The quality of food is always good. doesn't disappoint, Nice blackened Tuna. nice wines, beer. Burgers are good quality, Fresh. been going here since the 1970's changed owners several times, but they seem to negotiate good cooks. Does tend to get crowded on weekends

The clams on a 1/2 shell were fantastic! Same with the Ark sampler. New England clam chowder a winner. Fried Soft shell crabs could of been a bit crunchier for my taste but sill very good!

By far if you are in the area, this place serves the best burgers. I don't know if it was a special appetizer or a regular on the menu,, but if you have the opportunity to try the poppers stuffed with Mac and cheese, don't pass on it. The only drawback is that if you can't find a parking space... More

My kids can't get enough of the Ark. "Their burgers are super enormous and juicy." My husband loves their fries and all of their salads look delicious. Great family restaurant.

We picked The Ark for our weekly night out. The food was very good and the beer was cold, which is important. But it was very loud.

Should have ordered the fried cod sandwich, but wasn't far off ordering the Ark's famous burger. FANTASTIC!

The town trolley driver Chip took us here as per his suggestion. Typical pub food & drinks. We all enjoyed our dinner. Would go back if we visited PPB again.
