“Worst restaurant food I have had in years”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is my first negative review. I am an easy customer...however , the food I chose at this restaurant was a mistake. For $18 I ordered the crab cakes. The crab cakes (2) came to the table a gray-green color and once I tasted them...it was obvious that they were made of a pancake or bisquick mix with some old bay and maybe some powdered rosemary and lots of it....however I couldn't find any crab meat!. The vegetable medley is the exact medley I buy from GFS. Very disappointing. The beer was good! But a previous post brags about 99cent beers....only Rolling Rock is 99cents. We were in the area for 8 days and ate a several amazing restaurants, this one was not one of them. The deck view is beautiful.....but the kitchen needs a visit from Kitchen Impossible!

“Newly reopened Gracie O'Malley's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Gracie's has been closed for the last two years when we were here. Nice to see it open again-great setting, wonderful view of the bay. Good food with nice atmosphere and reasonably priced. It has a ramp and elevator so it is accessible to everyone.

“Jury still out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

New ownership and maybe still trying to develop consistancy. In 2 visits the service and drinks were inconsistant. The menu has a nice variety however the dishes were just ok. Nothing special. Can't beat the atmosphere and view.

“Best outdoor seating in the area!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

The food at Gracie's is good but the view from the back deck is fabulous. It's a new version of the restaurant that's been trying to make a go of it for a couple of years at least. The service is getting better, I think some of the servers just need more experience. The sandwiches are very good as long as they don't turn soggy. Happy hour is reasonably priced. The interior is very nice and rustic. I would recommend to anyone staying in the area.

“Great service..Love the fried cod. Reminds me of New England.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Been here several times and the service has been consistently very good..All are meals have matched or exceeded our expectations and you can't beat the $0.99 draft Rolling Rock. Reminds me of my days in New England with the model ships and other seafaring oddities. The fried cod is excellent. Going to their brunch on the deck today. Can't wait, to see the view off the back deck.
