When you see the tugboat on land you have to go in and eat. I had a Tugboat burger that was good but it fell apart as I was eating it because it was so slippery (greasy ?) My wife had a Haddock sandwich that she said was very good. We shared a salad that was great. For the two of us the bill was only $32.00. Our server was wonderful. Before you leave make sure you check out the pilot house.

We went for lunch on a Friday afternoon. Service was good. They had a Reuben sandwich special which was awesome. It was nice and cool inside, which was refreshing after walking around in the heat. Parking could be tough if your not lucky. Prices were reasonable. Would go back.

We were pleasantly surprised at how good the service and food were during our visit to this restaurant. To be honest, we never went here because it was an older place that had a so-so reputation. We really enjoyed the Monhegan Haddock. It was fresh, and the side dishes were excellent.
The service was very efficient and we were met warmly by the hostess upon our arrival.
Glad to have "discovered" this restaurant after many years of visiting BBH.

We had a nice super on the deck. The view was very limited for being water front. We got average service and felt forgotten at times. The food was okay, but felt very distributed like a Cisco made everything. Prime Rib was very good, but at 5 pm may were drunk in the downstairs bar and they didn't have a kids cup. The kids menue was very good and the pizza great enough for us to eat.

First we were one of three tables. We ordered the whole steamed lobsters. My salad was bitter and very little dressing. Lobster and my mashed potatoes were cold. Service was ok but they were very busy talking to each other. Would not go back again.
