No hostess to be seen while waiting for a seat, then had to wait to order a beer, waited to get it, waited for menu, then really long time to get it, then didn't see them at all so didn't even ask for ketchup, the woman was too busy talking to some girl, then waited for a check. Food frozen... More

Service was extremely slow, perhaps some more wait staff would help. I had the Lobster roll which was well camouflaged with way too much lettuce and diced tomato. (DICED TOMATO ON A LOBSTER ROLL???) On a positive note, we didn't have to do any dishes which is part of the reason we went out on a Friday night after a... More

Met friends recently and dined outdoors on small patio. Haven't been back here since West Street closed and then reopened. We all ordered the same dish so it was hard to judge the ragne of items on the menu. We all had the muscles in wine sauce. Plenty of muscles (though they were a bit on the small side) and... More

This is clearly a locals' place - contractors with contractor trucks in the lot, also couples of all ages, families with children. It has a nice ice beer selection, and a surprisingly charming outdoor deck tucked behind the building. The food is much better than a typical local spot- some truly delicious items. Also the staff are very welcoming.

I wonder why it takes me so long to get back. If you want that "Cheers" kind of atmosphere, this is where to go. Parking can be a bear. But persevere, and enjoy the food of normal people... who eat well. Sweet Potato fries bring me in the door, the sauce they put on their sirloin tips is plate lickingly... More

It's small but someone in the kitchen is making delicious food. Had the cod which had a light panko crust, served over crisp green beans with a side of roasted potatoes. Very nice presentation with a sort of oil and balsamic drizzle around the plate. Very tasty and fresh. Friend had the fish stew which she really enjoyed. We will... More

Definition of a neighborhood restaurant. You feel friendly and at home. Some dishes are great. Others less so. Some days are better than other. Just like home.

The fried green beans were great. We had the fish and chips as well as the steak tips. They are known for their steak tips and it's for a reason. Tender, flavorful and plentiful! The fish n chips were also tasty. Large order, plenty to eat. The service is excellent. It has a small town feel that you often miss... More
