Friday night the chef prepares scallops and prime rib. They are the best in the area. They sell out of prime rib about 6:00. The wait staff if wonderful and the prices are very reasonable.

Husband had liver and it was good but not as good as British Open liver meal. I had shrimp scampi and it had no flavor. Do not go back to eat here.

Our first visit. The Bloody Mary's for $3 are assume. Was looking forward to the as advertised Boars Head Corned Beef Hash with Poached Eggs. Hash though tasty was very thin and over cooked. The poached eggs where over cooked. Our problem is we are not really big aholes , so we didn't object.

OK, this review is all facts and exactly what occurred. Their specialty is NE Clam Chowder, only done on Friday and Saturday nights. So, on a Saturday evening, 5PM, after the server took her sweet time to inquire, we attempted to order that. "Sorry, we ran out this afternoon." OK, you didn't make enough for your dinner clientele; it happens.... More

I have to say this is one great place as it's been here since 1997. They have all kinds of events there & the food is excellent. I am happy to see a place still going so strong after all these years!

Thank Mike A
