Food was good. Waitstaff was helpful with questions asked. Parking can get very tight. Will be back!

Location half way up the hill with harbor views and good food. We had the lazy mans lobster (they do all the work and you enjoy a plate of lobster meat). Wonderful.

Lookout is a friendly place with reasonable drink prices and decent menu Bartenders and wait staff are friendly and nice. I go there whenever I can for the camaraderie and outdoor seating. It can get quite Hot outside during the summer. Find a table with an umbrella or stay inside

Nice little place. Had the fish'n chips and it was very good. Service was a bit slow but the place was packed on a Monday night. I always try to find places where the locals go. It's usually a good sign of what to expect. Really loved the place. Will stop again.

Love this place even though it is mega noisy and crowded after work hours. Food is wonderful-great chowder and burgers. Seafood is also good. Staff busy but they do a great job in keeping everyone happy. Lunch pretty calm. Food is good and consistent. Glad to keep going back.

I have eaten here regularly over he last six years. In fact, the name of this restauant is now the Front Street Grill and Bar. Every meal I have had here has been well prepared and reasonably priced. The menu has recently expanded and it remains a good spot for an informal meal.

Let's see, renovations were ugly, the music was an all Jimmy Buffett station, and the bathroom was filthy at 4:30 in the afternoon. And no happy hour prices were given. There's no reason to go here instead of 3 Tides or Rollie's.

We are two women of a certain age (over 50!) and we were delighted with the quality and the service. We would not normally go into a place that is definitely a local bar. There is only one bar tender/waitres and she works the room like a dynamo. We shared an order of sweet potato fries as an appitizer, and... More
