Another West Dennis treasure. Fun. Good food. Great drinks. Friendly staff and patrons. The staff was from Ireland this year and very engaging. Indoor and Out door drinking and dining. Fun memories through the years with friends and families.

A great location in West Dennis with unique marsh-side views you're hard pressed to find elsewhere (great for late afternoon when sun changes sky color). A fun environment with outside picnic table seating, table top Ms PAC-Man/ Galaxy and the Tiki Toss. Been a couple...More

The employees were not friendly and were actually rude when a group from a wedding went to go to the sand bar after the wedding was over. Wouldn't bother to go again

The food's nothing to shout about, especially if you already live somewhere with great fried seafood in the summer, but the view is unique - very Cape - the vibe is friendly, and they have two of our favorites: indoors, a Ms. Pac-Man / Galaga...More

Perfect for everyone. We sat outside with our 2 babies and the weather was perfect and the view was nice too. Staff is always cheerful and food is on point. I only wish they had champagne splits.
