Reservations at 7:30, was going to put us in a booth, so asked for a table. No problem, as it was not that busy. We do live here, and have been here a number of times in the past. We all know the day of the week you go makes all the difference, and apparently Friday evening is a no no. So sat down looked at menus, but as I said we all knew what we wanted within a few minutes. Sat the menus on the end of table and waited, and waited. After 25 minutes, and a number of staff walking by us, it was getting a bit old. As I said they were not that busy. The final straw was when I assumed our waitress sat down in one of the booths to count her tips. So at 8:05 we got up (4 adults), as we walked out we managed to tell the bartender that after waiting 30 minutes and being ignored, we were out of there. Also should mention, while I get the live entertainment, it is very hard to hear yourself think when they turn the volume up on max. People going in to have a few beer may like that, but I can assure you anyone going to eat a meal, you would enjoy being able to talk, we found texting one another much easier.

We had a really nice meal. I wasn't expecting to eat all the onions myself, so ate a little too much fried food and could not finish my fries. Everything cooked to perfection, loved the onions and scallops.

This restaurant is very close to the ferry and had decent food. The woman who served us was very friendly and helpful as we asked some questions about our trip.

Good food and wonderful service. We were a little hesitant about going after reading the recent reviews. I totally disagree with the negative reviews. So much of your experience depends upon your attitude. We found that the staff were very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

Good food, service was a bit slow due to being very busy after the ferry arrived in town. We had nachos and potato skins, and some of their brew. Beers are very good, and the food was very good too. They are on Water St., about a mile north of the ferry terminal. Great location on the waterfront. Plenty of parking, and the building is yellow, so you can't miss it.

Ate inside. - A bit too chilly to sit outdoors on the dockside patio, but it's really nice. Service was a bit curt. Good menu with seafood & meat. Food was pretty average.

Order took 1 1/2 hours to receive food. Had to put meal in to go packs as we ran out of time. It appears you need minimum of 2 hours plus to eat there. Order was fish with salad. Price for what we had was way overpriced!

We should have known better when they told us there was a 45 minute wait before we could place an order but we sat down anyway. After the kitchen hold was over we placed our orders not thinking that we would have to wait another 45 minutes for our food to be delivered. The fried shrimp was good and it was a generous portion. The fries were hot and tasty. The clams were tender. Seafood soup was delivered cold. It was sent back and still came out cold. All in all the food was okay but the wait was unacceptable.

AVOID this place. Overpriced inedible food. Servers seemed to expect complaints. Was the only restaurant open in Yarmouth that evening. I should have gone home hungry.

We were here for dinner after coming in off the ferry and it was terrible. Place is old and dirty. Food was inedible. I had the hot lobster roll and it looked like someone chewed up lobster and spit it out on the roll swimming in watery cream sauce. I really should have sent it back. My husband faired a little better with the burger but he asked for medium and it was well done. Service was good but that was it.

Prices were a bit steep for the quality of the food. One order was sent back- seafood salad-as we were told “no onions” but it was filled with them. I had their hot lobster roll however it came as lobster on toast and was bland. Other meals were good-seafood casserole (more like a soup) and coconut shrimp Caesar salad was good. This place was highly recommended but I would say it was overrated. Good service and beer (beer and liquor/wine prices were very reasonable).

We come frequently to visit family in Yarmouth. We have been literally hundreds of times to this restaurant. I've never been more disappointed - prices have increased incredibly and the amount of lobster in the dishes has decreased to almost nothing. The lobster mac and cheese is a newer dish on the menu so I ordered it tonight and there may have been three tiny pieces of lobster in it. A family member ordered the chowder which promised to have lots of lobster and there was one tiny piece in it. Yes the taste was good but not at this price!! I've gone from a raving fan to a disappointed one.

Nice spot. Poor service. We ordered an appetizer that didn’t appear. We waited an hour for our meal. The food was good but my wife’s was not hot. Had been sitting for a bit somewhere I’d guess. Wasn’t a great dining experience.
