Really good seafood, pizza, onion rings. Everything we ordered was pretty good. If you ask for a table by the bar area you can have a nice view of the water too. Our server was great.

Very poor service. We came and they said it would be a 20 min wait. The wait ended up being over 45 mins. Then the waiter failed to take my order correctly and did not bring out the shrimp that I ordered. The food also...More

Great place for football in the bar. Lots of TV's. View of the ocean. Big menu. Plus the lottery and Keno if you are so inclined. There is also a restaurant side, but I've only been to the bar.

Saw some kite surfers and wanted to join them. This place is worth a trip if you are in Boston. The lobster roll was very fresh and with large pieces. Service 10/10.

I don't think so, moves fast. They have an attendant in the parking lot for customers, no beach parking.
Are reservations required?

Not sure if they take reservations. I usually check in at the restaurant. FYI there are 3 wait lists.. Dining room, bar, and outside deck... I usually like the deck and go for a walk on the beach to kill time.

Reserve seats at the bar thirty years of battening most in Nahant and never heard anything so absurd tonight will be my last nite in that place. Pays to be a townie!! George Papagelis
