Disappointed

The burgers are still great but the price went up while the portion size went down. Same with the sweet potato fries. We probably will not return anytime soon.

Summer has no place more relaxing than dining outdoors under the tent at Apricot's. Food is consistent and excellent; upscale creative and satisfying--nothing silly here. We visit a lot and probably linger longer than we should. It's just so mellow. Inside is great, too, on a rainy day and in the wintertime. Try the gazpacho, crab cakes.

We frequent thus restaurant at last three to four times a month. The staff remembers your preferences and always tries to meet expectations. We did have one afternoon when the lobster roll didn't meet expectations. They immediately made sure I had a different selection or they were going to deduct it from the check. I love this restaurant. Staff is... More

We met friends there and started off trying to order wine. Not a great wine list and the first bottle I ordered they didn't have and the second was a year newer. The food was good but nothing special to make me return.

Eating at the pub is better and cheaper. Wait staff is blah. Place needs a makeover big time. Decent food. Great piano playing.
