We got there on an excptionally busy night, so the food took forever, but the servers were pleasant and appologetic. We had nowhere to be, so the sunset view and beers were perfect, Good calamari, fish and chips, clam chowder. Not spectacular food, but good...More

While the view might be great, the food is sub-par at best. What was once one of their great appetizers, amazingly fresh calamari, has turned into old frozen chewy inedible bits. The chowder was gluey, did not taste of clams or bacon and was probably...More

The food was absolutely fantastic! I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was one of the best I've ever had. We also ordered the Spiced Vanilla Creme Brûlée for dessert, and that was excellent as well, though perhaps a little small for the price....More

Right on the harbor. Seals at the window. How can you beat it. Food is good and fresh with good chowder. Well worth it.

I am not an owner or worker of this restaurant but am certain it's still open. I'm sure if you give them a call they'd be happy to tell you when they were established! Enjoy your trip, April should be lovely :)
