I started reading the Yelp reviews as we were sitting there waiting for our server to arrive. ( I know but it was 100 degrees outside and it looked fine)
"Oh great" I said to BF-" maybe we should leave?" He said we're already sitting so lets wait. And wait we did for 10 minutes for the server to come over and ask if we wanted something to drink. He was very frazzled, and I think there were only 2 servers in the restaurant. It's small (no strollers allowed) but they had 2 big parties of 5-10 people.
Bartender looked surly as we walked in - no acknowledgement- woman outside with menus was pleasant (why we went in) and sat us immediately.
We ordered a dozen oysters (from Hyannis) that were good- but not cold enough for me. However, they were $1.50 ea compared to $2+ elsewhere. Then we had bowls of white chowder- pretty good, not the best but certainly not the worst. Then we split a steak tips sandwich. It was actual steak tips, not shaved steak, but there were only a few small steak tips, tons of mushrooms and then oddly a piece of American chees that looked like it had been microwaved on. I was able to pull it off in 1 piece. Blechh.
Server was ok, not the friendliest but not rude. All in all, I would not go back. They need to work on their people skills in the house (although the woman server we saw seemed much more pleasant than our server).
And the food- well any place has oysters and clam chowder, The steak sandwich was overcooked (BTY they do NOT cook any meat anything other than medium to medium well- a concept I call lazy in a actual restaurant that's not a chain) and tasteless. Nest time I will check out Yelp and find a better place.
