Good

Good place to catch a bite later in the evening, I had three different entrees and all were reasonably priced and tasty. Solo, so ate at the bar... some bartenders friendlier than others.

We had a late dinner on St Paddy's day, traditinal corned beef and cabbage and I had a Reuben sandwich. Food was plentiful and the Reuben ws one of the best I have eaten. Server was friendly and because my wife is Irish and missed the dance, they gladdly performed an exta dance for her.

The steak I had here was the best I had on the island, the only downside that we had was the surly waitress. We would certainly have gone back to this place but the lack of speech/service from the waitress put us off, in fact my husband left a tip, and on our way out she was speaking to other... More

This is a very good bar and grill with a nice variety on their menu. Be sure to try the onion rings, they are outstanding. They have a nice patio for outdoor seating.

Deceptively small-looking but with very nice, yet secluded, outdoor space, Quinns was a must-try. Being from Alaska I am a fish-and-chips snob, and love the dish. The chips were very good -- typical pub fries, but very good. The deep-fried ono had a too-thick batter which meant either all of the batter would be done, and the fish overdone, or... More

This place is famous for their fish and chips. I know a local and she said that this place had great fish and chips so we went there and tried them. They were okay. The batter was good but they were over cooked. The fish was a little dry. We also got the fish tacos and they were dry too.... More

We discovered this gem too late in our stay! The prices are very reasonable, the food was awesome and the ambiance was friendly and genuine. I had the 'big salad''and boy was it all I needed, very fresh with tons of veggies. The clam chowder was amazing. The jalapeno burger was really good and the portions were very generous for... More
