Went there for lunch with my son. Who decided to eat in the pump area. Lunch was awesome. I had the reuben sandwich with their homemade potato chips. Totally awesome lunch. I was so full I didn't eat dinner when I got home that night. My son and I had a quiet little corner where we talked and had fun.... More

A very unique place. Fun touches in terms of decorating & thought, like a serve yourself cheese and cracker bar. We had good food & friendly service.... Just wish we saved room for dessert!

Food was alright, nothing to brag about. Interior was stuffy. Wait staff was friendly and polite, but not very engaging - all surface, no heart.

Softball tournament in town so it was crazy busy. The hostess was a big stressed, but understandable with that many walkins. Server was great, food and menu was decent. Would return

The restaurant is quite busy, so you have to make a reservation. I had fish stew and the portion was quite generous. the meal was very good, I would definitely order it again! They also have good deserts!

After the drinks were served we waited and waited for our enrtres to appear. There appeared to be lots of wait staff and managers in the room but no one looked our way when... More

We were greeted with excellent service, amazing food, and terrific atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and that was with 5 totally different taste buds... including 2 really picky eaters. Great desserts, and the pot roast was worth the trip!

Been there a few times during my business trip out to NH. Interesting old style restaurant, the appetizer bar upstairs was a cool idea. Had seafood there every time and they never disappoint.
