We went to the pub for some in our party hadn't had an evening meal as they flew in too late to eat with the rest of the party. The service was great and drinks arrived quickly. There was a small trio playing and we enjoyed the entertainment while waiting for the food orders. The diners reported that the food was hot and tasty although the fish and chips had too much batter for the senior in our group. Otherwise everyone was satisfied.

We had 2 orders of wings and they will prepare them as you like! We had them 'well done' and they were great! Had the crab cakes as well... a bit pricey but good service and can't beat the view! I would go back!

Our server Sean and the tacos were fantastic. If you can get a window table the view is very interesting.

We are not normally fish eaters, but we have been many times to this pub, and no matter how busy (and they usually are), the service is as good as it gets. There is also patio dining with the ocean right under your feet. You can dine and watch the tides change at the same time. This time the restaurant was virtually empty and the service was even better. Three double orders of fish and chips and a beer each was $75, but worth every penny.

Food is pretty good but a little expensive for what it is. Bartender drinks are watered down, especially the "specials". Lots of seating, great views and outside balcony seating in summer. Warning: if it's a gorgeous day and you want to sit outside, wait for a table to come open. They have a bizarre policy where once you're seated you can't move to another table; they call it "table hopping"! Never experienced that anywhere else.
