We went to Nolans on Monday the 13th as a spur of the moment diner out for my girlfriends birthday. We sat in the atrium part of the dining room which was pleasant on the sunny afternoon. Deb had the Rueben sandwich and I had a burger. We were pleased with both. Our server was also good. The only negative... More

This restaurant was recommended by our B and B host. We arrived and were seated by a non descript hostess. Our server was friendly and informative. My husband ordered the Absolut shrimp and scallop and I ordered the Riesling festival chicken. Both were excellent. We decided to have a Caesar salad instead of the house salad. The Caesar was passable... More

We arrived late, without a reservation and were made to feel welcome. Wonderful local wines which they helped us find for home. Great food and an amazing grape pie! Will return often.

This was a very pleasant and welcome surprise. Drinks at the bar were prepared like real drinks should be; muddled for real. Three of the four of us had the special steak AU poivre. The fourth had the scallops Asiago. We were all pleased with our meals. Desserts all around because, after all, it was someone's birthday! Two of us... More

Four of us shared a wonderful meal with excellent service. We were running late and when we called, they said they could easily accommodate a later reservation and it was a Saturday! We were seated shortly after our arrival - a half hour later than our first reservation and it was a busy night. Three of us had filet mignon... More

Very good food. We have been for a couple XMAS parties and the Lobster and Steak special was fantastic and at a reasonable price. We also go there when we go out to eat at other times during the year. Very good variety on the menu. We have always been very satisfied when we left.

Really, Nolan's?!? Last night, my family and I ate at Nolan's to celebrate my birthday. We made a reservation for 7:15, and stood in a hot, crowded bar area for 45 minutes before being seated-- a fact for which there is absolutely NO excuse. After 30 minutes of uncomfortable waiting, we were offered some free drinks. Needless to say, it... More

This is one of the very best restaurants I've ever been too. The atmosphere, employees, and owners are always wonderful. I will always recommend Nolan's to all my friends and anyone else who asks for a great meal. Never a disappointment here. As I read some of these reviews I can't help but think what on earth is wrong with... More
