We dropped in at the spur of the moment. It was my first warm lobster roll in Connecticut. Hubs said it's overpriced but I thought it tasted great. Looking forward to coming back there again some day.

Fun bar scene with many locals and a good appetizer menu. Nice, clean atmosphere. Parking was easy. Piano player at times. Check the schedule. The bartender is a character!

Service was good and ambiance was okay but disappointed in my dinner. The lobster ravioli didn't have much lobster in it.

Were a bit skeptical after reading some of the reviews and stayed away from a few dishes as a result. The first thing we noticed is that the decor and atmosphere in the main dining room was late 70's. This made us even more apprehensive...More

We hadn't been to this restaurant and are very happy we decided to visit. Our server, Erica, was a joy and very helpful exposing different dishes. The prices are reasonable and the variety of choices was appreciated. I had the scallops and my wife the...More

I have no idea what his name is. Sorry. One of the guys behind the bar the night we were there was so drunk I don't think he knew his name.
