Last tome i was here was in 1991 & it is the same place as it ever was, & I mean that in a good way. Good comfort food, good beer & liquor drinks. Try the lobster roll, or one of their burgers.

it's so so, bar seems to be okay. Food is average. Portions are good. Fish 'n chips and stuff like that. Not my cup-a-tea. But a friend of mine loves it. Seating is rustic.
