Originally built as a liquor warehouse, overlooking Hamilton Harbour, this is a popular, reasonably priced dining choice and after-dark venue. The menu is satisfying, though not memorable. You might begin with Caribbean seafood salad, loaded with calamari, shrimp, fresh mussels, and other local fish, all in a basil vinaigrette. Angus beef, cut and trimmed in-house, is the chef's signature dish; it's tender and cooked to your specifications, accompanied by steak-cut potatoes and zesty peppercorn sauce. Prime rib, sizzling pizza, and some of the island's best fish chowder are regularly featured.
The balcony opens onto Front Street. On Wednesday, Harbor Night, the busiest night of the week, the street is closed off and the scene becomes a festive mini-celebration, with street performers and vendors setting the tone (May-Oct). There is live entertainment 7 nights a week during high season.
