This is a favorite for the family. We all love the steaks, they have great fish specials. A little loud when crowded.

..and good food!! Stopped here on a very busy Sunday night and found the food and service to be very good in spite of the restaurant being completely full. We will stop again when we are in the area.

Food and service were very good...BUT the noise level was incredibly high and décor was nothing special...wait-staff were friendly and efficient, food was quite tasty, especially the soup! and yes, steak was good too but again, nothing special.

Great food. Love their endless warm bread they serve. Fabulous cream of chicken soup and french onion soups! It is a bit noisy when busy, otherwise the ambiance is warm and inviting. Very friendly and helpful servers. You won't be sorry!

A Friday night dinner with a large group and the food was excellent, especially the New England Clam Chowder. The Fettucine Alfredo with shrimp was perfect and a huge serving. The only problem is that the noise level is such that it is difficult to talk to the person right next to you at the table!
