We went here for the first time on 9/28 for lunch. The setting is great and we thought it would be good based on the crowd, however it was disappointing for all the hype. Our waitress did not tell us about lunch or drink specials, but we overheard the waitress at the next table informing her diners of both. We... More

This is a comfortable restaurant on a very nice waterside location with good food. BE CARE however. Their specialty alcohol drinks are VERY EXPENSIVE, more so than high end restaurants in the area, and they don't list the prices. We were really surprised and a bit upset.

nice location, water view, sat out on the deck. We ordered the clam chowder, swordfish, fried clams and fried scallops. All were really good. Clam chowder was excellent - as was the swordfish. Wine prices were reasonable. We ordered a house margarita - which was great. Great service, good prices. Would definetly go back.

Felt like a "regular"...first time eating there. Food was great. Liked eating on the covered deck, looking out at the view. Vacation at its best. Headed back today!

Our first visit after BG's being recommended by friends. While the setting is a nice water and boat dock view, and the service was very good, the food was barely ok at best. I had the Fried Calms which were over done, rubbery, and had a "bad oil" taste. My spouse had the Lobster Role which was only ok, The... More

My wife and I and our son and grandson came here for our final meal of a week-long vacation as I had saved it for last based on many previous visits. Two of us had fried seafood platters and one had fish and chips. All the meals were terrible. The seafood platters consisted of undercooked scallops that were coated with... More
