Came here to eat one day on our fishing trip. Waiter was very friendly. Food was delicious and the beer hit the spot! We also had fried pickles, which were very yummy! We will return.

We stopped here for lunch after taking the ferry; there's a wide choice of beers, and the crab cake sandwich was good. There are choices of inside/outside dining.

Lots of people dine here, so many like it. We had lunch here on a Sunday. Our waitress was grumpy and argued with my wife about something trivial.Our service was very slow. The food we ordered was good. I will probably eat here again.
