This restaurant has a great atmosphere. We enjoy eating on the bottom floor with the fire in the winter. We were disappointed to see that they made this more of a sitting area. The menu doesn't offer alot of choice and the steaks are not consistently good. The service is typically very slow... read more

Not sure which 'Steakhouse Selection' I had, but it was ... GOD-AWFUL. Just to confirm, I had my wife taste it. She'll eat anything. She said it was definitely ... off. As in ... gone by. As in ... inedible. Never mind, that it chewed like leather. On the plus side, I sent it back without incident. The service was... More

We stopped here on our way back from a skiing trip and were pleasantly surprised . The décor is most interesting and the service friendly and efficient. I had the onion soup which was excellent and the fish and chips which was really well cooked in great batter,, My partner had the chowder which she loved and the duck melt... More

My son and his family took me here for dinner while my husband was in the hospital. My hamburger, which I ordered medium rare, was so overdone it would have bounced off the floor. The sweet potato fries were soggy. That wasn't, the worst. What they claimed to be maple syrup was really corn syrup. When I called the manager... More

Loved the mussels in cream garlic and wine sauce! Salads were good, and the burgers were quite good! The old Popsicle stock mill was really cool, and the ambience was nice. I did not like my drinks tho. Ordered a blood orange martini, which I have had other places, this one seemed like it was mostly vodka without a lot... More

Our group of 57 people had dinner at Foster's. The restaurant is located in an old wood mill - interesting building. Foster's is part of "The Common Man" restaurants. I was concerned, initially, that they had a central bar where guests had to go to get their drinks. Most restaurants take orders at the table and then serve the drinks.... More

Stopped in for lunch during the summer and the atmosphere is rustic, it is an old mill. The menu has some good choices my dining partner had the duck sandwich and I had the nachos. Drinks were good and wait staff attentive without being too intrusive. Overall good experience, will have to try it for dinner sometime.

Just stopped in because this looked like it should be good. The restaurant is in an old lumber mill with a great atmosphere. The food was great and the wait staff was fast efficient and friendly. A great experience.
