Went for lunch because of salad bar. Great selection on the salad bar and soup bar. Lettuce was fresh. My husband ordered the shrimp roll and it was smothered with shrimp. A GREAT deal. Friendly service.

We had dinner at the Bull & Claw...a favorite of ours. We both had Fish & Chips this time and added the soup & salad bar.....good variety. Previously we went for the 32" lobster roll...they make their own bun for this special treat. Loaded with lobster with a choice of butter or mayo served on a platter with a garnish.... More

Food was good and portions were reasonable for the prices charged. One portion of my dinner - scallops - were overcooked and tasted like rubber, otherwise good.

Great food and lots of room inside. More than we thought. The salad bar is amazing and worth the trip just for that. The soup/chowder bar looked amazing, also. The food was very good and the service is excellent even when they were very busy. We'll be going back.

I visited last week for dinner with my family. Overall, we had a nice time, and the food was really nice, however the service was only average. The place was clean, and the salad bar is nice. I liked that they offered lighter portions on the menu for a few items, and my son really liked the lobster roll.
