Pricey & spicy

We ended up at Shepherd's Pie because this was the only restaurant open on a Sunday in January (my birthday). Although our seat in the window was drafty and cold, the overall atmosphere was pleasant. Great bar! We asked for a sample of a beer on tap and waited almost 20 minutes before it finally... read more

I used to love it here but since they removed their delicious fish and chips everything on here is just incredibly spicy. I mean like a 9 or 10 hot. The red pepper dip inedible and the side dishes too. Great cocktails and atmosphere bit please lighten up on the scorch factor.

I'll start by saying that the food was good but not great. It was way too salty for everyone at the table. My medium burger was made of good quality meat but too thick, charred on the outside and rare on the inside. With the bun I couldn't even fit it in my mouth (and I have a big mouth).... More

I'm a big fan of all of chef Brian Hill's restaurants which include Francine and Seabright, both in Camden, and Rockport's Shepherd's Pie. On this particular Monday evening my husband and I were exhausted and debating what to do for dinner. Shepherd's Pie seemed like a good option and we were able to sneak in and grab seats the bar...

I have eaten here so many times and never had a complaint. Our waiter got the drink order wrong, it sat on the table without him checking back in when I sent it back and was concerned maybe I would like a glass of wine seeing he had waited so long and dinner should be showing up soon. He was... More

I really had high hopes when I stepped into the restaurant since it's located inside a good looking old building, but was greatly disappointed by their way overcooked and funny taste burger. I suspect there's something wrong with the meat - mostly likely not entirely beef. In addition to the food itself, the service was pretty poor - I had... More

Tremendous meal. I would give 5 stars but the hosting was a bit lacking today. With a booking in place I would at least expect a warm welcome rather than 10 minutes standing by the door wondering what was going on. Very busy evening.... But when we got to our table there were four others around ours which were empty,... More

I don't know why I was surprised, this restaurant came highly recommended. My husband suggested this place and I was skeptical. Some other restaurants were also recommended and they were just ok! Our dinner was superb. I had the scallops dinner with tons of large scallops! One of the best scallop dinners Ive had in years! We also had the... More

I hate to provide a negative review, but our experience was not a positive one. A side dish of macaroni & cheese was sour, as in curdled milk, and after one bite we asked that it be retrieved. When we politely noted this, the server response was, "We don't comp dishes". This was quite a disappointing answer to what was... More
