Not a dive bar. Solid menu, well prepped food, good service, and decent prices. Comfortable and casual.

The Mahi tacos were very good and they have the best French fries around. We had the Crest Eclipse - moonshine with lemonade in a sugar dimmed mason jar. We will definitely go back.

It's a short walk from the ocean to our little gem. We can always have a drink and good food all year round. I love the shrimp crest tavern on Italian roll.All the bar food is very good and the daily specials are what us regulars look forward to. Lisa makes all feel like family.

We returned after a few year hiatus to the Tavern, and I am glad we did. First weekend of fall and I welcomed it with a pumpkin ale. Never had it before but refreshing and perfect for the season.

Just wanted a quick lunch and some drinks. Service was good as well as the food. We were there about lunch time so the place was quite full. We were served quickly and courteously
