Made an on-line reservation for six for dinner prior to the UCONN women's basketbal game. Received an email confirmation for the reservation. Showed up for dinner and were told that they didn't have a reservation for us. I showed the hostess the email confirmation on my phone and she said she would go speak to the manager. She left and...

Haven't been there for anything other than the brunch, so my review is specific to that. This is not a huge place but it is hugely popular for Sunday brunch (probably because of the groupon/living social offers?). Make a reservation or be prepared for a wait, especially in the summer - although outdoor seating in the warm months adds much... More

Stopped in here on a Sunday afternoon while waiting to take ferry home. Food was fine but the service was terrible. When we walked in I noticed what appeared to be the kitchen workers sitting at the bar. Not a good sign. Our table was dirty, our waiter didn't know what beer they had. He never checked in on us...

We arrived via Metro North from NYC we did not know where to go. We love exploring so we walked around to find most of the restaurants closed on a Sunday, we walked by and saw the restaurant serving so let's try it. I recommend the steak and eggs and the egg frittata, we recommend 100%.

The food is good but the mimosas are great. The waitor we had wasn't friendly, but the place is small and can get loud. I would recommend this place to people. Its great for bridgeport

This place is waaaay overpriced. I went for lunch with some colleagues from work. Two of us ordered the beet and goat cheese salad. It cost $13 each so you would expect something substantial or at least something bigger than the size of what you would normally call a side salad. The salad consisted of about two beets on top...

The food here was good. Pub food, but pub food that is well prepared and a step up from what you would find at a chain restaurant. I will eat here again when I come back. I had the burger and wings, my guest had the crab cakes and it was all good.

We stopped by this place for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The food - a jerked chicken sandwich and a salad - was average; perfectly edible, but by no means memorable. The best part of the meal was the homemade potato chips. However, the experience was tarnished by simply awful service. Even though the place was virtually empty... More

The place is good and deal on grouppn would of been great if the take it during Easter Sunday. I didn't read anything in the fine print that said not valid during holiday which made the experience disappointing.
