Visited on two occasions. After the first I spent the day feeling unwell. After the second my friend spent a day feeling unwell. Food is so average. Avoid the pesto chicken it is drowning in oil.

We were there for lunch and had an outstanding salad bar. Adam, our waiter, made everything even better with terrific service. Looking at the menu, dinner would be equally good. And, the wine list is outstanding. Nice ambiance rounds out a really nice experience.

The salad bar was good, bacon wrapped scallops were excellent. My daughter's boyfriend and I ordered the stuffed haddock which also was good. My wife and daughter ordered the petite cut sirloin. They asked for it to be cooked medium with little blood showing. My wife mentioned that she was having trouble cutting her steak. My daughter also mentioned that... More

We chose the Windjammer because of its location near our hotel. They take reservations via OpenTable, which is very convenient. We enjoyed a lovely meal, with traditional steak house offerings including a very delicious and super fresh salad bar. All meals include the salad bar. Very large place but seems to fill up quickly so reservations necessary. Extensive wine list... More

Returned for the first time in 30 years! Wasn't sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised by an extensive gluten free menu with plenty of options. The salad bar is incredible! So pleased to see the croutons off in a separate area as well as all of the gluten free salad dressings labeled. We were there with a party of 12.... More

We were there on Mother's day weekend and it was extremely busy but we had reservations and were seated on time. The steaks we had were perfectly cooked. The wine list is excellent. The waiter was attentive and friendly. The temperature of the room was too warm for me. I would definitely go back to this restaurant.

Plenty of options, with a gluten menu included. Entrees include a starch side and the salad bar so it is a good deal for fresh fare. Service was a bit slow but that was on account of multiple colleges having graduation weekend and a few local proms taking place.

I am a local. This is always a go to restaurant because the food is consistently excellent. The salad bar and fresh bread are abundant. Whether it is beef or fish that catches your eye you will not be disappointed. Reservations do not happen so you take your chance . Upstairs bar is loud so its not a place for... More

A superb salad and bread bar. Surprisingly very good New England clam chowder (and I know being a native Bostonian) and always consistently good food. Nothing here is super fancy but the menus will have something for everyone knowing you had an excellent meal at a good price. Eat downstairs for a quieter atmosphere or upstairs the bar for a...

The Windjammer was always our family place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and special events. Over the past few years, we've noticed a decrease in quality of the food, drinks, service, and salad bar, which is disappointing. Their main seating area is a little dated but the auxiliary dining room (in the back) feels like you're back in the 90s, complete... More
