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

This is my favorite place to go for lunch. The food is very good which is quite impressive given the size of the kitchen. The beer selection is one of the best in the area. It is not a big place and can get crowded and loud at times (especially when there are live bands). But I defintely recommend stopping... More

Just stopped in with family members to have a beer after a visit to the Whaling Museum and the historic area of downtown New Bedford. What a treat. Lots of craft beers on tap and the friendliest staff anywhere. The waitress and barmaid were a hoot. Great personality, and extremely helpful. We ordered bowls of clam chowder and were AMAZED...
