About
Fresh seafood, all natural beef and local produce, home made sumptuous desserts and 36 Craft Beers on tap are all available to you while overlooking the picturesque historic York River. Conveniently located on Rt. 1 in York, just 2 miles north of the Kittery Outlets. Visit our Ice Cream Shack right next door, serving the largest "small" cone around. Enjoy several of over 30 flavors and SO many toppings, it will be hard to decide.

Great restaurant on the York River. Outdoor seating if you want. The inside is rustic with a nice bar area. The service was great! The food was as good. Had the trio of fish tacos which were delicious. Others had wraps which they enjoyed.
