Tried this for first time on a Saturday evening. Restaurant was half full when we arrived, yet hostess tried to seat us at table closest to the entrance. Prior to being seated she accommodated our request for a table further inside the dining room. The server was pleasant, however after serving our main dish, we did not see her again... More

Well, on a Monday night, mostly older people. The chicken piccata was just ok. Chicken was not pounded so a little tough. Sauce and vegetables were good. Inside of restaurant is very old looking, peeling wall paper and dirty cracked ceiling. A little expensive for the condition of the place and the food.

I went to Friends for my birthday last night with my husband and daughter who surprised me coming down from Boston. The host went to seat us and said "you know this is a nonsmoking restaurant ". Turned my husband right off we don't smoke. All restaurants in CT are none smoking! I was in the restaurant business for over... More

First time here and we were delighted. Sat at the bar with very friendly bartender and other patrons . Menu and specials all sounded super. Loved our soup and salad and look forward to another visit.

Service was very good, attentive, friendly. Food is better than OK. Solid choice for a burger and fries. Seafood dishes solid, just not extraordinary in a market where extraordinary is not very far away. Single room capable of noise problems when busy.

Not as good as it was in the 1980's but still a convenient and palatable choice. Nice people and pretty good food

My mother and I went to friends and company for lunch last year, and I remember a wonderful large, not too expensive dessert. We went again for lunch and I had a wonderful chicken waldorf like salad with cranberries. We sat outside which was nice. Then we had a great dessert. Prices are decent, atmosphere good, service good.

Came here for dinner with business colleagues for dinner and I was not disappointed. We hadn't heard of the restaurant but we're staying fairly close and happened upon it when leaving the hotel. We tried a bit of everything- mussels, calamari, caprese salad, wedge salad, seafood salad- everything was great. Our server, Joe, was incredibly friendly and we all thoroughly... More
