The steak tips were overcooked and not enough for the price. The fish was cooked nicely and the bread was fresh with warm butter. I ordered "medium rare" steak tips and they arrived "well-done." Disappointed.

Love eating here. We always have a great time. Visiting with friends and neighbors while having a great meal. All our servers have always been very quick to make sure our drinks are full and our food is hot.

And the butternut squash salad, with cranberries, almonds, romaine, bacon bits and poppy dressing - worth the trip from Boston! Unsure what to have, just ask Renee, who is attentive but doesn't rush you. Best time is right before the 6.30ish crowd. Must do when...More

After a full morning of hiking we were looking for a nice hot meal and a cold beer. The lunch menu is fairly basic, but should have something for any taste. We both ordered the crab cake sandwiches. The portions were good and the roll...More
