Really happy we decided to give them a try -- thankfully we got there just before the mad rush. By the time we left, the line was out the door and this is during the off season.

We started with the grilled brie appetizer (heavenly!) and then I had buttermilk chicken (3 big pieces that I couldn't finish), homemade red mashed potatoes and the best broccoli I've ever had from a restaurant.

My sister got the lobster mac n cheese and ate almost all of it (rare for her). Big chunks of lobster, yet the cream wasn't too rich. She also had broccoli and remarked on how delish it was.

Dessert? Way too full to even attempt it.

We didn't try their peanuts (scoop up and bring in a bowl to your table, toss shells on floor), but heard others remark on how good they were.

Reason for 4 stars and not 5? Tight, tight tables. If you get in early and get a booth, you're golden. We had a table near the center and got bumped a bit.

So happy we tried this place. I had swordfish with butternut squash & rice, hubby had a steak. We both had a glass of on site made beer that was very good. Fire was burning in the big fireplace. Cozy atmosphere. Wonderful meal with a terrific surprise! Monday nights are BOGO free in the off season. Yay!

Glad we came across this place, everything else seemed to be closed. Had a good lunch washed down with some very pleasant beers. There's a good atmosphere about the place, with friendly staff on hand to provide good service. Seek it out.

This tavern brews it's own selection of beers. The food is typical pub grub and served in a sailing themed bar area. When we visited it was very busy but service was still good. Food was plentiful and good quality.

Not to be missed, especially if you like local beers...made on premises. A busy spot even in October. Good food and friendly staff. My one suggestion is that they find a better source for pizza dough. I love wood fired pizza which is why I was eager to get it on one of our dinners at Offshore. Although the topping was delicious, the dough was crisp, but not that nice crisp/chewy version often found in wood fired pizza.
