This place has a large outdoor patio set among old trees if the weather is good, very nice. Otherwise, it has nothing going for it. Food is ok, burgers and sandwiches. Not a place for entrees, stick with a burger. Crabcakes were $23, and not worth it; fish and chips were weird, like fishsticks that were themselves on a stick,... More

This was the second time I have eaten at this place. This time we dined outdoors on the patio. There was a man playing a guitar and singing while we dined which was different but nice. The tables were just outdoor metal round ones with an umbrella and the whole patio had a pirate cove scheme to it. The wait... More

This is a fun place, especially in the summer and the Wednesday night lobster special is a great bargain!! Go early....it gets crowded.

This is a nice restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere.The menu for outdoor seating is good but limited. Their crab/ spinach dip is tremendous! Service was good.

Today was the first and last time I will visit. My husband and I stopped by mid afternoon while we were out riding to relax for a bit and grab a bite to eat. There were plenty of open tables as it was neither prime lunch or dinner time. Loved the relaxed, beach atmosphere and Jimmy Buffet style music. Neither... More

There is no reason that the full menu should not be offered outside as well as inside. The kitchen is the same. And it is no further for the servers.

On a drive to visit the Pagoda in nearby Reading we happened upon this out of the way restaurant/outside bar while listening to the local radio station broadcasting from there. Upon arrival the outside area was fairly busy but we were able to find 2 seats at the bar. The wine selection offered was one brand only (Yellowtail) and when... More

I called several times to arrange a party reservation. Left messages with several people with no call back. Finally I called a few days before to just reserve a table for our party size. When we arrived we were told to go ahead outside. The woman outside said she couldn't seat us! So we went inside to sit. However apparently... More

Basically, it's a TGIFriday's with a poorly done pirate theme and less menu selection! The surrounding scenery is beautiful on it's own. However, the establishment decided to plop a pirate bar in the middle of the mountains. The decor is spot on and everything is very clean. It actually felt a little theme park-ish to me; I half expected Jack... More
