Quaint, upscale and delicious food. A little pricey but perfect for a special treat. You have to take the spiral staircase up to the widows walk. A beautiful view of the water.

I have food allergies and some times when I go to a restaurant while traveling it can become an issue. The chef sometimes can't deviate. However, the Old Fort Pub had no such issues. The food was fabulous and the Fili's service was exceptional. This restaurant could easily become my go to restaurant every time I'm in the area. Thank... More

Fantastic sunsets from the patio, the dining room and especially from the crows nest. Take your excellent martini made by Mark up to the nest and enjoy one of the finest sunset spots on earth. Philly, the server, is the best at making you feel comfortable whether eating in the dining room or the cozy bar. Outdoor seating is great... More

Was there for a romantic birthday dinner. Arrived just prior to sunset so we went to the bar and had some great cocktails and then then climbed the spiral staircase to the crows nest for a great sunset view. Wait staff was extremely attentive and timely. Now the food.....asparagus soup nothing special the same as the bland salad and dressing.... More

The best part of the Old Fort Pub experience is the view. Our group had a wonderful server named Dan; attentive without driving us crazy and I appreciate that very much. My cocktail was delicious. What would be even better would be great food. My entree, the bouillabaisse, was quiet disappointing. The mussels were itsy bitsy teeny weeny and all... More

Wonderful views of the Creek from inside. Outside seating available. Many inventive and creative entrees as well as appetizers. All prepared with care. Service incredible. Not the cheapest place on the Island but probably the best. Saw the sun set as we dined. Birthday dinner was incredible.

The best part of our dining experience was the decor and views from our dinner table. The food is average for the price. Great wine menu; however our server did not know how to open, present or pour the champagne. And at $100 a bottle, I expected professional wine service. The server was very attentive and very friendly; but NOT... More

The Old Fort Pub feels very much like the clubhouse at your golf course. From the classic bar to the white linen tablecloths in the restaurant, you'll be happy you dressed nicely and left the children at home with the sitter. The view of the water is very pleasant and the food and service were top notch. If you've had... More
