“Great steak sandwich!!?,”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We found Quinn's in a magazine at our hotel and since it was just a few blocks away we decided to try it. The restaurant is a renovated lighthouse and overlooks a boat dock. Nothing fancy, but very nice. The service was great and my steak sandwich was very good.

“Great evening with family at Quinn's”

Nice restaurant overlooking a marina with seafood, pasta, salads, and burgers. They take reservations, service and food is excellent, and prices are reasonable.

“We enjoyed our lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

They have a very good appetizer of mostly fried fish (very large). Aside from fish, they have a good assortment of chicken dishes, beef and salads. Their burgers are large and quite good. It's a comfortable, friendly restaurant. There's both indoor and outdoor seating. If you're in the area, it's worth a visit.

Comfy place, great for lunch. Nice views of the marina. I have had the soups and salads. Burgers aren't bad either.
