A saloon with a sense of humor appropriate to its spot on the still gritty commercial town dock. This is a refreshingly non-fancy place to eat good, fresh, local seafood  from a menu that includes clams casino and steamed mussels, veggie and fish sandwiches, burgers and daily specials. Homemade desserts too. A few tables have a view of the fishing boats. By day it is bright and airy; at night the dim lighting and decor make it more cozy and rock 'n roll in mood. The house rules are stiff- "No checks. No cell phones. No public restrooms. No strollers. No screaming kids. No requests. No dirt bags...."-but it's a really friendly place. Just don't try to use your cellphone, seriously.
