We were told this is where all the locals go. We met another couple who are regulars at this restaurant. I wasn't impressed at all. The clam chowder wasn't very thick and very little flavor. I had the haddock daily special with crab and Parmesan...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Out of our 4 night stay in Bath, visited the restaurant 3 times. Lots of menu choices. The service was friendly but a bit slow, so be sure to have time for a good meal.

I had the chicken piccata and it was wonderful. The service was a bit slow, but it was very busy while I was there. The food was wonderful and the menu had many good options.
