Lovely spot, great food and a good atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this place for food or just for a stop off at the bar.

Really nice pub type atmosphere. Late in the year so we got a seat right away but imagine a couple weeks back it was probably really jammed up. Came here with the full intention of getting fried seafood and I was not disappointed - great fish and chips - but there were a lot of other non seafood selections. I... More

Noisy, crowded, lively bar, great food no reservations, wait time only ten minutes. Enough time to take in the ambiance and enjoy a perfectly poured Guinness at the bar. Dining with friends who live in Cape Cod this was a great introduction to life of the locals. Loud conversations drowned out the music playing. We had a lively conversation and... More

This is a local institution that would probably survive a major sea level rise. Translation-- it can really do nothing wrong enough to harm itself. Its main claim is that of a cozy, working man watering hole that feels like it's straight out of Ireland. I'm a local and have never been that in love with the place, although out-of-town... More

Googled restaurant on a day trip. Menu has lots of options. We were greeted as we walked in the and the waitress came right over. Menu and specials were pub food with their own twist. Even though the place was busy, it didn't take long for food to arrive.

Went early because we were very hungry and glad we did. By 5:00 every table was taken. Mostly local people eating there. Restaurant is charming, with many signs hanging down from the ceiling and on the walls. A good Cape Cod place. We ordered local oysters and clams - fried. Served with creamy coleslaw and thin crispy fries. Everything was... More

Been going to this place most of my life and every time I go home I have to have some good NE chowder and this is the real thing. Clams, potato, and cream are just about all that's in it! No celery or parsley like I get in Oregon😀

Always dependable, but you get exactly what you would expect. Standard pub food at a reasonable price. Kind of difficult location for parking and always busy. Atmosphere is friendly and kind of cool.

Quality dining experience. Fun pub atmosphere, good crowd on a Sunday evening off season. Decent craft brew selection and great food for a moderate price.
