Ended up eating here after trying to eat at Tweeds without a reservation. We were seated immediately. It was a Saturday night and they had live music. Sort of nice. Place was clean. Cornbread was good. Salmon was yummy. Husband did not enjoy the short ribs or the sauce they were served in. Staff was attentive.

Decent food but loud. Service is lacking sincerity. Snotty bar tender, not professional at all. Rushed service. There is far better pla:es. Try Justins near Carrier Circle.

I got roped into eating at this place with two friends who are Farm to Table , and Gluten Free fans. Generally...these restaurants are a dissapointment to my Completely-Self-Admitted,Uncultured-Palette. I always end up paying 75$ for sawdust on a mystery green thing, and a crappy cocktail...ugh. But I love my friends, and I just eat a yogurt when I get... More

Always love the food here! Gluten free choices and never disappoints! Consistent and flavorful. Very American menu... I would come here every week if this were closer to home

Here was a last minute place for us on July 4th Weekend, the tap beer was good a local brew. The Lobster roll was unauthentic and tasted like cat food. The Mac And Cheese that my daughter had was pretty good. the most amazing part of the meal was the strawberry soup infused with a basil-like sauce. It was memorable... More

This historic building houses a fun trendy restaurant with lots of details from decades past- like the bar is made from a 1920's local bowling alley. Menu is great with lots of interesting selections. Service was very good-attentive and professional. Parking is not as hard as it seems, just go around back to the municipal lot and walk thru the...

I came with a large party celebrating a friend's birthday, and it was a pleasant experience. The food was good, the ambience was pleasant, and the restaurant itself was cozy (not too big, not too small). The service was a bit slow, and our server did have an issue (she mixed up 2 different orders of steak, switched the sides... More

This is my second time back while traveling on business. I had a savory roasted shrimp bisque, a garden salad with field greens, baby spinach, roasted red beets adorned with a french Vinaigrette and crumbled gorgonzola. The steak was tender and flavorful. I can hardly wait for dessert- egg nog creme brûlée! The service is great and the atmosphere casual.... More

Only reason it got 2 stars is the gluten free calamari saved it from a 1 star, calamari is terrific. The rest of the evening was terrible, salads are not fresh over dressed in vinegar with no seasoning and frozen recooked ingredients. Over priced for the quality and quantity of food and wine. The staff was great, other than that?... More
