Restaurant details
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Placed under a leaky ceiling and had to move ourselves. No apologies. Had an extended wait to place order despite restaurant being almost empty (should have heeded this warning sign). When ordering the haddock platter we were asked to spell 'haddock'! Food took over one hour to arrive and arrived over a 15 minute period. During server the server did not visit the table despite temperature being 90+ degrees. Food mediocre, kids fish dry and overcooked. Crab cakes were burnt. Spend your holiday dollars in a place that will appreciate you.

Needs guidance in the customer service department! Food was fair, but the wait staff needs training and supervision!

Stopped in after a day on the beach. Entered front door, asked hostess for seat outside. (Wasn't crowded). She said she wasn't sure if we could sit outside but would check. Came back and said it was ok. Went to bathroom to wash, and it was a complete dirty pit.

Found family outside, say and waited 10 mins., no staff attended to us, though many standing around.

Got up and left, drove 10 mins north to Moby Dicks and had a great meal!

Stopped here for an early lunch since we still had a few hours before we could check into our bnb. There was literally like 3 tables in the entire place and the service was slow. The inside smelled like attic so I opted to sit outside. Outside wasn't much better. We sat at old, dirty plastic tables. I was turned off even more when we were served with plastic cups and paper plates. The food was pretty good but the whole atmosphere was a turn off. I don't think we'll be back.
