Great Waterfront Spot. Very busy and happening spot. Band upstairs, all the fish meals we ate were great. Will be back soon.
Great salmon. Everyone happy
Outstanding service! Courtney and the rest were spectacular. Appetizers were very good however most of the entrees were underwhelming especially at the price point.
Lobster roll was delicious, great atmosphere overlooking the bay and guick service. Arrived 20 minutes early for reservations and they sat us within a few minutes.
Excellent food, lovely outdoor seating.
Service was efficient. Would have liked more healthyr choices outside of salads.
Great place to eat and relax by the water! Highly recommend!
We had dinner with friends, from Maryland. Everything was perfect! Food was very good, service was excellent and we were able to take our time, never felt rushed!
Went to celebrate son’s birthday with a group of his friends. We were seated on time, had a table along the window, service was pleasant and efficient, and food was delicious. Portions were generous.
Was a very nice time… would have been better if the weather was nicer 😊
Beautiful spot, food and drinks were terrible, good service.
Crab cakes and shrimp tacos were excellent! Table with beautiful view of Bristol Harbor. Matt, our server, was very attentive.
Lunch there, the fish tacos and the chicken wrap excellent. The Caesar salad very disappointing; too much dressing and the dressing was too heavy; the lettuce looked as though it had been sitting in water too long. The whole salad had the appearance of coleslaw rather than a fresh salad. Luckily the salmon I added was delicious. Service is excellent and the water views are terrific.
We had a wonderful time. The service was a little slow, the food was great and the scenery is to die for. However, we were seated right below the band and it was not optimal for conversation. Probably wouldn’t go again if there was live entertainment.
Prices have increased considerably since previous visit. Meals ok but clam cakes way under cooked and not worth the cost.
Excellent food, great ambiance and amazing service!
Food was fair. Service was ok. Live music was fun. The setting is beautiful. Would go back but just for a burger or something simple.
Best lobster roll in NE, great casual spot.
Excellent food, drinks and service. Do recommend making a reservation. If not you may have to wait awhile. Worth the wait 😁
The view was incredible, service was excellent. Food was ok. Music too loud. Will definitely be back.
The menu was disappointing, compared to the on-line menu. The drinks were too expensive. The price of meals was high but generally in keeping with other restaurants in the area, so cant really complain about that. Our waitress disappeared for long periods of time, and we had to ask the busboys or another waitress to get her a couple of times. The view was terrific.
You should eat here. It’s terrific.
Best clam chowder and fish and chips ever!
Great food, great service and the view of the harbor was outstanding
The scenery was beautiful…right on the water. The restaurant was relatively quiet for a Monday. But the night before they had a rowdy group. The food was good. I had a burger and my husband had a pastrami sandwich.
Great location right on the water. Food was just ok. My wife had the salmon and I had the lobster mac n cheese. Salmon was salty and mac n cheese needed something more… salt maybe? Drinks were not great either. My wife loves mules and had the mango mule but did not like it ( served in a glass instead of customary moscow mule mug). Sent it back for a margarita which was not much better. I played it safe with a stout on tap! Unfortunately experience was not memorable.
Atmosphere, location excellent, Service prompt, courteous. Welcoming. Food average, portions smaller than expected, taste was good, preparation and presentation good. Cleanliness very good. Table distancing very comfortable. Waterside view exceptional. Pricing good, affordable and acceptable! Overall a very good experience, would give it 4 Stars and highly recommend it for a causal night out!
Taylor was very friendly. A great person , offering great service.
The ambiance and food was great, as well as the service. The drinks were very watered down and too expensive. The code of the meals was also quite expensive.
The food was excellent and the portions were a good size. We were seated right on the water and the view was awesome. Matt was our server and he was attentive, polite and very personable. Would definitely recommend.
Food and ambiance were great. The service was excellent as well. Definitely will be going back!
Never have any complaints always a great atmosphere .From booking our reservations on line to our waitress and our food. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. Would definitely recommend to family and friends. They will not be disappointed . We will be back soon . Mr and Mrs Anthony Spaziano
Definite return visit needed, excellent menu options, good pricing,friendly staff and quick attentive service. Absolute treasurw
The fish and chips are a very large portion, and taste amazing! Highly recommend if you are looking to eat on the water.
Besides the fire alarm being tested, it was great!!
Beautiful location. Good variety of food. I enjoys the chowder and clam cakes.
The food was over cooked and the menu was small.
Great location, good food.
Service was great, food was warm and tasted fresh. When we got there it was quite loud to where I couldn’t hear myself talking but as time went on it got quieter as they began to leave. The dessert was A++ the warmed brownie was phenomenal.
Reservations should be made..... our table was in a perfect location. Our servers were awesome! Food was delicious but portions were small.
Great food and service. Very accommodating when requested tables put together.
