I feel like the Hourly is a pretty dependable spot. Great cocktails, personable staff, pretty space and good food. A little pricey but not bad. The pepper crusted tuna BL(friend green)T was tasty, friend loved the oysters, no complaints. I'm surprised it's not packed every...More

I had the clam chowder and the Hourly burger. The portions were large and I ended up taking most of the fries home! Their cocktails were well made and the food was delicious. The restaurant was modern and clean, crowded but not too loud. A...More

Went here for lunch with my family (2 teen boys). They got oysters which were very good and reasonably priced. I got a burger and soup, which were also very tasty, but a bit overpriced in my opinion. The atmosphere was lovely with old photos...More

Mixed review. Fried clams were overcooked, over-used oil. However, the salmon was delicious, as was the sushi and the lobster Mac & cheese. 3 out of 4 thumbs up. Cute pub-like bar.

Love the room and love the bar (and bartender) but the food -- nyet. Lobster bisque nice did have lots of little bits of lobster but was overwhelmed with tarragon. Cajun fries, soft and where's the cajun? Crabcakes fell apart. Fish sliders contained a tablespoon...More

Visited here with my boyfriend on Thanksgiving this year. Staff were wonderful (despite working the holiday!) and the food was delicious. The goats cheese soufflé (from the thanksgiving menu) was absolutely delicious, and my boyfriend had the calamari starter which he raved about. Portion size...More

This restaurant is inviting and the menu looked good. When we were seated, the hostess put us in the very back, and was accommodating when we asked for one of the many open tables by the window. I had a fish sandwich which was flavorless...More

Parking options are very limited. My advice is to use Uber for transportation since parking places are hard to find. Regarding the waiting time it is better to make a reservation by calling the restaurant at... More
