Nice atmosphere and friendly staff in this cosy restaurant. Service is a bit slow. The food is average.

“Local color”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

A group of 7, which is large for lunch, stopped for a quick bite, hoping for some air conditioning. Alas, not air conditioned, but cooler than outside.
Mixed reviews on the food, the burgers were adequate, and cooked to request, fish sandwich special rated well. Biggest problem was what appeared to be one server, who did a great job trying to wait on too many tables. Guacamole was disappointing, and given the mexican food theme unfortunate. The heaping nacho plate designed to impress, but way too much food and to hard to excavate. Very mixed review, but waitress was super and had our requested separate checks ready on our limited time schedule.

“Good food and good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This tavern was recommended by some of the staff at our hotel, and since it was within walking distance, we tried it. The menu was mostly Mexican, but the four of us had fish and chips (excellent), a lobster roll (excellent) and a grilled chicken salad (good but boring; not my order). Service was a little slow, but wee were in no hurry. Prices were reasonable.

“Good Sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

If you want a good sandwich and a beer, this is a pretty good pub.
Good Atmosphere. No handicapped bathrooms though.
