I went to this restaurant rather blindly as we were staying in the hotel it's attached to. What a surprise!!! Although the décor is a bit antiquated the food was tremendous!!! Generous portions, friendly service, seasonal specials----everyone in our party was impressed!!!! Make sure you try the lasagna. It's to die for!!!!

The food is wonderful and the waitstaff are very good. We were there in the fall and pumpkin was prominent on the menu. I had the Pumpkin Squash Soup and the Pumpkin Ravioli. Both were delicious!!! This restaurant is very unassuming and, honestly, not even noticeable from the outside. I would not have known it existed until invited to meet... More

Now very good in terms of the food might be a bit high. It was a solid good meal. And a price that was SUPER reasonable. I had the broiled (or baked?) seafood. The price was very reasonable, and the seafood fresh. Portions were very generous. The service was excellent. But the highlight was the cocktails. The bartender clearly knew... More

Steak is tough, even when ordered rare. Everything else is fair. Way too overpriced for the area but, then again, most businesses in this area think they are special.

Visited there as a family get-together. It was a Sunday night in late July. For the most part the food was great. I had the Captain's Platter that I would rate a 3. Why a 3? Scallops were awesome. Fish was great. Clams not so much. Over cooked clams are no more than batter. Fries were good but cole slaw... More

At first glance, this restaurant seemed a little odd and rundown, but a local took our group of four here for dinner. My house salad had a little too much dressing, but wasn't bad. I tried something different for dinner - the fiddlehead ravioli. I was pleasantly surprised. They provided a decent portion of ravioli and the fiddleheads, something I've... More

My fiance and I tend to come here as a date night on Saturdays. The staff are nice and strive to do their best. I enjoy their bread, always warm and fresh. Service is very accommodating. We tend to ask for a pitcher of water because we drink through the water fairly quickly. Prices may be a little high then... More
