Been there twice & it's ok,, meals weren't great,,, more of a Bar - don't go for a good meal. Probably better for bar & bar food. Chowder was good on the first visit. Service was only ok

Be awhile, TO LONG, since we`ve been here. Forgot how good this place is. The seafood chowder as an opener, only begins a great meal. Desi only seems to improve this tavern. No wonder a reservation is for the most part, needed.

Enjoyed a great dinner after a long drive from NY. The seafood chowder was filled with fish and lobster, the service was friendly and attentive, and the drinks were generous. The tavern was comfortable and the food came out at a good pace.

The Ruben sandwich was huge and yummy but the lobster grilled cheese was AMAZING!!!! The fish chowder was loaded with seafood too. The Buffalo wing mac n cheese was nice and spicy. The service was great and it was kid friendly.

I have been here several times. The service is excellent. My favorite is eating upstairs. Very clean and the food is always good. I have never had a bad meal here.

We sat at the bar since there was a wait for a table which was no problem at all. Our server bartender was great and efficient. I ordered a lobster roll and Pomegranate lemonade martinis both were so good. This was the best lobster roll...More

although I love this place, I found the lobster dinner a rip off. I got a tiny lobster with little meat for a horrible price, My wife got a sandwich and two kids meals 80 dollars. Go somewhere else for lobster.
