They won’t even let you sit with a drink for 30 minutes without hassling you to move! Especially if you don’t want to sit in the sun! The most unfriendly bar I have ever been to!

We love stopping here for seafood, drinks and the lively atmosphere. Service is great...everyone seems to be in their “happy place”. The food is terrific! Our Edgartown oysters were incredible and the lobster rolls were enormous. We look forward to a return visit...😀

I did not eat here but we had planned to for lunch. We arrived to the fact that they have no high chairs. It is quite a casual restaurant so in my mind this equates to not wanting small children here. I think they should...More

Great service, fresh seafood and the best Bloody Mary on the island...all with a view. This restaurant is always crowded. Fun bar to have a drink while you wait for your table...or you can even sit by the rail.

No we do not take reservations. You can download the No Wait app and put your name in for a table . This app is not a reservation app it just helps you see how long of a wait it is .
