“Warm and Friendly restaurant in Port Clyde, ME”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

My husband and I ate here 3 times during our week long stay in beautiful Port Clyde and we found the food to be prepared very well. The baked haddock and Caesar salad with pan seared scallops were the winners. We preferred eating in the small tavern versus the restaurant as it provided a warm and friendly atmosphere with mostly locals. Sally the bartender was wonderful and so welcoming each time! We will definitely be back!

“OK”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Service was good but the food was just ok - went there for 2 evening meals - not much choice in this town - too much chit chat amoung the staff.

“Excellent and quick lobster served here.”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

Two lobsters well down and served in 15 minutes! Soup and dessert price (12$) help make up for the main dish price (19$). This appears to be a place popular with the locals, not just for tourists.

“An alternative in a place with few choices”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

If your tastes do not run to sitting on a picnic bench outside, this might be a good choice. Good seafood and full bar.

“Soup & Appetizers”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We stopped in around 5PM for a light supper. The Harpoon, which is under new ownership had a good number of vehicles in the small parking lot but most patrons must have been in the bar because only about 3 tables in the diningroom were occupied as we entered but did fill considerably as we sat. We ordered a local beer the Seafood Chowder, which was very good, not overwhelmed with potato, the fried oysters...12, which were very good...no garnish but tasty and I had a small Caesar salad, which was delightful. The service was great...Although we had no problems with our limited requests there did seem to be a bit of unhappiness at two of the surrounding tables....several items were sent back? Not sure why but...the problems were handled well and everyone appeared happy.
