“Great Food! Try the seafood chowder.”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table but it was worth the wait. We had a seat on the back deck without much of a view. The beer is good and the food menu was unique. The kids menu was good and came with a brownie for dessert. My husband had an excellent pasta dish but I had the best meal by far - seafood chowder. Don't miss the seafood chowder!

“Great setting and good food and drink”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Our hosts at Heritage Harbour House Inn suggested this place, and it was a good call. Local brewery in an historic old building. We enjoyed sitting outside on the street cafe portion. My fish and chips were very good, and the local brewed beer was quite tasty, even for a guy who doesn't particularly like beer. But, when in Rome do as the Romans.

“Good food and beer!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We ate here and tried their beer flight. We liked some of the beers, not all, but that's typical of anywhere. The beer flight was generous - 11 samples! We split an appetizer of potato slices covered in cheese, bacon, and chives with jalapeno dipping sauce and sour cream. We had a lobster club sandwich (unique, good) and a Greek salad (very good). Service was fine. It looked busy, but we didn't have to wait to be seated. Nice atmosphere, too! It was $80 for two people, so a little pricey.

“Very busy place”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Went there for a beer and appetizer. I was told this was the place to go for beer and good food from residence in the area. Everyone told us to try the Gahan Blueberry Ale beer.. Being a hugh beer fan, I must say this was on of the best beers I have had in a long time. A must try beer. The appetizers were good and average compaired to any appetizers out there. The Halibut Taco were amazing to where the shrimp bites were a little over cooked and greasy. Would not recommend the shrimp bites. Overall a must try place for a pint of beer.

“Good beer, good food”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

Some of the best beer I've ever had. Try them all, you won't be disappointed.

Food was great. Try the seafood chowder worth the calories!). Mussels came out cold but were taken back and removed from the bill, no questions asked.
