Description: Fresh seafood, all natural beef and local produce, home made sumptuous desserts and 36 Craft Beers on tap are all available to you while overlooking the picturesque historic York River. Conveniently located on Rt. 1 in York, just 2 miles north of the Kittery Outlets. Visit our Ice Cream Shack right next door, serving the largest "small" cone around. Enjoy several of over 30 flavors and SO many toppings, it will be hard to decide.

We finally go to try the "new" restaurant at this spot. Our evening was okay, but did trip a number of my pet peeves. We were greeted by a couple of young ladies with, "Are there only two of you?" When will places learn the importance of first impressions? Our waitress was friendly and prompt, but knew nothing about serving. I know this is not fine dining, but training that goes beyond how to use the computerized menu system would be a great investment for management.
We eat out on a regular basis and like to try different places. Comparatively the food was average, but it is definitely priced with the tourists in mind.
The ambience is very casual with an overabundance of knotty pine - a hallmark of the other restaurants this group owns. We found the booths uncomfortable, but the are functional I guess. If you are interested in sitting outside, the location is lovely.
All in all we were underwhelmed.

We've had dinners here a few times with friends. Sad to say that this year's dinners were not as great as previous years. We had the Fried Seafood Medley with assorted fish and seafood. It was not crispy and the clams, fish and shrimp were just okay. This establishment seems to be more about beer and drinks than about providing quality food at this time. We have had better there, so should we try it again...I hope they will work to bring things up to their prior standard.

Just ok. Had to ask for starters to be served , salads were slim on dressing, meals were good portions, bartenders were more involved with chatting about their extracurricular activities than serving.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us, although we are disappointed to hear that our staff wasn't as attentive as they should have been. We can't fix these things unless we know, so thank you!

First time here. Read the variety of reviews so decided to check it out for ourselves.

We went on a Tuesday so it wasn't busy.

Our waitress was outstanding. She was very personable and the service was fast. As soon as we finished our appetizer we had our main course being brought out.

Food was cooked to perfection. We had the Irish Nachos for an appetizer and the steak tips and the stir fry w/chicken for the main course.

We will definitely be back...

Thank John N S

Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review! Our Beer Garden, next to the Ice Cream Shack, is new and has been well received by many, and its dog-friendly too!
Thanks again
