Always a good meal! The best is when they have fried oysters! I highly recommend them, they do it the best.

I've been here a couple of times in the past months for group lunch/dinner. The food has been very good, the service has been excellent, and the prices are reasonable.

The food is wonderful. Prices are good. Bartenders are friendly and tend to all patrons equally. There are a lot of neighbor people which is comfortable not like you are an outsider.

So they took 3 store fronts and combined them into 1 restaurant. Very different, but intimate experience. Food is amazing, waitresses are great, and for two people with drinks it came to less than 70.00. I think it's a hidden secret to the people that live near downtown wallingford, shhhhhh

This used to be a better place. Last tine there the food was so-so, but the prices rivaled New Haven or Hartford. Not a good value.

The food is very expensive. The service is slow. The dining area is cramped which doesn't allow room for private conversations. The food was average in taste and value.
