Had the perch tacos and the wife had some sort of salad and added chicken. Perch tacos were large--two tacos with two pieces of perch each. Could only fit one in each, and enjoyed the other two pieces by themselves. Fresh fish, tomatoes, and lettuce. Simple and good and plenty filling for a big guy. Wife's alas was huge and... More

Stopped here for an early dinner, but a soccer tream was imbibing after a game complete with lots of f-bombs. Felt sorry for the parents with kids. , They also had live music, as do many of the island hangouts, which added to the effort to have any sort of conversation. Food, especially appetizers were enormous, well beyond even a... More

Stopped for dinner and drinks. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food. The perch was outstanding! Don't forget to try the Brandy Alexander after your meal!

Brandy Alexander's & Lobster chowder. Don't need to say more! The service was fast & friendly. The building was built in the 1800's.

It's been a few years since we've been to the island and I was really jonesing for a brandy Alexander. Looking at the menu the prices are a bit high, but we bit the bullet and went in. No the sandwiches do not come with fries. They do come with the various baskets, though. I ordered the perch basket it... More

We stopped in for lunch immediately after leaving the ferry. We wanted to have a quick meal so we could go about our explorations without interruption. The service was quick, the food was excellent (perch and fries), and the waiter did a great job. We were happily fed and ready to continue in less than an half an hour! Just... More

This is a nice, simple, pub like restaurant. Food was good and portion sizes were good. They have a good sized, varied, pub fare type menu. Service was good and prices were average. If anything nothing was bad and nothing stood out as very good either.

My husband and I along with our three kids stopped at The Village Pump for lunch based on the suggestion of a local shop worker. I had the turkey Reuben and it was one of the best I've ever had and other than that their food was quite average. Their kids hot dogs were $2.50 and didn't include a side... More

While visiting Kelley's for two nights, our party of four visited The Village Pump. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing dinner experience, you might want to look elsewhere. However, if you're in the mood for someplace upbeat and fun, this is the place! Great crowd, friendly servers, and just a happy place to soak up the KI atmosphere. Our... More
