Ordered sirloin tips & they were awesome. Staff is very nice. Would have preferred to sit on the deck, but it was full. Laid-back atmosphere in a former horse barn. Would definitely go back again.

Eight of us Navy buddies met for a Monday lunch, and I have to say they left us alone to reminisce and enjoy each others company for a couple of hours. We were in an enclosed porch area that could have been someone's tired rec room. The tables were pretty basic, and come to think of it decor throughout. First... More

Having eaten here several times.... It's for solid food and service. My meals have always been good and well prepared, if not inspired. Their mushroom caps are a standout, fish and steaks are always good. On busy nights service cab be a little slow. Outside deck available.

My husband and I ate here last Thursday. We have been there before an loved it. The food was great and I couldn't believe how reasonable the prices where. The waitress was the best. She was very social and professional. I wish I could recall her name because she deserves recognition. We plan to return this Wed. for dinner. We... More

Okay this place was just okay I ordered a meatball sub..they offered it with cheddar I wanted mozzarella and had to settle for provolone which I like but was just okay for the meatball sub. The meatballs were a bit small and there was only four of them and could have had more. My husband had salmon and that as... More

We stopped here for lunch because I wanted clams. Upon arriving we had to walk a lot of stairs (handicap ramp accessible) to get to the door. The place is 2 levels and looks a little run down. When we entered, we were greeted promptly and asked if we wanted to sit in the bar or dining area. We chose... More

We are Old Sturbridge Village members and frequent the area. We dined at Admiral TJ O'Brien's three times since December. The food is good. Interesting specials and great seafood options.We dined for lunch and for diner. The evening vibe is fun and busy. Lunch is a relaxed atmosphere, not crowded. The property is outdated but think bar and it is... More

Local bar/restaurant with great food and bartender who knows how to make a drink (not stingy with the alcohol). Reasonably priced with well portioned platters. Was there with my husband but saw many families with children come in.
