Local pub with big screen TV's as a plus. We went on a Monday evening and it was pizza night. So we ordered one of their specials and it came hot and delicious. The Kayo burger was huge and delicious with a side of great tasting fries. Since 2 of our party were die hard Red Sox fans the owner... More

7 of us ate there last week, the restaurant was clean, the service was fast and friendly and the menu was plentiful for both adults and kids. It is a combo restaurant with a pub style on one side, table settings in the mid area and came room on the right. Our party consisted of 4 adults, 3 children ages... More

This is a local pub restaurant. The kids enjoy playing pool and using arcade/video games. Excellent hamburgers and other pub food. Enjoyable place, plan ahead because it can get busy.

Each of us had bison burgers and hot wings. The wings are not actually hot, but tasty anyway. Burger buns were like a real baked good, not a cheap roll, decent sized Bison burger. As to the fries, not so much, they were the frozen pre-cooked and then re-fried type, not as fan of these. Felt bad for the server,... More

A friendly tavern with a full menu. Food is prepared fresh and there's always a daily special. A favorite of locals for good reason.

We didn't know where to go for dinner last Friday night and happened to find this restaurant. What a great find! The food was fantastic. I had the crabcakes. The waitress was very attentive without interrupting which is something I really appreciate. We had the table in the bar area that is overlooking the lake. I would say great atmosphere!... More

We went for take-out dinner - fish and chips were good and fairly priced. Haddock dinner not so much - the sides out-portioned the fish, everythng was drowned in a dill sauce and way overpriced for what you got. We paid before our meals arrived and the hostess assumed she was keeping the $6 difference between the bill and the... More

The food tasted good, but our waitress wasn't very friendly. Several seats had food on them and needed to be cleaned again. The menu was pretty limited, not much more than salads, wraps and sandwiches.

Thank Skippermark
