Good place for informal lunch with colleagues & visitors

Nicely decorated interior, and there's also seating out on the patio during the summer months. Food and service are always good. And it's great to have a place that can do separate checks. My personal favorite: BurgerMania on Mondays :-)

I always get the lobster roll and a wine spritzer- great after a long drive- Hits the spot--the hambergers get a good review. The place is in a old house but is very cozy. very bar like- they also have a outdoor patio- If the weather is bad they do a very active bar business.

I love this place. It has a great variety on the menu. The place is a local's favorite, for good reason. Everyone that works there is friendly and provides a great experience. The drinks are superb. Great variety of draft beers and an extensive wine list. Try the Wine Loft upstairs to expand your wine enjoyment. Near the beach, but... More

Good service and food. Been around a while. EXCELLENT wine selection! May have a wait. Some tables are up a New England style staircase (steep and narrow). If stairs are a problem for you, wait for downstairs seating.

Very disappointing meal. Waitress was miserable, ice tea tasted like it was brewed weeks ago. My son ordered steak fajitas and they were served dripping in grease. The steak was of the lowest quality. He couldn't eat a bite. My lobster roll was edible but nothing special. It was served with lay's potato chips and pickle. We all agreed it... More

Lunch on a Wednesday: We were seated at a tiny table near the bar, as the booths near the front were all taken. Very noisy - bartender had a loud, piercing voice, to be heard over all the other noises - making conversation difficult. Our table was wobbly and we had to figure out a way to stop it. Server...

My family and I had a great dinner. Pleasantly surprised. This ain't your old Widow Fletcher's restaurant. Lots to choose from and great burgers and drinks too.

Based on reviews we stopped in this past Saturday night. The 401 was very busy due to the great weather weekend and the only table left was in the sports bar area. After being seated we waited more than 10 minutes before the bartender asked if we wanted anything. We should have known with the only bartender waiting on tables... More

We ate here this past weekend out on the deck. It was great to sit outside, eat, and relax in the beautiful weather. The beer selection was pretty good and the food selection was as well. The burger and chicken sandwich we had were bit pretty good. The bacon wrapped scallop appetizer, however, was awful. I am not one to... More

Been in numerous times. Always leave thinking "Why do we keep coming back?" It's not that it's terrible here, because we do go back....the food is just so-so. Expensive for what you get. Their menu never changes and it's all just the same ingredients on something different. I do love the inside of this place however! I love the dark,... More
