Imagine eating in a bank built in the 1800s and has been carefully kept to keep the feeling of the time. Dark mahogany paneling and wonderful lighting. The menu reflects all that makes this a great spot for lunch or dinner. We have eaten here a number of times and found that the food and the service is excellent. A... More

Great menu, friendly service, cool atmosphere! My sister and I made reservations for a large party to celebrate our birthday. We ordered drinks and food from all over the menu. Nobody was dissatisfied by their meal. My husband ordered the fish chowder and I passed on a starter but, after I tried a spoonful, I regretted not ordering- so good!... More

We decided to eat lunch here one our way through New Bedford after spending the morning at an appointment in Fall River. We decided to order the fried clam special and the fried shrimp special for lunch. Both were very good but the amount of shrimp and clams per plate was pretty small. The baskets consisted mostly of French fries.... More

Had dinner with 5 other couples before going to a play at the Zeiterion Theater. The food was not only served in a timely manner, it was delicious! We enjoy the fun atmosphere and the staff is friendly. Can't wait to go back!
