Had a few breakfasts and dinner - the food was very good - the dining room is quaint. The service is good. Great way to meet your fellow travellers.

Utterly disappointing . Although we had a reservation we felt that they were surprised to see us and we did not feel terribly welcome. Food was over cooked (sadly including the lobster and crab) and pedestrian. Ordered a turkey dinner and the stuffing was basically...More

Totally average experience. Not many options, so it's a fine one for a night in Trinity. Stick to the classics (I got crab legs) instead of anything special or too far flung.
