This place is fun. We didn't come for dinner so I cannot comment on that, but were walking by after hours and heard some live music and decided to stop in. Friendly, good music, nice draft beer selection. Enjoyed the visit.

I loved the staff and the feel of the crowd. Very comfortable and real. Their chowder was yummy while being unique from the typical creamy potato style. I preferred it's rich broth and would recommend trying it. My sons Scampi and my steamers were heavy...More
