A bit pricy, but there was also cheaper alternatives like hamburger. The deal of the day was $ 20, a surf 'n' turf dish that tasted very good! Nice waitress.

We had a lovely dinner at the 95 Ocean. We were staying at the Nonantum and rain showers helped make our decision to "eat-in" which turned out the be a very good choice. My wife had a lazy man's lobster (which was on special on Tuesday). The lobster was excellent with tender lobster meat and just enough stuffing. I had... More

We just got back from a lunch-time party to celebrate my mother-in-law's 70th birthday, and I can't say enough about the experience at the Nonantum. The room was beautifully decorated and laid out, the views of the grounds and river spectacular, and the food was exceptional. In fact, many of our guests commented that they had never had such good... More

Went to the restaurant and had haddock-good fish, but overbreaded and Sauces, Prime Rib, done as we asked, medium-rare and Rack of Lamb. All good food. We also enjoyed the music, a fold duo, a little too loud, but our fault as they asked if we wanted the audio turned down, and we said no.
