We went here after the whale watching cruise. The kids enjoyed going down to check out the lobster tank on the dock. The food was ok, nothing exceptional, but good enough for the price.

We very much enjoyed our visit here. We found the service was friendly and efficient and the food very good quality. My lobster pie was full of big chunks of freshly cooked lobster and my husband's haddock dish was lovely.

This restaurant has a great fun atmosphere, cool decorations (ask about the shovel hanging on the wall by the bar) and the food was pretty darn good too! Fried oysters and Fried scallops were prepared well and served in a timely manner. Reasonably priced.
