We hosted an event for 50+ people using the lounge area and the private dining room. We were able to customize the menu and work closely with the staff at the Living Room. Our guests raved about the food (definitely recommend opting for the seafood station) and the service was fabulous. The atmosphere is good for a nice intimate event.

We hosted an event here recently for 30+ people and the space was very accommodating. We had a mix of couches and high top tables reserved and it gave a very relaxed and casual feel. We had passed apps and they were delicious, we ate until we couldn't eat anymore. Also, the servers/bartenders were very friendly and outgoing but not... More

Food was as good as it gets from a frozen tv dinner into a microwave. Fish and chips was a decent piece of fish with 4 french fries. Yes, 4 ff's. Calamari was like a rubber ball. I can't rate the service because there wasn't any. Never saw the waitress after they brought the food. They did show up to... More

We clearly missed on two counts: Server obviously did not check on your table to see how everything was, and neither did the manager. Had that happened, we would have "comped" the calamari if you were unhappy about it. I do have to defend one count - we do not use microwave ovens because we are a "scratch" kitchen, and... More

Had a great brunch. Great service and location. Loved the menu and everything we had was great!! They even have outdoor dining. I highly recommend the corn, salads and lobster.

Had lunch here on a hot summer weekend, probably not their prime time as it seemed like more of a drinking/sports bar/party spot. Having said that, lunch was really good. Hubby had a burger and fries and I had lobster roll. Good service, tasty food.

We used to love it - now we stay away. Service is poor, food is costly but not tasty. There are so many better places to choose.
