I got a choice table by the window overlooking Niantic Bay. Nice. My food was really good and well-prepared. Nice ambience and the waitress was very pleasant and efficient. Big plus is the fact that it has its own parking lot off to one side.

The lobster roll was the best I've ever had. The New England style roll was toasted and the lobster was fresh, topped with melted butter. The coleslaw was freshly made!!

Food was very good. Menu full, but $20 for nachos with chicken is extreme. Would not complain if the nachos were remotely decent, but they lacked cheese, and the chicken were little chips of dried-out something. And, did I mention for $20? **good place, but...More

Really enjoyed our dinner. Stopped in for dinner after beach combing the evening away. It has really nice decor. The bathrooms are a little small but clean. We really enjoyed the sampler appetizer. It had 3 mozzarella sticks, 2 potato skins, and buffalo wings. All...More

We had lunch at 2pm, and either Cary was new, or inefficient, but it took a long time for us to get served, and even longer to get the check - considering the bar was empty and the outside seating was half full. She got...More
