A bustling restaurant so not suitable if looking for a intimate meal. Very family friendly. Food was average, service was good.

The upstairs bar was fabulous for viewing the harbor and the boats, especially on the beautiful day that we were there. We had pot stickers and a lobster roll, and both were very good. Our waiter could have been friendlier, but I guess you can't have everything! Will definitely go back and try it again on our next visit to... More

Great place for a low key but fun lunch or dinner. Upstairs bar and dining has a great view, and very fun. Downstairs is air conditioned, and a little more quiet. Both have very friendly service, and the food is fabulous. Can get crowded, but worth the wait. Try it off hours if you are not too patient :)

the food is ok here, a decent lobster roll (at least it's not miniscule) but the view is great of the harbor, boats coming and going.

Place was pretty crowded and service was not so fast. I order buffalo wings and fries and local Bad Martha's beer. Beer was best part of it. Fries and wings were okay but nothing special. Price was not high and server was nice but bathroom was not. I would say in all average.

Nice dinner with a super view of the harbor (be sure to sit outside). Excellent lobster roll. Quite the hopping spot, so expect a crowd and noise.

Agree with macinawmegan. Service is very good, food is decent, views are excellent. Lobster special (full lobster, baked potato) was filling, lobster itself was almost flavorless, unless you used liquid butter as dip. My family seemed to like the food. Worth a visit.

The location is nice, but the food was not great. We were there for lunch and order the pasta with shrimp and fried clams. The pesto sauce on the pasta was not very good at all and basically ruined the dish. The service was fine, not unfriendly but not particularly friendly either.

Thank trojankelly
