“Nice place to eat with friends. Food is very good, people are nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. Four of us attended. We had fried clams- very good, huge platefull, Two of us had the prime rib- very good. Last was scallops- very good and nice size portion. Food was excellent, waitress was very friendly and attentive. It was a quiet night, only 6 or 7 other tables filled in our section. Price is down to earth, I wouldn't call it cheap. It is well worth the money.

“great food, attentive and friendly staff, good food value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

I have frequented this restaurant on several ocassions . Food has always been fresh, fairly well presented and ample portions . Breakfast, lunch and dinner and Charlie and his lady have something for everyone. Charlie has been in the restaurant business in the eastern CT area since the 70's. He and this attentive staff work hard to please every customer.A diner, restaurant surely will not dissapoint.

“Perfect spot for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

My wife and I stopped in here after spending time walking around town and were famished. The service was excellent and the food was great as well. I had a tuna melt with fries and my wife had a pastrami sandwich with onion rings. The portion sizes are perfect and the prices are more than reasonable. We will be back again next time we are in town.

“Good value and pleasant experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Coming in at the end of the evening, our waitress and the rest of the staff were very gracious and let us take our time. I ordered the lobster which came with clams and mussels - at a very good price - and the best mashed potatoes and vegies I've had in a while. We also had the prime rib which was good. The service throughout the meal was excellent; I would turn the brightness of the lighting down just a bit.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Our parents recently took us here for dinner. Me and my husband had the lobster rolls and they are excellent. The fries and coleslaw that came with it were also very good. Our parents had the fried clams and they loved their meals as well.
