This place is trying - really, really hard! The food is fine -not gourmet, for sure, but good enough - but they offer a prixe fixe meal every night that's a good deal (includes choice of two salads or a bowl of chowder, choice of...More

I did not check TripAdvisor for the reviews on this place before I decided on a whim to stop in for dinner. I had driven by the place earlier on a Starbucks run and it looked interesting. If I had checked the reviews first, I...More

My wife and I have given this place more chances than we should have. We have watched it sink and then mysteriously resurface again and again, but enough is enough. In reality, we should have left BF years ago, when Danielle quit. For those new...More

Busy bar with many specialty drinks. Generally crowded with a "mixed" crowd. The menu looks great but the prices are much higher than they should be given the food quality. Was hoping for fresh fish, cooked "simply" but not even sure that it's fresh. And,...More

I will be honest. We only came here because we did not make reservations anywhere and the wait time at neighboring Seasons 52 was over two hours. We have come to Market Fair before, but never noticed this place and had no expectations. We didn't...More

This place has been noticeably going downhill over the years. When I come in to town for business, I usually liked coming here because I can access a salmon salad. Tonight the salmon piece was a 2x2. Coming from CA, that’s an insult. Not even...More
