I stopped here for a drink after work and it was within walking distance of the hotel. Draft beer was cold and the atmosphere was great especially when the singing began.

This place was so very clean and cute when we walked in. The workers were busy cleaning everything up. We had the lobster roll for dinner which was very good. Its a fairly small bar on the waterfront, but very comfortable.

Great spot. Locals come in after work, shoot the breeze and have a couple. Nice bartender, Jen. Also met Jimmy here , who is a manager at Surfside Smokehouse. This became our early evening happy hour place. Nice folks.
