    review rating 1  The waitresses were really good and did a great job unfortunately for them the kitchen is clueless when it comes to any kind of culinary skills. The food is aweful. I would not eat there again if you paid me. And to make matters worse it was kereok night. People get a life...and hey here's an idea. Turn the volume down!! OMG!! For that reason I'm out...

  • review rating 1  I suggested African Americans and Hispanic people do not go to this please, this place is very racist. They stare at you and they intimidate you it's almost like you don't belong there please please try not to go to this and please tell all your friends and followers also not to go to this place. It's 20/20 and I can't believe that there is still places that linger racism.

    review rating 2  20 minutes to get a stuffed quahog that was cold in the middle. The place wasnt busy and the service was not good. I planned on eating there and left after my 20 minute quahog. I ordered a Tito's and cranberry. The bartender uncharged me for a tall I did not order. I wont be back.

    review rating 5  Great sports bar atmosphere and very friendly staff! Wish signature cocktails were advertised their size but they were made very well. Just came for drinks as we're from out of town and already ate elsewhere but glad we found this place! Would definitely come back!
