I had to work late in Hyannis so stopped for a quick bite with my daughter who was also in town.

Upon arrival a cheer bartender greeted us. We chose a deuce in the back. The table was rocking major so I squatted on the floor for 5 min. tucking a napkin underneath as staffed pass back and forth. The heat was coming out of a floor vent off and on so when on it was toasty, when off, darn right cold. The music was rather loud but sometimespleasing melodic reggae and other times something a little rhyme or reason..must be a personal iPod mix. There were two tables when we arrived and when we left two at the bar and two more tables. Oh, the bathroom is clean as a whistle with hot water. Yahhhh

We waited 10 min for the bartender to take our drink order. I had a great Margarita, homemade no mix. My DD had gingerale. 10 min later a harried waitress came over. Her greeting was "got any questions about the menu". I too had a harried day so tried to change the pace a little by greeting with her "good evening,how are you". She smiled and became attentive and friendly the remainder of the night.

My daughter and I shared a small portion of Caesar Salad and a penne jerk chicken entree. The Caesar was really good with pineapple. The penne had portobello which was nice. ..we were stuffed..really good food. ...would be a great place to sit at the bar and have drinks in season I bet...nice vibe... One mention, I was finished and my DD was still eating and the bartender started clearing the table...I don't love that..but let her do her thing.
