Beaujolais sauce was "off" and made my husband sick. Lobster bisque was frozen in lumps in parts and microwaved burned in others. No one to clear the tables and there were dirty dishes everywhere. Avoid this restaurant!

The food was excellent. I had the crab cakes - delicious. They offer 1/2 size portion and that was perfect for me since a full portion would have been much more than I could handle. There were 8 in our group. We had a separate room. The privacy was perfect for us. The service was excellent.

My family visited here last weekend after a football game. The staff was very welcoming and we had a very good waitress named Tasha. Tasha had lots of energy and knew the menu very well. She was a pleasure. The food was good. The desserts are even better. Melt in your mouth. Thanks for a great evening!

We enjoyed dinner on a Monday night and were pleasantly surprised with their steak dinner special along with draft beer specials. We have a delicious dinner and drinks for much less than it would cost any other night. We did pass on dessert but will be back on a Tuesday night when you get a slice of their super cakes... More

At dinner they provide table service. The lunch menu includes many options, including a variety of salads, sandwiches, appetizers, burgers, fried seafood dishes and homemade soups. The... More

I went here with my friends for lunch, and it was so good! We were seated as soon as we arrived, and our server was excellent. I ordered the crab cake entree, and it was everything and more. The crab was so fresh, and it wasn't filled with bread crumbs. Pure crab. For dessert, I had the lemon cake, and... More

Celebrated a friends birthday on September 1st at Nantucket. Upon entering the restaurant, my friend and I noticed a roach crawling on the floor near the bar area. We pointed out what we saw to the hostess and she walked over and stepped on the bug like it was a normal occurrence. From the moment we sat down, things went... More

My colleague and I enjoyed the service and food. We had the NANTUCKET SEAFOOD PASTA and found it delicious. We also had the cake and bread pudding for desert which was delicious. The service was excellent and prompt.
