Service is always extremely nice and courteous. Never had a bad meal and I've been at least a dozen times over the years. Stuffed shrimp and prime rib surf and turf is my fav!

We ate on the bar side. Our waitress was also the bartender and the only person we saw while we were there. The service was a bit slow, she definitely needed more help that day. Food was very good and prices are reasonable. Will return.

This place just keeps getting better every time we eat there. We are fortunate that it is close to home. It's worth the ride and there are nice little shops in walking distance.

We love this restaurant and visit it quite frequently. Their Whacky Wednesday menu offers a prime rib or steak combo with several side choices for $22. Comes with soup bar and salad. Great value. Regular menu selections are varied and I usually order off that menu. I've enjoyed their shrimp scampi, interesting chicken dishes and appetizers. Staff is friendly and... More

We have eaten here many, many times. Have always had a spectacular meal. The staff are extremely friendly and efficient. The portions are huge and always perfectly cooked. Try the mussels on the appetizer menu.... They could be an entire meal by themselves!!!! 5 Stars!!!

seafood is a large part of the menu. We eat here quite often and are never disappointed. The haddock hommard is one of my favorite items on the menu. The chef loves to use lobster and is always coming up with consistanly delicious specials
