We had a large group and once our server figured out how to accommodate us, things went well. Many of the group had entrees from the Mexican section of the menu. They were HUGE and delicious. When I asked which quesadilla she'd recommend, our server suggested the shredded chicken. It was delicious with a little kick to it and served with black beans, refried beans, sour cream, and lettuce and tomato. Easily enough for two to share as a meal. We took the leftovers home and reheated for a tasty snack. A number of the folks in the group got the chowder, which they would not recommend, saying it was way too "clammy" and not thick enough. Others enjoyed the chili and the potato soup.

My husband and I stayed overnight at the Hotel Viking. We were looking for a place to have lunch within walking distance of our hotel. This restaurant was perfect.

Great staff. Nice selection of food on the menu. I had the crab cakes and chowder. It was delicious. The chowder was full of clams.

If you are walking by and are hungry, I would check this place out.

Have driven by here for years and loved the outside appearance with lights in the window. The food and drinks were just okay. Typical small pub menu. Nice server though!

After a great day of sightseeing we wanted a causal place to relax & enjoy a good meal. Started the meal off with a Milky Way drink, which is hot chocolate, Baileys & lots of whipped cream - smashing! Burgers & other causal meals were had by all & everything was great. Nice environment & the weather was good so the front windows were open. Would repeat!
