Great food, music, service, and atmosphere. Had the sports bar feel without all the hype. The menu was a little small and didn't match the one online, but overall great food!

Freshest fish and tasty menu selections. The family owns Fishermans Direct across the way. They also serve local beers and wines.

Wonderful food from an eclectic menu. Interesting parings make for some great creations. Home made tomato soup was very good. The Big Cheese was fantastic as were the Wasabi Fish Tacos. Our family each got something different and we traded tastes across the table. Good service too. Definitely worth the visit - we will go back whenever we are in... More

When we pulled into this small spot (that also has a drive thru) and I saw their large sign featuring a crab playing a banjo I had to laugh -- but once inside the staff is so friendly and the food so good I could hardly laugh as I could not stop eating! The Fish and Chips is amazing and... More

This is going to be a very limited review. I've only had their fish and chips (several times!) and it is awesome. Get the larger order and it is more than enough for 2 people.The fish is fresh, breading light and cooked to perfection.

We went there without reservations pretty close to their closing time but were able to get a seat and food. The food is pretty good (not excellent) and for a reasonable price. They also offer beers from a local brewery that is very good.

This was a cute little spot with delightful staff. Very laid back. The waiter was helpful in identifying that their beef was local. The burger was quite good. My husband said his fri d fish was also very nice. Also local microbrew available here.

We came to this local bistro on the recommendation of friends and had a gift card to use. Small with seating for no more than 30 plus a patio. Local seafare as well as big burgers. They feature Arch Rock beers. Items tonight included shrimp tacos, crab cakes, mussels and cheeseburger. We will return.

All the food on their menu is great and cooked well every time we have eaten here. The service is fast and friendly. Would always recommend to anyone looking for... More
