The bar has a great selection of seafood, a great view of the salt marsh where you're likely to see people digging for shellfish at low tide and/or paddleboarding, and a decent selection of draft beers and wines, along with a full bar. Try their bloody mary with a truly jumbo shrimp garnish! Why wait 2 hrs. or more more... More

My daughter and bf took me for my birthday dinner. The food was good but overly expensive for what was given and the service was awful. The server never checked with us to see how everything was and the table who arrived after us received bread and cocktails before she even took our cocktail order. As far as the bread... More

This restaurant was very average to say the least. Our waitress was obviously overworked and service was VERY SLOW!! I wouldn't recommend it.

We were here for a family lunch. We were seated outdoors and it was great! We really liked the menu and ordered a stuffie, a corned beef reuben, a crab roll, and a kids meal amoung other things. The food was really good, but the service was very slow - seemed like it took forever for our lunch to arrive,... More

Nice bar crowd. Tasty clam and crab rolls that were reasonably priced and a good-sized portion. I accidently dropped my hotel key and they returned it to the inn

This is an average local restaurant. Nice views of salt marsh and very nice attentive waiter/waitress staff. Food was prepared in an average way. Served well. A standard that has kept it there for a long time.

We got there and immediately were given a table on the outside deck... it was 5pm. We were quickly served some warm bread and butter and our drink and dinner order taken. Our drinks came back very quickly and we enjoyed them while we talked with friends visiting us from Florida. Our server came by several times to see how... More

Close to a sandy beach, this is a good place to come after working up an appetite. If you're not hungry, you'll certainly be taking home a doggie bag due to the American sized portions. To start with we got Rhode Island chowder, which was extremely good and very traditional, I was assured by my dining partner, unlike many of... More
