At 5PM on a rainy late summer day we arrived to attend a small and informal high school class reunion. The server was slow and inattentive despite eight of us having been seated at a large table near the bar and its wait station. We were never asked if we wished to order appetizers let alone if we wanted another drink. We felt invisible! After an hour or so of indifferent service we decided to forego both appetizers and dinner. The place had all the atmosphere of a long-neglected metro bus station. We liked best that our beers were cold when we got them. We liked least the abysmal service. With so many other dining and drinking options in the Portland area, we'd only return here if we were driving through Falmouth on US 1 or I-295 and needed to make a rest stop.
