Just had dinner with a group of 14 on a slow night. Poor waitress was lost in the first 10 minutes. It took 30 minutes for the first round of drinks to show up including water. Orders came out wrong and food was nothing you...More

Stopped in early on a Friday evening before the crowd arrived and oysters were already not available. Went with the shrimp cocktail, which was served in a plate of ice water. I would have preferred them patted dry and served over ice in a dish,...More

Great food and reasonable prices, nice back deck overlooking harbor to eat on. Would have liked a heater nearby though as it was a bit chilly.

Our hotel was across the street and we ate here twice during our stay. Both lunches and dinners we're good. They have a bar so one night after touring all day we stopped in for a nightcap. Good food and service.

This restaurant was convenient to our hotel and the food was pretty good, but what stood out for us was our very nice waitress. I would go there again.

We all had lobster, 2 lobster rolls and 1 steamed. It was excellent! Generous cocktails, friendly and prompt service. Probably the best restaurant in town with a nice waterfront view of the fishing boats.

We were so happy to find a local place with Easter Brunch. Menu sounded good and it's on the water. We were disappointed though. Very unprofessional, no one at the omelet station. The buffet set up was dirty, food all over and many food warmers...More

A little disappointed. The waffle and omelet stations had no one manning them, there was food spilled on the floor everywhere and the coffee mugs were too tall to fit beneath the coffee urns so they could not be completely filled. It's the details folks...More

Well , I don't have the prices memorized but I think you might pay a dollar or two over what you would pay at a sports bar type of place. I am sure you know that a Fishermans Platter is just about the highest priced seafood... More
