Great Restaurant in Lynn

Came here with my fiancé to celebrate our anniversary. I ordered the chicken with mash potatoes and spinach, it was delicious. My favorite was the bread with the maple butter and the creme brûlée, these two were to die for! Yummmyyyyy! Will definitely go back here and try out their other meals :)

Every time I come here I am reminded how good this place is. It is a local restaurant with fine food. The burgers are wonderful having been selected Bostons best burger year after year in the burger festival. Appetizers are diverse and interesting- great hummus.Main courses are creative and well cooked.

This restaurant serves food that is Boston quality. Nestled in the center of Lynn, the menu is innovative and delicious. Visiting with another couple, we began with the baked Brie appetizer. Accompanied with dried fruit and mixed greens drizzled with balsamic vinegar, the flavors blended together to create a sensational taste. This dish is served with toasted bread. The bread... More

Never disappointed! I have had a great meal here every time. I love that Lynn has a restaurant that people from other towns travel to eat at. A total GEM!

Real pro's behind the bar. Packed on a Saturday night on the way to a concert at the Lynn Auditorium. Didn't dine on this visit. Great spot.

The burgers are signature dishes! The food that did arrive was poor ,... More

The best burgers on the planet? Well they're not called 'Sin Burgers' for nothing. Make it rare - just so juicy and tender - and don't feel guilty enjoying the Rosemary-infused French fries. Utterly delicious. But you will need to book ahead - it gets busy even before the weekend has started. It's on Oxford St in Lynn hence the... More
