Drinks? As good an assortment of beers as anywhere in a 50 mile radius--nice sampler available along with an excellent Beer Bible to facilitate selection. The building is... More

We have eaten at this restaurant twice now and it is a great find! The beer and wine menu is very impresive. The service is great also but the star is the food! Fresh and beautifully made from their burgers to also Vicki. Seafood is nice & fresh. Definitely worth a visit

The seafood here was as good as any coastal restaurant. Loved the historical ambience. Nice wine list. Waiter was a bit inattentive but the restaurant was crowded so I'll give him a pass.

This place is worth the drive from York. Interesting selection of beers and the cheese fries are THE BEST! The staff are always friendly.
