Great live music, good food

The food was very good. My wife said the lobster roll was the largest she had on the island. Onion soup was fantastic and my rotisserie chicken was good although not astounding.

Waited 40+ minutes for a table. Ordered an appetizer special which consisted of two scallops wrapped in pork belly, cost over ten dollars. Then was served an ice cold lamb shepherds pie - refused it and took it off the tab. The other three in our party were satisfied with their expensive small dishes. See you never again.

Had dinner here. We had Crab cakes, Salmon & Fish-n-chips. All was delicious. Seasonal fruit Martini was very good! This restaurant has a lot of seating , so we were able to be seated right away & it was 6:30.

Paddy's is a relatively new English pub. It has a great menu and the food was superb. Very nice atmosphere and great location.

Super cocktails, beautiful decor, and innovative pubified New England cuisine. We really enjoyed the Blue Hill Bay Mussels, Scottish Salmon, and Ribeye Steak. The sauces accompanying the dishes were well done and all the ingredients flavorful and fresh. This restaurant has heated sidewalk seating with a view of the harbor.

It was a perfect location, right on the harbor. There was a live band that made for a festive atmosphere. People were listening and singing along out on the sidewalk. The food was excellent; we had a lobster salad and steak.

We enjoyed our breakfast on the sidewalk, taking in the ocean view and watching passersby. The food was great. I had yogurt with granola and fresh fruit. The kids had eggs, bacon, pancakes. My husband loved the corned beef hash. Our server was nice yet food service was a bit slow. Nice, clean restaurant. We had also walked past later... More

We had the most delicious breakfast...authentic Irish meal, Squeek n bubble. Sat out side looking out at the water and a bit of people watching. Then we hopped on a boat. After the tour, we went right back to Paddy's for lunch, another delicious meal. Wait staff courteous and friendly. Highly recommend.

Following a whale-watching tour, my husband and I decided to dine at Paddy's for lunch. We sat outside on the patio which was perfect for taking in all the views as well as people-watching. Our waiter was very attentive and our lunch, along with a couple beers was just what we had hoped. We must say that our absolute favorite... More
