Mussels and Crispy Duck

I recently enjoyed mussels at this restaurant and was surprised to see how varied their menu now is. My friend had Crispy Duck and said it was very good. This is a popular patio in the summertime and is renowned for their Wednesday Wing Night!

This place is great, not only for the food but also for the staff, the patio and the live music (when they have it). Compared to another establishment up the road with the same initials, this place is just so amazingly superior in everything they do that it makes me feel sad for the other. The owners here won't have... More

Fun menu selections. Deep fried pickles are perfect. Outdoor setting comfortable and suitable for children.

Good wings and deep fried pickles. I love the patio. Lots of tables, with live music some nights. We enjoyed the trivia night. Seems like a place for tourists and locals alike. Service can be a bit slow when they're busy.

We visited last week as someone told us Monday night was pizza night. All pizzas are $10.00 & they are delicious. Cooked in wood oven. One pizza was large enough for 2 people. We had a few beers & also ordered one to take home. Great patio with lots of flowers about. Service was great. Will go back

Honestly I don't really remember what I had for supper at this place. I do remember walking out though and feeling the fullest I have ever been though. After eating at most restaurants in Southampton, we were bored and decided to venture out a bit. This place did not disappoint! Our waitress was very kind and our food arrived very... More

We were here for a pre-wedding social in July and had the entire top floor reserved for the private party. Even though it was more of a 'buffet' style for our group, I have to say the food that came out was very good (salads, wings, etc) and the service was excellent. The atmosphere throughout the entire building and patio... More

Had a nice dinner while listening to the entertainment out on the patio. Our meal was good and the service was as well. Would definitely go back.

We wanted a nice meal on a summer evening, outside if possible, and spotted this place with a patio. The food was delicious. I had the "po boy" which was a bbq pulled pork sandwich, spicy and a little sweet on a toasted bun which was so fresh and the skinny fries (the way I like them best) were fresh... More

We were on a motorcycle trip and saw this place while passing through town so stopped for lunch. Food was excellent and creative. My pulled pork sandwich was topped with three deep fried dill pickles and was excellent. The patio is beautiful and the service was excellent.
