Great prime rib

One of the few places open when the power went out on the island. Prime rib was tender, juicy and flavorful. Service was good considering how busy they were.

quaint tavern with excellent service and good food. I tried the pot roast sandwich that was a little dry but tasty. Very good assortment of beers available. Service could not have been better.

We actually ate twice here and thought the food was good. They were very accommodating to our group which included two children under age 7.

A great fine, casual dining experience! Their pot roast is the signature meal you MUST try. And for dessert the Creme Brule.
