This place has MANY TVs so for sport events it's awesome. We had drinks two nights here and dinner one night. The food is good but not out of this world. The personalities of the staff and the cozy setting are what really makes this...More

Be awhile, TO LONG, since we`ve been here. Forgot how good this place is. The seafood chowder as an opener, only begins a great meal. Desi only seems to improve this tavern. No wonder a reservation is for the most part, needed.

Enjoyed a great dinner after a long drive from NY. The seafood chowder was filled with fish and lobster, the service was friendly and attentive, and the drinks were generous. The tavern was comfortable and the food came out at a good pace.

The Ruben sandwich was huge and yummy but the lobster grilled cheese was AMAZING!!!! The fish chowder was loaded with seafood too. The Buffalo wing mac n cheese was nice and spicy. The service was great and it was kid friendly.

I have been here several times. The service is excellent. My favorite is eating upstairs. Very clean and the food is always good. I have never had a bad meal here.
