“Best of What's around it...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

The choices are limited within walking distance of the local marina and hotels so you will end up here.
Selection is good but the food is disappointing. As a sports bar the decor is nice and locals seem to frequent the bar more than the restaurant. Service is consistently friendly. We're boaters who have to walk so we'll be back :)

“Looks and reviews can be deceiving”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Nice looking sports bar with high ceilings and an abundance of TV's (including mini TV's at some of the tables and booths). We came here because of the good reviews. The service was slow at lunch time with very few people in the place (about 30 minutes to get served a vegetable panini and Reuben sandwich. The food was disappointing, the Vegetable panini had very little filling of vegetables, just a very thin slice of tomato, mushroom, spinach, and zucchini, there was so little filling that my wife opened it to see if there was anything in it. The Reuben had very little corned beef, and the corned beef was flavorless, rubbery, with couple of pieces of gristle, very little cheese, which was rubbery and flavorless, there was plenty of sauerkraut to make the sandwich look substantial. The french fries were the battered type, which are cheaper to buy that real potato french fries, and they are flavorless and mushy in the center. Probably won't go back.

“Never had a bad meal here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

The food is always good. Portions are average. This place has a wonderful, laid-back atmosphere. It is casual and classy. There are many business men in suits there for lunch. In the summer, they have tables and propane fire pits outside on the deck. In the winter, they have two gas fireplaces roaring inside. The décor is pleasant.

“Sports bar with great food, beer and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

The food here is great; the servers are highly knowledgeable about gluten free and they carry several gluten free beers and cider. There's a flat screen t.v. at every table and several larger flat screen around the bar showing numerous sporting events via satellite. We've been coming here for years and it's a local favorite.
