We stopped in for appetizers after a movie, local clams and mussels in a lovely light cream and white wine sauce. I had the lamb sliders, three delicious meaty treats with lots of flavor and a delicious sauce on buns toasted inside. Yum!

Very Cozy, Ornate Restaurant. Personalized food selection. Food served hot, sometimes by the owner. Great place to go especially when its rainy outside, with all the tiny lights on inside. Make sure you make reservations, when they open at 5:00 pm tables fill up quickly....More

Fun, small cafe with a homey feeling. Food was awesome. Roast beef sandwich special is enough for 2. Be sure to try the wonderful clam chowder. Service was great.

We have loved the Fountain each time we have visited. It's a small restaurant with close quarters but somehow they manage to make it an intimate dining experience. The food is off the hook delicious!

The food is top notch, service cheerful and expert - what's not to like?? This was my second time to this restaurant - both for dinner. The Halibut was cooked to perfection. We also had crab cakes (2) which were HUGE and loaded with crab...More

I've eaten here multiple times and my latest visit was very disappointing. Had the crab cakes. The cakes were good size, but no lump crab meat - just the stingy leftovers. Special veggie sandwich was very greasy. Chowder was excellent (as usual) . Minestrone and...More

My husband and I arrived without dinner reservations and all the tables were taken - so we sat at the bar, which turned out to be a plus. Our meals were delicious and and we enjoyed watching the goings on in the kitchen and chatting...More
