It did pay off. The food was excellent and the service even better. They have hired some teenagers that are very attentive and super friendly. Not that the other staff are not friendly, but they were always so busy, I'm glad they chose the right people for the job. Everything was good and I even try the chicken pecan roll... More

We vouched to leave the touristy hustle of Newburyport and go beyond to a hidden gem! Lots of locals and the food was fabulous! My grilled Mahi Mahi tacos were amazing-I chose to have both the pineapple jalapeño salsa and the cilantro sour cream!!! My daughter had a great BYO burger which she thoroughly enjoyed! I vouched for the hand... More

Good food, especially the burgers and pizzas, along with my favorite Cesar salad. But the humans are the draw. Sunday afternoons 4-7 feature a jumpin collection of souls dancing to live music of local bands. The bar is long and busy, lined with an exceptionally diverse group of patrons, all digging the groove and dancing wherever they can. The staff... More

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch last weekend with my wife. Had both the pesto and coconut shrimp. Both were hot and very tasty. My wife had the salmon tacos which she said were very good and I had a burger and fries. Everything was hot and cooked as asked. The cocktails were very good too!! Plan to go back again soon.

Hubby and I had a coupon for two meals here, and since we were in the area, decided to stop in for a late lunch. It was quiet mid-afternoon, but our waitress was delightful and most helpful. After giving the menu a quick look we opted for fish and chips with coleslaw and were not disappointed. The "chips" were especially... More

Earlier this year they had baked stuffed lobster which was the best we have ever had. They also have excellent fish such as fish and chips and very good veal parmigiana and very good eggplant parmigiana.
