We stopped there "by accident" ... because of our dog. This restaurant is pet friendly and we would like to find a place where we could eat with her.
It was a good surprised.
Outdoor tables were nice located.
Food was very good and fresh; staff very friendly and helpful.

We stopped there because you can eat on patio over the water. The view was ok, not the greatest. I thought there prices were high. We had a fish sandwich which was very good with fries. Going there with children it will be expensive.

The outdoor bar at this restaurant is just so much fun. We always stop here for a pound or two of their steamers. The freshest around. Pat and Sean are great bartenders; Very friendly and welcoming.

An hour & a half wait may not seem like good fortune - but on July fourth when you end up with a seat on the upper deck for an unbeatable view of a FABULOUS fireworks show you tend to be happy with the outcome. The scallop basket and the fish-n-chips were, of course, as yummy as expected.

I looked forward to trying this place out, but after our recent visit I won't be going back. First we waited in line to out our name in, we assumed a wait, but the weird thing was they were not exactly taking names but rather having people wait in line for over 20 minutes to be seated "immediately". It's not immediate seating if your waiting like that...so good try on their part rather than saying it will be 20-30 minutes.

Then it took about 30 minutes to get water and to order, I don't want to blame the waitress but it's a little her fault if you cant at least get water and say you will be back and apologize for taking so long.

But the biggest let down was the food. If the food was good I would have been OK with the place and maybe given it another try, I had mussels, actually cold mussels. One of the other people (we were a party of 6) had a seafood platter that was supposed to have shrimp, scallops, and a bunch of other items. The shrimp were less than 1/2" long, and he only got 2 scallops. We ordered drinks and we actually had trouble telling 3 of them apart, they all tasted like lemonade, only one even had lemonade in them....

So, unfortunately I cannot rightfully recommend this place. For the short window of opportunity they seem to have for tourists I would hope they get their game back together and try to make it worth it.
