We stopped for lunch on a rainy cold day and were immediately made to feel welcome. The lunch menu was varied and we both were satisfied with our choices. Service was timely and friendly. Would certainly come again.

I met a friend here for lunch and I wasn't disappointed. It is called the House and that is what it is on the outside but inside it has large open spaces. The wooden floors tend to be noisey when the place fills up. We...More

Probably the most chaotic service I've ever seen. Definitely a place where waiting for service to come to you is not an option, he who shouts loudest gets served first as there appears to be no structure to how the waiting staff work. The breakfast...More

Just wonderful to eat in such a lovely place. Food was just gorgeous. We got the "sloppy joe" and chowder and it was more than enough. We were welcomed and given a super large table so we could fit the 2 buggys and 2 toddlers....More

We went here on spec for lunch. We both had chowder which arrived with lots of nice bread- the Guinness bread was yum. Helpings were substantial and full of assorted fish. Staff very nice.
