We stopped here for after work drinks and the service was good and we enjoyed our time here. I have tried the food here in the past and that was good as well. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to other people

For starters, our waitress, in her defense, was new; got the orders wrong, forgot items. I'm a forgiving person if the food is good. I said the title because if people in town are fine with the steak on the menu, they have yet to have steak. I did have a photo of the gristle that I left on my... More

We moved to the area last winter and have been looking for a local place to get a decent steak and not spend a fortune. We had a favorite near our old house and really wanted to find one closer. And we did. My husband had the prime rib and I had a lobster pie. We both got salads as... More

My daughter loves the steamers and orders them frequently. Staff is great here, attentive. Thursday night live band in the bar area. I typically don't eat in... More

First I would like to compliment the staff to include hostess and waitstaff. Everyone is friendly and attentive to you needs. We noticed right away, the portions are big and we had the baked scallops, backed haddock and the pot roast. All three meals were done well. Fish was not dry and had cracker topping. Scallops done perfectly with cracker... More

Typical local slop that the typical local diner raves about. The place just smells dirty. The portions were fairly large and we think this is one of the features that makes a place popular around here.

Restaurant location is easy to get to, plenty of parking. The exterior is very nice. Disappointed in the interior; really needs refurbishing. The restaurant is dark and dreary looking. Old pub tables and chairs and worn out rug. Went there for lunch during the work week. Our table for 6 was two tables put together and they were wobbly. My... More

My wife and I both had fish and it was cooked perfectly. Quality of the food was good and the price was average. Waitress was very knowledgeable and made an excellent suggestion of a choice of wine when I could not decide. Place was very clean and noise level low, all in all a pleasant experience. We will return.
