We stayed here for a college visit and it was just ok. There were inappropriate stains in the bathroom, one bed was much shorter than the other (uncomfortably so).

Food wasn't great, but the real issue was there was a long blonde hair (human hair) in my lobster roll. Like mixed in with the lobster filling. Which was bland and didn't taste good anyway. The roll came out of a bag, not even local or fresh, despite the bakeries in town. Very sad dinner, which ended with a partial... More

My wife and I decided to go out for a drink, just to get out of the house and relax a little. My wife ordered a breakfast ale (can't remember the name) and I ordered a Racer IPA. Great IPA. That's it. But when the check came we were shocked to see that the total (without tip) came to $19.25!... More

Wonderful atmosphere @ the Inn as the locals call it. We shared a few drinks and the best salads I've ever tested! Can't wait to have my husband take me out now!!

We ate on the bar side which is casual. Great selection of beer and a good mixed menu of sandwiches, burgers and entrees. Service is excellent.
