In the heart of the whaling district in historic, downtown New Bedford, we had lunch on a Friday at this great old sports bar. While some of the décor such as original wood paneling, was retained, the restaurant was completely updated with many flat screen TVs and a great bar. Still , walking into the stark, stone building that is... More

While driving back from vacation on Nantucket, my husband and I decided to Google restaurants in New Bedford as we were driving by-needless to say we were quite pleased with our experience here! The buffaque wings were something I had never had anywhere else (regular buffalo were good as well), and the onion rings were to die for. The server... More

After having a so-so experience my first time in, I was fortunate to experience a 360 degree turn on my second. Friendly, attentive staff, prompt service, meal was prepared and served quick and delicious! I tried the "rose-ambique" and loved it. Great job this time! I'll be back.

New Bedford is going through an exciting revival, especially in its historic downtown district. This vibrant little pub is on one of those charming, narrow streets near the Whaling Museum and several art galleries. Be prepared for the volume to be LOUD -- this is no place for dinner with the cherubs or popping the question to your honey. But... More

I finally got an order placed and he again was downstairs. Food was great---although for the amount of people it took an excessive long time to receive. Had to as a waitress to print my... More
