Great location on the water in or out dining. Wait staff very pleasant. The food was generously sized but not too good. Clam chowder was bland and kinda runny and entrees were just mediocre. One pasta dish was pretty unbearable. Better places to be found.

Didn't have too long of a wait, which is good, got an outside table, which is good, and waiter was good. I would never sit inside as noise is unbearable, a little better outside, the food was a huge disappointment, frozen shrimp, the stuffing was bland, manhattan cc mostly ketchup. Best thing was the croutons. Had been there a few... More

We celebrated my parents anniversary dinner last night at this restaurant. Overall it was good. The lobster was good but the steak was very dry. The staff was very nice and the appetizers were all excellent.

Haven't been here in at least 20 years but it was just like we remembered. The corn fritters and cheese bread to start are fantastic; the New England clam chowder and lobster bisque were just the right consistency and chock full of seafood. Sit outside if you can--the patio is covered and there are nice breezes. So glad we came... More

This restaurant is on the water with a nice view of the harbor. The outside area was very pleasent to sit on and most tables have good views of the water. It was quite pleasant outside even though the weather was quite hot. The salad was served by a young ladie with a movable trolley and corn fritters were a... More

The meals meh! I got the linguine... More

Delicious, authentic seafood. Beautiful waterside dining and fun Outside Patio with live music. The corn fritters are incredible- but be careful, I ate too many and got too full! Amazing early bird special deal too with so much food!

The outside "Patio Bar" is the spot to enjoy beautiful views of the inlet with a cold drink in hand, a bite to eat and kick back and listen to some great live music. It's a beach town so weekends in the summer are pretty packed, I suggest visiting on a weekday, still fun but a little more "room"
