Very cool low key place. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Had the Hot turkey dinner special, it was delicious. Place seems to have lots of locals and regulars, which I find is always a good thing.

We eat here regularly with family and friends. Good variety of sandwiches and varying specials. Highly recommend the steak tips and the (seasonal) lobster roll. Friendly atmosphere and can accommodate a large party.

Took my wife and our 7 year old here two weeks ago. Great spot and a very homey feel to the place. All of our meals were great and the staff was fantastic. If we lived closer this would be a weekly stop!
