“Local Flavor”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Didn't order any food but was looking for, and found, a nice welcoming local joint just down the street from my hotel (Clarion Inn). As with most pseudo-Irish pubs the barkeep (Janelle) was friendly, the beer cold and the patrons engaged in the latest on their sports teams (Sawx in this case since it was mid-summer). Good conversation with the regulars, the perfect kick back, relaxed and affordable bar/restaurant. The menu looked good, including an old fashioned turkey dinner with potatoes and gravy which I would have tried had I not been in my cocktail hour mood.Good place if you are solo.

Great chowder. Theywerehaving major specials. All appetizers were $6 and dinners/lunch were $11. Decor is outdated and kinda gross but food and service was good. Great place for seniors and kids!

“You Will Be Back”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Once is not enough to go to this user friendly Cape Cod eatery. Great menu,solid drinks,lovely staff,Keno machine,amazing weekday prices and probably the best shrimp cocktail on the Cape.
The "chowdah" is rich and creamy and full of clams,the seafood (fried or broiled) is fresh and the servings are generous.Right near the Bass River Bridge in South Yarmouth on RT.28.

“Avoid this place!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The bar is okay a bit dirty and seedy looking but the food is horrible
I ordered a shrimp cocktail at the bar and the shrimp were frozen still. To make matters worse, they were not fresh - I was sick all night after eating them !!
