Great selection of beers on tap, good burgers but rest of the menu is average. Appetizers were mediocre at best. Menu needs a refresher.

Changed for the worse. As a local, this used to be our favorite burger spot. Quality of food has gone down. They may have changed owners. Judging by the look of the new cook and bartender, they may start serving burritos and tacos, instead of burgers and local seafood. HUGE disappointment. Adios, El Arko.

I had heard the Ark had some pretty decent burgers, and I finally made it there on a Friday night. The place was moderately busy, and buzzing. They have a decent bar there, as well as tables and booths. It has a rustic feel. Seems like a lot of locals return here week after week. Our waitress was very friendly,... More

Nice selection of draft beer. Pinto is the bartender with a great memory of your prefered drink. Football appetizer specials for bar patrons.

I went there on a Sunday night, place wasn't crowded and had choice of table. Interior is old, dingy,,,could use a sprucing. Although they gave good portions, food wasnt good. Server was great, she had good personality. Would recommend place for drinks with the guys, but would not eat there.

The seafood was fresh and nicely prepared. You can hang around after your meal to chat and have drinks. This is a pub-like atmosphere, which is very fitting for this quiet end of town. No crowds, very little wait time. Good value and good food.

We visit here regularly and the food and service has always been consistently good. We usually sit at the bar. The bar tenders there are great, always attentive, and cheerful. Their burgers are some of the best around. Its a mixed crowd here, which slowly turns into a younger crowd (mid 20s) as the night progresses but not the unbearable... More

We had many seafood dishes, & the fish, for the tuna it didn't taste fresh at all.. The fry fish batter ... Extremely salted & not fresh either, ... The bread was stale ....very disappointed because had a good recommendation & didn't enjoy my platter.... Perhaps I wish I never had eaten fish at this restaurant......

The food here never disappoints. I think because its not near the Boardwalk and more locals dine here. The burgers are fresh and juicy, the salads are also fresh & very tasty (you can add shrimp, beef, etc) The seafood platter was very tasty and they always have specials. I had a special this past weekend of scallops with mushroom... More
