We has a hard time finding this restaurant but it was worth the time. The cod cakes were fabulous but the shrimp cannelloni was not good...hardly any shrimp. Drink prices were also excessive compared to other places. Good place overall but thats's it.

Found this place on yelp as it was #1 in the area. So, we gave it a try. Got there two minutes before opening. Had a drink before dinner and then had a very tasty lobster cheese and mac! My friend had the grill pork chop. Both were outstanding. Then to top off with root beer float and crème burley.... More

All I can say is that I had expectations that we would have good service and good food for a business meeting. What we got was excellent service and very good food. There isn't much else to say except that I would recommend this place and I would certainly go back again when I'm in Boston.

We stopped here for a late dinner as a backup plan when our first choice was closed. Talk about good luck. The food was incredible. The mussels were some of the best I've ever had. Everything our group had was great. I saw some of the other reviews were not impressed with the food, but we certainly were. A relatively... More

On entering we were told that the restaurant was fully booked later fir a private affair, but that we could eat inside or in the garden, from a reduced menu. Everything was delicious and fresh.

This is a local tavern that does a lot of local bar business. The service was OK and the food was OK but nothing special. There are better options in the shopoping center nearby.

This restaurant was recommended by The Courtyard Marriott down the street. At first it appeared to be a quaint intimate place with some ambiance. It wasn't. We were able to wait at the bar until 5 when the dinning part opened The drinks are expensive, even for Boston standards. They have a very limited menu some unusual choices, I was... More

Great food in a rustic 50's neighborhood setting. The steak was lean yet juicy crowned in a bed of arugula and fries. The salmon grilled to a crisp on one side while soft on the other, coupled with sautéed quinoa and greens and and Potuguese Stew went well with the house recommended California Cab. The Banana Bread pudding capped the... More
