This was our first time there. We had been driving for a long time and were starving and just happened to stop here. We had a good experience. We sat at the bar and the service was excellent. The woman working at the bar was great!! The meal was really good, too. They packed a ton of food on the... More

If the wait is too long across the street, try this. Good haddock and chowder. Reasonable prices. Nice inexpensive Sunday Brunch. Tour bus stop.

My boyfriend and I only get one date night a month because he works so much so we figured we would go back to the same place that was good the previous time. However, this experience was different. We were seated and it took 20 minutes for our waitress to come over to take our drink order. She left for... More

I went to Bull n Claw for dinner with 2 others this past Sunday. It was my second time eating there, and I asked for the same server we had the first time since Amelia was so great then. Not only did she greet us as though she was seeing old friends she actually remembered what we ordered before! Amelia... More

We stopped in and wanted a light dinner. I was excited to the ad for $12.99 for their "giant shrimp cocktail with 12 shrimp". With the salad bar, this would be a perfect meal. I got the $3.49 salad/soup bar with my shrimp and hubby did the same with his large app mussels fra diavlo. I had a half cup... More

The service was very pleasant and attentive. The food on the other hand was blah. Mashed potatoes from a box? My kid could make them better! Glazed carrots! Not! The prime rib was ok, a little tough. The only thing I thought was worth a dollar was the blueberry crumb. Atmosphere is a throwback to the 80's. I dont know... More

I read all these reviews expecting a great meal. I actually had toake sure I was in the right place. The 80s decor threw me at first but I actually found it kind of charming after a few. The salad bar was good but the soup is canned Progresso soup. Ordered the prime rib and it was cooked perfectly but... More

Stephanie was wonderful. She had a great sense of humor and was very attentive. Our food was brought out promptly and she made sure we had everything we needed.

The service was great, attentive and friendly. Unfortunately the food was not so great. The shrimp cocktail appetizer was the best part of the meal and it was nothing special. Things went downhill from there. The steak, while cooked properly, was not marinated or seasoned at all. It was also very fatty and flavorless. The stuffed shrimp was terrible. The... More

My husband and I ordered crab legs and steak for dinner. The meal was very good. The steak was tender and cook the way we orders it, however it was Luke warm when it arrived at the table. The crap legs were excellent, juice, sweet and tender. The service was slow and the waitress needed reminders we needed refills on... More
