A great place for a leisurely drink. Not big, nice view of the harbour, not noisy with local cider and beer on tap. Just a good place to have a drink, chat or simply take in the view. Relaxing.

1st time going to this local pub which my friend and I happen to stumble upon while out walking looking at the local shops. Called the local pub thats exactly what it is. Its a small run down pub but filled with lots of character. Old tables, beer taps and pictures on the wall. It faces the ocean and even has a pool table in the back room. While we we're there a band was playing some Irish music. Hence for ST. Patty's Day! We met some locals: Cliff, Paul, and Steve friendly guys having an afternoon pint. We indulged in a pint ourselves a pilsner and had a Burt Reynolds shot with the guys. Selena was the young girl behind the bar she was very friendly, personal and gave great service. We stopped by the pub on our way out of town to catch the ferry to have 1 last shot with the locals. Overall cool place and a great spot to meet locals.

Bartender/Server was amazing - she had the best people skills. Good cheap drink specials. Nice view of the water.The locals at the bar provided entertainment listening in to their conversations.

Food service by delivery from other restaurants doesn't start until noon on Saturday. So when they say they have good food it means they have good food delivered if you want. Bar? yes. Good food? can be bought elsewhere. What a strange place indeed.
