“A little tired and moderately friendly”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Due to the waterfront location we've given Toby's several tries but in the end it just really isn't all that good. Food is okay. Someday's the service is okay and on other days...really not good. That said, it's a tavern with tavern food and tavern help. What should we expect?

Once had a problem with the help being horrible and the owner was quite responsive and courteous in rectifying the bad experience. As a result of that experience we tried several more times but again the bottom line is that Toby's is average at best.

“A very interesting place to dine.”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This bar/restaurant is crowded with unique items that line the tops of the walls and give you a lot to look at while waiting for your food.

The food is quite good and the wait staff appears like they have worked there a long time. Food comes fairly fast even when it is crowded and it always seems to be crowded. You are right on the water so there is a view outside as well.

This place has a lot of character which you will not find in chain restaurants so that makes it even better. I like Toby's.

“For locals probably - onion rings and mussels were very good”
Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

We will go back, wine portions were very good, we had a good anchorage for our boat, and got a pound of mussels for $12 and that won't last....

Toby's is a bar,not a restaurant! No one under 21 is allowed in! So for a bar Toby's is great. Beer and food are both good.
