    I liked the blackened haddock sandwich with a cup of chowder. Heads up: they charge extra for lettuce, tomato, and onions which I didn't realize until the bill came. Skip the garlic bread.

    Clam chowder was fantastic. My wife's lobster bisque was possibly even better (close call). Had the blackened salmon. 2 cooks. Be patient. Worth the wait. Drink a beer and enjoy! Cheap and great eats!

    No glitz & glamor, but decent food at reasonable prices (which I appreciate in an area that attracts alot of tourists/seasonal visitors). Service was efficient but just OK. Really good clam chowder!!

    My favorite pub-grub on the globe. Lobster roll and burger are great. Halopina poppers need better cheese inside but good. Great beer. Ordered a blueberry ale and the waitress didn't turn up her nose.

    The jalapeno poppers are OK, but not worth $6.25; however, the burger is delicious! Stop in for a bite, its worth it.
