We visited on a quiet Wednesday evening in October. The restaurant had a small clientele for the size of the place. This was second choice because the seafood restaurant across the drawbridge on the other side was full and had a 50 minute wait at 6pm. Service was prompt and the food was ordinary 'pub' food. But, you have to like fish! The restaurant has a very strong smell of shell-fish that is obvious as you walk in the door. Some people aren't too keen on fishy aromas. I'll bet they turn around and walk right out again.

The live entertainment had little talent and played too loudly. The place was generally too loud. It is dark and the tables are crammed together. The food and service were average.

My friends and i went to this restaurant and our waitress, Karen or Kelly, was horrible. She had a bad attitude and she thought she was doing us a favor eating there! We were spending good money there to be treated like that! I won't be back!

Quite interesting atmosphere all be it very dark! Live music was good. The food was a very long time in coming and when it finally came mu baked potato was only half cooked and the fries that my husband ordered were nearly black ! Quite expensive for mediocrity!
