We went at lunchtime and had a nice time. The bartender was friendly and welcoming. I had a great pina colada. Went back at night to see the band, but the band cancelled, so we were disappointed. My meatloaf dinner was yummy.

This is a very nice place with good food and excellent service. Music also at certain times. Try the crab stack or lobster stack depending on the season.

The bartender Darryl was great, the beer was cold, and the menu looked like normal bar food. We visited before lunch so there was hardly anyone there.
