“Not returning, Not recommending”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012 via Local Picks

Several friends had recommended this place to us to try out. We were not pleased what so ever. Our service was lousy and sporadic at best! Once our food actually came out, it was nothing to brag about. This was about a year ago and I think I had some sort of seafood medley...overcooked, too rich, and covered with greasy topping. Stomach felt unsettled for the remainder of the night.

“Good Choice in Bath”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

For the size of the place, it has an amazingly extensive menu of different cuisines. Our waitress was very friendly and added a lot of local color to our visit. We would definitely eat here again when staying in Bath.

“Nice place, good food on a cool fall day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Sat at the bar to start off, meet the owner & and a really nice bartender, so ate there. My husband had the prime rib which he's a expert on... and loved it! I had the seafood Alfredo which I could not finish(big portion) was good but not great. Would surely go back!

“Food is amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

The menu here is extensive and it was really hard to choose what to eat because everything sounded good and looked & smelled amazing on its way to the tables. The clients next to us were raving about their sandwiches. My companion had the lobster croissant...it was heavenly. I had the broccoli and swiss cheese quiche...it also did not disappoint. Highly recommend this place.

“Zippy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

As a vegetarian I was truly impressed by the prima Vera. The boys I travel with said their red meat was "pretty good". We had fun. Our server needs to chill a bit though. Glad we went.
