Excellent sea scallops and beef chuck tips as well as good price on twin lobsters and many comfort foods in a local pub/diner setting. Good portions and great value. Popular place with the locals.

We loved the large bar. The food we ordered was good and reasonable priced. We got King Crab legs which came cracked open for us. Delish! For our meal I got broiled haddock. It was so tasty. Their cole slaw is my favorite. My husband...More
