We were staying in an inn nearby and went there to watch the Superbowl. We sat at the bar to watch the game. We had a big lunch and weren't that hungry, but everybody said the smoked pulled pork nachos were very good. They were delicious and a generous portion for a reasonable price. Drinks too were generous and reasonably... More

My last review as five star in 2011. We eat here occasionally and have seen a slow decline in variety and quality. We had a late lunch on this last occasion and while my reuben tasted fine it was not worth the $14 that was charged for it. My wife said her haddock sandwich was not fresh. She said the... More

I have been a few times, and it is a place to plan on visiting when you are in the area for a special meal, to be at the bar, or for a cup of tea.

Had a very enjoyable lunch here. Ordered the fish sandwich blackened and it was excellent. Also ordered a couple dozen raw oysters that were also very good. A little bit pricey but the quality of the food would make me want to return. Server did a nice job especially when she was asked for suggestions.

I had the best pulled pork sandwich I have ever eaten. My husband had a burger and said it was perfectly prepared.

A menu that makes you wish you were there with a busload of your friends so you could order everything - the pulled pork nachos are a don't-miss item. Great selection of beer and entertainment upstairs.

We enjoy sitting at the bar here. There are always interesting locals who enjoy a good chat. The food is good. We got burgers, which were delicious, then stopped back the next day for lunch and got pork nachos and mussels. Again, both very good!

Went here with a friend of ours for dinner, and enjoyed a scrumptious meal. Two had the lobster roll special, and one had the salmon. All very good. Also enjoyed three different wine selections, and each were equally good offerings. Will return when we're in the area.

We've lunched here several times, although it's been a while. The food is good -- mostly typical New England food and some pub-style favorites. Service is prompt and friendly. The decor gives one a feeling of elegant dining even if you're chowing down on a huge plate of nachos. The building is old but nicely maintained and the murals on... More

The food is excellent. However, service was slow and the hostess seemed a bit lost. Lots of flies (we swatted 4 during our visit), and a couple fruit flies. These made the experience less than appetizing.
