Service: We always go during the afternoon, and the bartender usually carries the entire floor. The service is still very personable and quick, but you may not be checked on often. Do yourself and the staff a favor: make sure you’re set when they’re at the table.

Booze: Full bar.

Food:

Soup | bowl of homemade new england clam chowder $ 5.50 

Bait Strips | strips of new england clams, battered and deep fried, served with cole slaw and cocktail sauce $ 8.95 

Spinnaker Dip | tasty blend of spinach, artichokes, and blended cheese served with tortilla chips and pita triangles $ 6.95

Burger | certified angus beef with your choice of toppings $ 6.50 

Fish Submarine | ale battered whitefish, deep fried to a golden brown. served on a toasted hoagie roll with lettuce, tomato, onion and tarter sauce $ 7.25 

Creamy, indulgent clam chowder—with a plethora of actual clams—was delicious and hearty, just as it should be. The fried clam strips were tasty, too; I only wish the cocktail sauce had a bit more kick. Luckily hot sauce was on the table. As for the spinach dip, this steaming cream cheese overload was full of large artichoke chunks, topped with tomatoes and parmesan, and served with both chips and pita, so every dipper’s preference is satisfied. The burger was unfortunately mediocre. Moving on… piping hot, oversized, beer-battered fish on a toasty baguette, anyone? One of the best I’ve had in in town. Messy due to its size, but never soggy or greasy. Pro-tip: Crispy onion petals are the perfect match. If your preference is chips, these homemade crisps won’t disappoint either.

Overall: Nice pub to grab a drink and a bite. Has a very local neighborhood, but still welcoming feel.
