Sorry to see a good venue disappear rather quickly. This location used to have a restaurant that was always packed. Now it stands empty... with no lookers.

We had dined at this restaurant 5-6 times during 2014 and always found it to be good. Now it closed. The owners operate 2 other restaurants in the area which are above average, Bradford Tavern and Sylvan Street Grille. Try them.

What a disappointment. Thought things may have improved since it first opened, but no. Chain-chain-chain when there is such GREAT dining in either direction in Essex and Ipswich.

Nothing special but nothing bad either. Nicely furnished. Menu perfect for a family-everyone should find something to enjoy, just don't expect it to be memorable.

Tried out this place for the first time and was not impressed. It was equivalent to a chain restaurant (i.e., 99 or Applebees) in quality. We won't go back for dinner. It looked like it might be a decent choice for a salad or other...More

The food, drinks and service were excellent. Salmon was yummy. The atmosphere was quiet, clean and neat. We will definitely be back again. The waitress was outstanding.
