This dark horse is a winner!

My husband and I celebrated his birthday with a delicious dinner, pleasant guitarist in the background, and a gracious waitress. The menu is varied enough to please both a vegetarian and a steak lover and the homemade corn bread is moist and just enough to complement a salad. We have been to this... read more

I ordered the flounder special, the few bites of it that were on my plate taste good but it was on very small filet (not enough) for dinner or the price. Other members of our party had bison burgers that they enjoyed. Another friend had the chicken pasta Alfredo it was just ok and the portion was small. I rarely... More

We were going to this restaurant to hear the performer appearing there and I am so happy we did! The menu is fantastic with something for everyone. I had the Vegetable Dieci Strati which was delicious! My husband had the Chicken Fried Chicken which was phenomenal. We shared the brownie dessert with coconut ice cream. The brownie was good,but the... More

This is a small, clean and well run restaurant in an otherwise lonely little town on the East End of Long Island. Food is good and the prices are not exorbitant.

We had a coupon for this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised with the atmosphere. Very pleasant restaurant. The entertainment was great too (music from the 60's to 80's) I had short ribs that were to die for. Price was right,entertainment was great, atmosphere was pleasing and great food.

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
