“Visited twice, not again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

This will be short and to the point, not only did the chef burn the top of the haddock to a crisp, but then the waitress put 3 plates of it in front of 5 five of us. My pasta was dried and had been sitting too long.
This is a place where boaters and tourists can get food and say, well we don't have to go back again. Every year we hope for better food, and we are still waiting.

“Awful!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

This used to be one of our favorite places to come by boat. Gorgeous view and a nice bar with a good selection of beer on draft and wines but the service in the dining room was terrible and the food was worse. The place was not crowded but we waited for a waitress for 15 minutes after being seated. My fried clams were just a glob dripping fat and Angela's fried fish was similar. Everything was loaded with cilantro even the cole slaw. Stay away! The pits! Awful!..

“A great place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

This is a surprisingly large restaurant off the beaten path in Georgetown. It was very busy the night we were there, but they have a whole army of energetic college kids working for them and they were all pretty awesome. The menu is fairly large with lots of choices and a lot of selections for kids. Our food was hot, quick and very good. I would go there agan. It is a pretty good value in addition. It is not a fancy place, so don't worry about dressing up before you go. If you are looking for a fancy place, this isn't it. Casually comfortable.

“View to rave about”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

But the food this year, not so much. Seems they have a new chef who has limited the menu- not willing to budge on providing blackened fish in taco instead of fried. Is it really so hard to prepare that? We've asked, friends have asked, forget about it. The beloved pasta dish of last year is gone as well. It was a vegetarian delight and I used to order it most every time. I do believe the building itself needs extreme help. I no longer feel safe being on the inside porch, or walking up the outside stairs either. A guide I use for cleanliness of restaurants is the public restroom. I really should NOT be eating there!

“Great Restaurant to Arrive by Boat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

Docking space may be difficult, depending on the day of the week and time of day but we've had pretty good luck finding a spot with the help of a Robinhood Marina steward (you can hail them over the marine radio and request docking assistance before you arrive). The food is always superb here. Service may be slow at times but this is a place where you should relax, enjoy the view, and catch up with old friends or new ones. Excellent pub food and salads are offered, as well as an excellent chowder. This is a great place to visit by land or sea - we can get here on our boat much faster than if we drove (from BHYC).
