“mediocre food.......slow service”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

Perfect example of a restaurant that rests on it's laurels and rely's on it's "regulars". Service tonight slow and very impersonal. While clearly understaffed, still no reason to not offer to refill drinks, check in to see if everything is "OK", etc. No apps, no dessert, and nearly 2 hours from start to finish. food was mediocre...clams were more "pieces" vs. full clams. plate looked akin to a glass servingplatter from the '70s then a plate at a restaurant ! Far better restaurants in Yarmouth who will work for your business.........Changes needed here to attract and retain new clientelle......

“I heard it was dirty”
Reviewed July 26, 2009

The food is just regular...nothing special at all.
The view compensates for the chilly service if you can get a seat near the window. Once the online restaurant food inspections came out I didn't return!

“stick with the seafood”
Reviewed July 20, 2009

The fish was great, the chicken was awful. Nice deck for outside dining overlooking the Ferry dock. Located in the downtown area.
