I will have to admit we only went here because they had openings when we had forgotten to make reservations and everything else was booked. The food was surprisingly good. The place is tiny with hard wood booths. I didn't give it a higher rating...More

it's got atmosphere, a good menu, attentive service, full range of beers and good food so there's not much to dislike. It's in an ideal situation close to the waterfront. Worth going to.
