My husband, friend and I stopped here on the way to Folsom from Reno. My husband's friend suggested we meet him there since he lives in Auburn and it's his go-to restaurant.
We popped in for dinner on a Friday night. We parked next to the restaurant which requires a ticket from the parking meter. The parking meter box was difficult to read since it was a dark and
rainy night. It didn't accept cash and once we figured out which way to swipe our credit card, we were good to go. A light near the box would be helpful for out-of-towners in order to read the directions.
We had to wait an hour for our name to be called. There is very limited seating inside the restaurant to wait. So, we stood for an hour along with several other people in the very noisy, packed restaurant.
Once we were seated, the server took his time with us. I noticed he had several regular customers who received more attention than we did. My husband, friend nor I drink beer. My husband's friend raved about the beer. So, if you're a beer drinker, this place will be for you! My New England clam chowder was the best I've ever had! It was smoky and had big chunks of clams. It was delicious. I wish I ordered a bowl and not a cup. It was that good! Unfortunately, my appetizer crab cakes arrived cold. They were smothered in a Dijon sauce. I couldn't adequately taste the crab cakes under the Dijon sauce. I would've returned them but knew a new order of crab cakes would take forever due to the slow service from our waiter.
I will definitely give this restaurant another try but not on a busy weekend Winter night.
