This place rocks, you wouldn't know where it is endless someone for here tells you, but it's a great hang with greater food. Reasonable and fun, there are some things you'll remember, lobster roll to be sure. It's a stop worth not being in a hurry at, hang here and enjoy the vibe.

Our crew of four all found food that was tasty and satisfying - salmon, ham and cheese sandwich, lobster roll and (Oops, forgot). The service was individual and caring. They made a special effort - sent out for fresh milk as they didn't like the taste of what they had. We loved it. Predictably tasty and satisfying.

They are very accommodating regarding substitution. We had everything from burgers, fish and chips, to scallops. The service was good. Everyone had plenty to eat and left happy. Make sure you have dessert

Delicious house-made bread! Delicious blueberry pie!! ... And a good dinner to boot. Had a Blue Plate Special, lamb burger with feta cheese. That role tasted home made, too. Wonderful food and friendly service. Will go back next time I'm in town.

A great neighborhood restaurant "where everybody knows your name." It's always crowded but worth the wait. Seafood dishes on Fridays are outstanding -- so many interesting choices. Everything we had was well-prepared and beautifully served. A gem.

Haven't been there for awhile. Excellent service. I ordered the sauerbraten. Got 4 slabs of badly over cooked, unmarinated pot roast over a bed of noodles. Very poor for their special.

Comfortable and casual restaurant with outstanding food and service. Started with the carrot ginger soup- delicious. Had broiled cod and red pepper sauce and my wife had grilled mahi mahi. Both meals were fabulous. The server Ashley was intuitive and attentive. My wife really didnt want to sit at the table where we were seated, so we were placed in... More

Despite never remembering about this great neighborhood restaurant, it provided a great place for a birthday celebration for a group of us the other night. There were 6 of us dining and I had a reservation so they gave us the small private dining room in the front. It is cozy and comfortable and provided us with a nice private... More

Great first impression followed by an excellent steak. Service was super. It would be nice if they served fries.
