Easter is always the usual search for family brunch/dinner out. My Brother and sister in law frequent this place and I must say I was not expecting much when they said we were going to downtown Lynn. We were a party of eight including 2 young boys and sat at 2 4 tops back to back. Reservations were made ahead... More

We had a party of six with reservations for 8:30 p.m. When we got there, we were told that our table would be ready shortly. After waiting 20 minutes and being told that the people were going to leave soon, we decided enough was enough. We left and felt ignored and disappointed. Crowded, loud and very impersonal.

I've been there twice and I'm still undecided about the food, but I like the place. Location isn't great but there's usually plenty of parking and the bar is nice with great drinks. The first time I was there they ran out of their rave burgers, so i had a pasta dish which was good. The rest of our party... More

A hidden gem in Lynn. You should go early as crowds are attracted. I particularly like the various steak dishes and the fresh bread/butter brought out is just fabulous.

I love everything about this restaurant. The service is amazing (Dan, our server...the best). Started with a cucumber infused martini (once again Dan, amazing!) Lobster tacos for the appetizer (Oh My God...in heaven) and then the mushroom raviolis (sooooo good) finished with a lemoncello and vodka and a cheesecake. Can not even begin to say how amazing the food and... More

We visited the Blue Ox recently with another couple and it was terrific as usual. Three of us had the Halibut special and the other meal (Cod) was also great. The girls had wine which hit the spot while the men ordered manhattans. Our waitress Effie suggested we try their home made manhattans and if we didn't like them she... More
