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.

We had decided to try out the 401 Tavern for dinner yesterday and were happy that we did. Our waitress was very attentive and helpful. Prime rib was on the menu and my husband and I both ordered it. It came with asparagus and a starch. The asparagus was very tasty and the prime rib was very good as well.... More

We've been a few times now. Wine bottles cover walls, ceiling etc... Very old tavern, rustic, wood floors, great bar and patio as well. Their Mac n cheese is not your average mac n cheese. Forget Kraft, it's more of a Parmesan, alfredo like sauce. Comes plain or as buffalo mac n' cheese, my kids favorite, B.L.T which is bacon,... More
