We were looking for dinner rather late on a Thursday night and we're so happy we decided on the wharf pub. Their chowder was delicious and a little different from regular clam chowder. The tuna burger was fabulous and the pork sliders were great too....More

Loved this place. Live music and a relaxed pub atmosphere. The venison burger was outstanding with herbed goat cheese and mushrooms and pay the extra bit for the tots. The ma's meatloaf special was also delicious and you can't beat the price.

What more could you ask for. It was crowded and there was a wait but but was worth it. Great selection of beer on tap and we were all happy with our food. The fried chicken was my favorite.

Out of the first two drafts I ordered but gave good alternative recommendation . Fried pickle spears were good, but prefer chips. The Matunuck Burger with fried oysters was delicious, as were the Black Sea Tater Tots with anchovy butter. .

I ordered a bloody mary. It came with a spicy green bean, a shrimp, lemon and a pepper (maybe a pablano) wrapped in prosciutto on top. My wife had a salad with a piece of fried chicken. Not a frozen, breaded piece of chicken, but...More
