Was recommended this place by a friend and it was great. Great pub atmosphere and the food was excellent. It has that Cheers type feel and if we are back in the area, we will stop by.

This place is the best place in the area. Frequented by USCG service members. Great local food like sugar toads (Puffer Fish tails). Great local beers. Friendly staff. Don't miss this place. 540 Water Street with a great view of the bridge!
