked in to the upstairs bar/restaurant was that the music was deafening so we went out on the deck. Good news...nice view. Bad news...crappy over priced seafood. Those of us who got something other than seafood were generally pleased. The seafood eaters however were highly disappointed. Small portions of either under or overcooked... More

We loved this place! The food was great and the staff were wonderful! We had drinks and apps on Friday night when we arrived in Hampton. We ended up liking the upstairs bar so much we went back for dinner on Saturday before our show. Then back again for a drink and app after!

We have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. It's a great place for the kids too. Our kids love the Chicken Parm which is actually made to order not a pre frozen hockey puck. The Clam Chowder is worth a try along with their Steak Tip Caesar salad. The tips are tender and flavorful and you... More

Nothing about this place is overly memorable. The food isn't fantastic, and the drinks aren't strong. But the lobster chowder is OUT OF THIS WORLD. It's decadent, salty, and has huge lobster chunks in it. I would keep coming back for just that. And the patio and roof top seating is pretty neat. Also, the nachos looked delicious in passing....

Had great views at this location. We ate indoors both times (upstairs, open air, but indoors). Nice table top/pub table style. Great service, good food. Average for bar atmosphere. Great drink in a souvenir cup. 2nd time, ate downstairs, I think it was air conditioned, but because doors are open, felt just a tad warm - not bad though. Great... More
