Our first trip into Ark's and I would go back in a minute. Micha was our server and she was fantastic! Five adults and two young ones and no one walked out disappointed or hungry. I can't say enough about Micha and her service. She was totally awesome!! Thank You!

First of all, the atmosphere at the Ark is very poor. It is very dark and the furniture is rustic. The tables are very close to one another. We went there because they were supposed to have really great hamburgers. I did not find this to be true. There are several other bars at the shore that have much better... More

Every time I enter the Ark, I ask whether they have fresh cod. If the answer is "Yes", I will order blackened cod for lunch. Yea, I know I'm in a rut, but the blackened cod has a great taste, and the chef cooks it well. My wife orders batter dipped cod, which is aso a good choice. Some day,... More

We stop here each time we visit the shore for the past 5 years. My favorite is the shrimp scampi over angel hair pasta. My wife tries something different each time.

I love the Ark! It's a nostalgic small place on the side of the road near the beach. Come as you are, nothing fancy but basic wonderful food with icy cold beer. The burgers are wonderful. The salads are crisp and homemade dressings especially the blue cheese is wonderful. Try the hot turkey, it is really great! Their specials are... More
