My wife ordered the Watermelon salad with Shrimp, it was very good & generous. My son & I had the fish & chips, fish was good size, lightly battered & great flavor. Homemade coleslaw also good. Large beer selection. Would return again.

Loved the atmosphere, especially sitting outside on 4th of July weekend. The best stuffed quahogs I've ever tasted. Nice menu, great choices. A definite place to return to.

Relaxing lunch over Memoria Day weekend with comfortable spot on the second floorn balcony that could accommodate our group of nine. Friendly service and food was fine. Right in quaint area of Bristol.
