Four of us had dinner on a Sunday night. The service and food far exceeded expectations. The restaurant is family-run and they take great pride in what they offer. And it shows! The owner took time to introduce himself personally and let us see into the kitchen. It was impeccably clean and everything was super fresh. Don't miss this place... More

Well, I really can't give you a review on the food or the décor because we were turned away at the door. Four really hungry people looking for a good steak. The hostess attempted to put us all at a table for two and when I asked her "Really 4 people at a deuce" she stammered and said that she... More

Both Val and I had rare "baseball" sirloins and they were done perfectly as expected but the real surprise was the sides. We had spaghetti-thin asparagus spears that were hot and crunchy -- how did the chef [who is young] do that? And I had sweet potato fries that were very hot, firm [none of the usual limp stuff] and... More

I had dinner with my wife on a Thursday night. I had the chicken cordon bleu and she had the chopped steak. Both of our meals were excellent. The service was very good. Final cost only $45 plus tax and tip. The cost is on par with outher restaurants in the area and the casual atmosphere was OK.

After reading reviews thought this would be a great place for out of state visitors.What an embarrasment. Salad arrives being less than a half cup of store bought mixed bagged salad. Hamburgers for kids dry &tasteless. Who puts asparagus with a fried clam sandwich? Salmon was OK but the steak was tough.And I guess asparagus goes with all the meals.Small... More

The ribeye was very tough, but the NY strip was decent. The wine was good and the service was really good. The atmosphere was a bit too casual for a steakhouse.

A friend recommended this location for dinner on our visit in the Bethel, Maine area. After reading previous reviews i was wary. THIS WAS SIMPLY WONDERFUL! We selected Prime Rib and Filet Mignon which was served cooked to specification. It was absolutely DELICIOUS and the serving portions were very generous. The wait staff were friendly and informative . Business was... More

This place was an unexpected pleasure! This is a ski area, so we didn't know what to expect off-season. early on Sunday evening (mother's day), hardly anyone there, but tried it anyway. Food was delicious!! Crabcakes some of the best I've ever had. Steaks wonderfull and cooked perfectly. Service exceptional and friendly. MUST STOP!!!!

The mix of ratings is a bit of a surprise. My wife and I stopped here for lunch with another couple and were very pleased. The service was prompt and pleasant from the time we arrived. Everyone's food was very good, from the fish and chips to the haddock chowder to the lunch special (turkey and Swiss). The décor on... More
