Went in for drinks and bites at the bar, great atmosphere. Beautiful view, great location to just hang out with friends and enjoy drinks from the bar.

The view is great, food is great, staff were friendly and the wait on food wasn't bad given how busy it was. The drinks are good and selection is great.

Pleasant casual bar/restaurant overlooking harbor. Food and service was excellent. But for what it is, the prices are about a third higher than value delivered. Fried cod sandwich for $20; fish and chips for $19?

We happened upon this as we walked the neighborhood and loved it. We already had dinner plans but decided to try this place at least for a drink since, surprisingly, the town appears to have very little to offer right on the water. We were...More
