We were in town for a 1:00 show at the Hanover Theater and we were interested in getting lunch beforehand. The parking lot behind the restaurant was crowded but there was no wait and we got a very roomy booth for 5. The server was pleasant and she absolutely worked with us to ensure we made it to the show... More

The food here is always good and they have a great selection. Great apps including fried pickles and my FAVORITE: fried Brussels sprouts - yum! They also have tons of beer choices. If you are looking for a quiet place to enjoy your meal, don't expect it here after 4 PM. The atmosphere is loud, boisterous and fun! You sometimes... More

I visited this restaurant twice during my 5-day stay in Worcester. I liked everything - the interior, the food, the service. Will not miss it during my next trip to Worcester!

This is definitely one those places embedded in the culture of a city. It's an establishment. The food was really good, but service was poor. We were told the restaurant was suffering a shortage of drink menus, so our entire table had to share...seriously. Our waiter just sucked in general in terms of attentiveness and customer service.

This place seated us quickly and service was very good. The menu is huge so it would satisfy a wide variety of tastes.

My husband and I went here with our parents. They have off street parking in the back and friendly hostess and waitresses. We ordered wings and nachos to start and the nachos were HUGE! Great toppings. Perfect to split with a large group of friends. We all tried something different; pasta, steaks and seafood. All entrees were very tasty but... More

Thursday afternoon met friends for drinks and appetizers. Service was excellent and waitress was very pleasant. It is always a very busy place but worth the wait if you have too.

Excellent food, great folks, very good service. Skip the steamah's...kitchen staff needs to get back to basics on proper cleaning and purging of the clams before steaming. Something more creative on the steaming would be nice....another local establishment steams in Sam Adams beer and minced "gahlic". Nice touch. Didn't appreciate several times biting into grit and all the mud in... More

Five of us had the soup and meatball parmesan sandwich. Both were very good and a great bargain at just under $8. Other entres were also very good. Four people ordered the quesadillas and did not like their selection. We had one server for 14 people and she was excellent. Lunch menu had excellent pricing, dinner seemed a little higher... More
