The ambiance is bistro like..small and tight. The staff is very friendly and the choices and flavors are very good. Nice craft selection.

We stopped here on a recommendation from friends. It was a Sunday afternoon around 3:00 and we were greeted by the hostess who said they were finishing brunch and the mid-day menu would start at 3:30. We elected to have drinks while we waited. Had the CoCoNut beer, a dark beer with a wonderful flavor. My husband had a Belgian... More

I've been to Armsby a hand full of times now. The food is very good. The cheese boards are delicious. The drinks are interesting, although a bit pricey for what you get. I will keep returning for their ever changing menu and comfortable atmosphere.

Brunch this Sunday morning was as good as ever...we hadn't dined here in over four years since we had moved away from the area. Glad we came back; service and food were as excellent as we had always remembered. If you're not familiar, AA simply has one of the best tap beer menus in all of New England. Hard to... More

This is a great (and for the area, a bit rare) farm-to-table restaurant, which I visit on a regular basis. It can be loud at times, but the brunch is not to be beat. The beer selection is superb, and if you don't like beer the cocktails are unique and fabulous as well. Their Bloody Marys are the best I've... More

Excellent menu, locally sourced. Hills Farmstead beer which is phenomenal. Great cocktails. Only hassle is missing the rush for brunch (so maybe i shouldnt be reviewing....)
