Well, after reviews it read correct. On a Saturday night there was limited servers but once we were seated it was excellent. Ordered oysters on a half shell, fried class and some house cocktails. Shell fish was some of the best I've ever had, drinks were good, and atmosphere was inviting. The server felt empathetic toward the wait and offered... More

This place is okay if you're drunk or going to get drunk, I wouldn't want to take any of my friends or family members there.

Just off Main Street, a lively place with a Key West feel. Surfing videos on. Good bar scene and great food! I usually get the seafood salad, but the shrimp and fries are delicious...and much more.

The best crab cake of my life and I have Maine history, so when I tell you the crab cakes are great I mean it.

We wandered in on a Saturday evening, it wasn't too crowded for our group of five. Although our waitress was a little timid, the barback/busboy was awesome. He deilvered food and drinks and chatted us up. Nice kid! The group ordered fish n chips, fish tacos, cuban sandwich and a chicken sandiwch. Portions are decent sized, the food was tasty... More

Had lunch which consisted of their shrimp cocktail, that was very good to share. Chicken sandwich was good, nothing really special, but the mahi mahi was good, and seemed to be the way to go. Service was good, nice, and efficient. Bathrooms were a bit rough, even for lunch. Seems like that is an insight of the restaurant lowering their... More

We just stopped in for a beer, sat on the little patio and relaxed. The beer was nice and cold and the bartender (who waited on us) was attentive. It's just off Main Street so there is not as much traffic noise - have never eaten here though.
