Working in the area for awhile and thought we would try out this place for the first time. We had the taco salad, which was pretty good and also the fish and chips. The menu claims it's beer battered fresh cod, but we believe it was similar to Gorton's frozen fish filets, very disappointed. May go back as there are... More

Found this local restaurant on Trip Advisor while traveling in the area. It provided the perfect location for a quick dinner near our hotel. The menu is diverse and claims all the food is freshly prepared. The waiter was happy to modify an entree to better meet my dinner request, and it was delicious. Overall our service was excellent, and... More

....I need to go back a few more times to give this place a fair shake. Went once with friends and we did a bunch of appetizers and drinks. Drinks were small for the price. Apps were tasty but also small. I won't write it off but I hope a dinner experience overcomes the experience of apps and drinks.

I've been to this restaurant several times over the past year or so. I guess I just kept hoping they'd get their act together... Decent menu & drinks but overall the place falls short most of the time. Seems like constant turnover in wait staff & although friendly, they just can't get out of their own way & no one... More

Stopped in late evening with a group of friends and kids mostly looking for a few drinks and expecting simple bar food offerings. The menu was surprisingly large and diverse. Our group had everything from steaks to chicken parmigiana and every person was pleased. From appetizers to salads to full entrees, there were great options at every level. Portions were... More

We had a nice time, the happy hour drinks are well made. You have to sit in a specific area for happy hour but the waitress was nice enough to let us stay at the table we were at since it was pretty empty and we had 'gotten comfortable'.

Sometimes loud, especially during football season. But fun! We have been to Square One several times, once with a large group, and twice with another couple. The food is always good, especially the burgers and the chicken sandwich. The service is always attentive.

Thank gurr10
