Its a comfortable, pleasant enough place. The staff was friendly and attentive. Decor is like a nice comfortable tavern; good place to relax for a bit. Was only there for a couple of drinks and an appetizer. So you may be asking " why not a higher rating?". Well, it was the appetizer. They had "Riblets" on the menu and... More

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon for a couple drinks and an app. We went to the bar room (this is a multi room restaurant), which has a sports theme. There were a few games on and a mix of older and younger people at the bar. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. We went to a corner table... More

We only had appetizers and a drink but of good quality. People are friendly. Very busy and kind of loud. They have a patio too and an upstairs for more of a fine dining atmosphere. Good place to stop.

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch on the deck last Wednesday. We both had the "trio" which consists of a salad, a cup of seafood chowder and your choice of a main dish or sandwich. My wife chose the haddock and I chose a lobster roll. Everything was very good. The chowder was loaded with seafood, but needed to be warmed... More

Trio seafood places with the best chowder we ever had, creamy, large chunks of haddock and lobster pieces. Great salad & dressings, yummy lobster roll and generous piece of baked haddock

A recent visit for lunch gave us some overpriced haddock on a dry roll and some lackluster crab benedict. It was Mother's Day so they were stuffing people in every nook and cranny they could (at least that's how it felt?) Potato chips is the best they can do? Perhaps a few less wine bottles on the ceiling and a... More

This is a very popular place and there are some good reasons. The menu isn't all that well executed despite being imaginative (and having a huge gluten free section if that's your thing) but the burgers are fantastic and the different rooms are cool. They don't have fries though - boo!

Desi runs a great restaurant. Everything on the menu is top notch with a great summer atmosphere. Great place to enjoy a holiday drinks whether it is Christmas, St Pattys Day or 4th of July. Fun place to eat and drink
