This is a can't miss restaurant. Their Reuben sandwiches are excellent. They come with superb handmade chips and an old-fashioned pickle slice. I also recommend starting with at least a cup of their clam chowder. We were told by the locals that the place is...More

Have had dinners, lunches, and drinks here on multiple occasions and have always been happy with service as well as the food. They have an awesome outside deck area with a bar and live music. Try the seafood pasta plate, very light and absolutely delicious.

Great Outdoors in a fun eatery. Atmosphere is eclectic. Lots of great photos. Love the wooden kayak. They handled a group of nine very well. Everyone was happy with their meal. I really enjoyed my bison burger. They have a nice selection of local beers.

There is something for everyone, great selection of food and beer. It is a treat to sit outside when the weather gets cooler. It is a treat when you can be there when live music is playing. Go with a group and share meals.

This is one of the more expensive restaurants in town but the staff is very friendly and the food is good quality. On Tuesdays they offer half-price burgers so I went in to try one (they'll cook it to your preference). It was a good...More

Yes they are. They even give them a bowl of water. Restaurant suggested making a reservation to guarantee a table so you don't have to wait too long. Enjoy your visit and take a picture for Trip Advisor. Sue S.
