Where would we go to celebrate our 42nd anniversary? We live a short walk to the inn, but seem to forget about it. We went and had a nice dinner in a warm atmosphere. The service was great and so was the food. I especially...More

I want to rate this venerable bar higher, but every time I go, the bar folks disappoint us. Every bar between LA and Boston knows how to make a Paloma. Bob had no idea what it is, in his 30 years of experience...and was quite...More

Great decor, professional atmosphere and staff. Broad menu with lots of tempting options. My claim chowder was really excellent, smooth with tender clams. My fish tacos were flavorful, could have used more spice and flavor but overall good. The sweet potato fries were soggy and...More

Four of us met at Samuel's for lunch. After reading some of the reviews I was pleasantly surprised how efficient the service was. Admittedly, there wasn't a big crowed there. But the place was peaceful and there was no problem to hear each other. The...More

We had a team lunch at Samuels. The food was very nice and at a reasonable price. They had a variety of specials and regular choices. Plenty of options for vegetarians. The restaurant was comfortable and pleasant. Overall a nice choice for a team lunch.

We've had two bad experiences at Samuel's At The Andover Inn...the bar that is. On our first visit earlier in the summer, we waited for 15 minutes for service at an uncrowded bar. Bob, who appears to have worked there for a while, finally came...More
