Great place. Friendly staff. They make their own beer which is delicious. Only tried the nachos which were pretty tasty.

My wife and I had dinner there one night recently and were not disappointed. The atmosphere is very laid back and local. You order your food at the bar, then enjoy one of their great beers (I recommend the Pale Whale Ale) while they prepare your dishes. The mussels were fantastic (as expected), and chasing them with a bowl of sossys really hit the spot. We didn't try any entrees as we filled up quickly on the "snacks." I bet it's even better with some live music. They don't care for cell phone use there as well, which makes the atmosphere even better.

Stopped in with our young family - 11 and 9 - post a day at the spit. Kids loved their local ginger beer, us the craft beer. Nice mellow spot for an afternoon break.

We loved the beer and the place. There was either a big tour group or a big group of locals having a good time out front. Blind eye turned to some weed being smoked under the shade sails (we did not partake). Food was good and not a long wait and complemented the rustic style and the beers. Can't say I'd heard of the "Manhatten style" seafood chowder before (wasn't what I had in Manhatten!) but it was quite tasty.

We love our yearly visits. Always look forward to a bowl of mussels and Manuka beersies. Been coming here for about 20 years and it’s just gotten better and better.
