“Maddie's the Bar, Topside the Restaurant”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

Some reviews of this spot seem to have confused the two different food and drink options in this building. Downstairs is Maddie's Sail Loft, where the "crowd of yahoos" hang out, and upstairs is Topside, where you can get a decent meal or sit in the pub. Maddie's is a dive-y bar that attracts locals all year-round and tons of sailors during the season. The beers are cheap, the crowd is young, and order food downstairs at your own risk! Upstairs dining room and the pub are full of year-rounders having a drink at the bar or ordering a solid meal. Seafood is decent, and the menu probably has something for everyone. This restaurant attracts an older crowd of locals and plenty of families when parents are looking for a glass of wine and kids need a nacho fix. Reliable food, pleasant atmosphere, and "just fine" service.

“Food is Terrible!”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

First of all the place caters to a young drunk crowd of yahoos!! Don't make the mistake of eating there it is horrible!! I bit into the steak sandwich and the whole piece came flying out of the sandwich as I bit down because it was a solid piece of fat in the middle of the of steak!! The kind of fat that you cannot chew, like rubber!!! It was disgusting! Food was good many many years ago, but not the case anymore!! Disappointment!!

“Fine dinner”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

Dinner was very good. The only hitch was we were the only people in the dining room and dinner came out before we could finish our chowder.

“Great place to catch a game”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Great place to mix in with the locals and catch a game on TV. Bartender was beautiful and she could pour a good pint of Guiness
