We visit whb each summer and go to John Scott's a couple of times per week. The lobster rolls, hamburgers, poughs ... are all delicious. Very casual and good service. Monday nights are 10cent wings and sometimes live music.

Went there on a Monday night - Wings Night. Twenty cents a wing. They are great with buffalo sauce or blue cheese. Fabulous! And ice cold beer. Also great fish tacos. We go there often and love it.

Total waste of $70 and 2 hours. This restaurant is a joke and is really just a hang out place for the staff to have some drinks and plan their next party. We were sat close to the kitchen and apparently the section that is...More
