We visited this as part of our special night that we do each trip. Last year we were told it was noisy, and it was, but since our other choices seem to have less favorable reviews this year, we went here. We were there about 5:30 PM on a Monday night, Happy Hour was going full swing. The hostess was very friendly and seated us as requested, a bit (not that there was much of a choice) away from the main noise. Our waitress (actually had three different people, but she was the main one) was very friendly and explained about the items we had questions on.
Looking at the place, there is a bar facing the harbor that takes up 75% of the wall, with booths on the far end (a long and narrow place). We were offered outdoor dining, but decide to stay warm. Not the most esthetic place, but I guess it could be termed rustic and the dress is casual. But since we went for the food, that is what I remember the best.
We shared a bowel of Clam Chowder ($6.95) that was very good and worth the price, I think that I have had better - when I use to dive for the clams and make my own, but this was close.
The Sourdough Bread was tasty (I like bread) and the butter was fresh tasting. They kept asking us if we wanted more, but I had to turn down thirds because I would be too full (sob!) to eat the main meal.
My wife settled on the Fish and Chips ($10.25), three nice size pieces of fish that she liked and said were crispy on the outside and moist and tender without being greasy on the inside, the fries (not true English 'chips') were better than average, and she liked the Coleslaw (which she does not usually like).
I had the Sea Food Pasta ($17.95) and chose the salad and rice pilaf for sides. The salad appeared to be fresh and nicely balanced with lettuce/greens and other items and they brought the oil and vinegar containers out, the vinegar looked and tasted like real balsamic. The pasta was nicely loaded with shrimp and scallops but only tasted good, not outstanding. The rice pilaf was very ho hum.
Looking at other items coming out of the kitchen, if we go again next year I think I will get one of the solid fish dinners, they looked very appetizing.
In summary, very noisy during happy hour (from 5 to 7 PM as I recall), music was recorded 60's and 70's 'easy' rock and roll music (not the drug stuff), friendly attentive staff, good to great food. It is on the second floor and we did not see an elevator, the entrance looks like the back door but it opened on the hostess station so I guess we were in the right place.
