I recently stopped in for a beer and dinner and thought that it has the potential to be better. They do have a good feel inside whether you are looking to catch a game or catch up with friends. They also have a good selection of beer to choose from. We had ordered the meatballs for an appetizer and they... More

We intended to go to the Old Salt Sunday Brunch, only to find out you need to make a reservation a week in advance. Discouraged, we resolved ourselves to a simple lunch, and chose the 401 Tavern, just down the street. Turns out they had Sunday Brunch specials and we both ordered the Lobster Eggs Benedict. I have had eggs... More

Been dying to try this . We have gone by it so many times on the way to somewhere else. This time we decided to go for drinks and dinner. I got an Allegash White and hubby got a Guiness. Then I got this dish that had two scallops wrapped in bacon with light crumbs, two shrimp with light crumbs,... More

Very fun little place -- the owner went out of his way to see that everyone was happy. The BLT Mac and Cheese was terrific! Looking forward to visiting again.

Basic, good pub restaurant. Nice place with a good staff. Not a children's place. Great if your looking for a drink with snacks.

This place is great!! It is exactly what a neighborhood tavern should look and feel like. Very rustic old tavern with wood floors and lots of ambiance. Great beer list. My husband and I decided to try it for brunch--their benedicts are great (one of the few places that is generous with the hollandaise sauce.) We also tried the Bloody... More

Whenever we go to Maine, we make a detour to this fabulous little restaurant in Hampton New Hampshire. The place itself is cute in a nice old rustic seafaring way, and the food is outstanding. The chowder is the best that I've ever had, and the lobster roll is to die for. Sit outside if the weather is nice.
