Had fried clams and prime rib dinner. The only thing better than the perfect food was the service by Jodie. Recommend highly.

Consistently good service and great burgers. I want my burgers screaming rare. This is one of the few places that I can get it as ordered. Fresh, delicious, and extremely rare. Beer selection is awesome, and service is attentive.

I was dissapointed that they did not have the lobster roll on the off season, but can't say enough about Cod Ruben. They also have a great selection of beer. The service was awesome.
