Stopped in here for a late lunch and received a friendly greeting from Christopher who was the host, bartender and our server. He was the only person we saw working there (presume a cook was out back).

My partner went with the Fish Tacos which she felt were good, but not the best she has ever had. I went with the Gourmet GrilledCheese Sandwich which I do believe might be the best one I have ever had.

The good food and the great service we received from Christopher made it a very pleasant eating experience. We would go back.

Not impressed with the revamp or menu. This is a tough location in which many restaraunts have come and gone. I think it is the new family place in town, kids running everywhere on our visit. Which is ironic, it being a burger and beer joint. Burgers were average as well as the fries, nothing to write home about or worth a second visit. Just to many better places in town.

We stayed at the "Pink House" B&B in Marblehead, MA. We asked for recommendations for dinner and she suggested another place , that I'm sure would have been great! BUT it's cold out and this place smelled like delicious hamburgers! So we ducked in out of the briskness and had a great meal of "sweet potato chile & lime tortilla soup" & the fresh pizza with avacado, chicken, cheese, bacon, onion, oh I dunno a bunch of yummy stuff, both from the specials. We had 2 PBRs each at 2.50 per, cannot beat that price! Our server Nicole was sweet! We would come back if we didn't live in Florida!

We went on a Saturday evening and they were pretty busy but there were a couple tables available. We waited by the hostess stand for several minutes before being acknowledged. Then we were told to wait several more minutes. When we were seated we waited several more minutes before getting menus or a drink order. We finally ordered burgers and the fish tacos. The food was very good and hot when we got it. Burgers are around $12 and come with fries that are also tasty. I hope they hire more help so I can return.
