Here on business and happened to try this restaurant. Great place to eat. I wish I could take it back home with me. The food was excellent. I had the Citrus Jumbo Sea Scallops and found them to be wonderful. I've never had better, even compared to fresh caught off the Florida coast. Further, the service was even better than... More

Had the Clam Chowder which was very tasty, others had French Onion Soup and Cream of Mushroom Soup, and they raved about theirs. Of course you'll have to have the bread sticks and cheese spread to share. They add 18% tip to bills if 5 or more share a table (even if separate bills). I think it is of disservice... More

The place is long and narrow, but we were able to quickly get a booth at lunchtime on a weekday. The server was very attentive and made suggestions as to what specials were available. Their chicken soup was filling with large pieces of shredded chicken. My steak was tender and tasty. Overall, a very pleasant experience.

Called in for a beer initially but ended up staying for a meal as it was so busy and the food looked tasty. Good choice of food on the menu and also great choice of locally brewed beers in the bar. Food was hot & tasty and reasonably priced.

This is a wonderful college-town bar/restaurant. The crowd was full of all ages the evening we were there. The bar was busy, but still offered quick and very friendly service. After a drink at the bar, we were seated at a comfortable table. We ordered the hungry man's special pizza, and it was excellent. The toppings were plentiful, it was... More
