Good bar food and sushi with a good view of the outer harbor and ferries. Can be mobbed in peak summer.

Bar type of food. Excellent bar. Delicious sushi. The servers are extremely friendly as are the rest of the customers. In the summer, you may have a wait but it is worth it.

Started with 3 Chowder and a Bisque, all a hit, could have stopped there. I had the grilled tuna sandwich, it was almost too big and cooked perfectly rare, the grilled chicken sandwich and fried fish sandwich were equally as good, each came with homemade chips! Right on the water, even in December a great view and plenty of easy... More

This tavern has a great view of the harbor. Really good specialty cocktails and calamari! Nice way to spend a cold wintry aftenoon with good friends!

Went with a group of 11 friends to watch a Sunday night game. Shawn was a complete jerk. The place was empty except for a small group. The heat was on blast, completely uncomfortable even after we asked for it to be lowered. We had to beg for drinks as the waitresses talked about us. We ended up taking a... More

Stopped in for lunch while in the area. Had a great view from the front part of the restaurant where we ate along the bar area. Food and service were good.

Stopped in for lunch after getting off the ferry. What a fun fund! It was pretty busy for being off-peak season. We had a couple of drinks before lunch- that punch is delicious! Not too sweet. Had a lobster roll with fries and the grilled yellow fun tuna sandwich with chips. Both were fresh and the service was fantastic.

Best clam chowder. Bloody Mary's to die for, with "Mary and the boys" with two huge shrimp. Great food, extensive bar with lots of great drink programs, terrific view of the ocean right in front. I could stay there all day. All the seats are high bar stools, all the plates paper, but food deserving of a great restaurant.
