“Good wholesome food.”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Its a really fun place with great waitresses. Ours gave me the receipt of the Pear Cocktail. Yum.

Ribs were good and tasted delicious. Salads always a good option and they take dogs out front. Fun, buzzy and wholesome.

“Out of the Way”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

People miss Chadwicks because it is off the beaten path in Old Town, unless you are going down to take a cruise on the Dandy. It is a locals kind of place - good bar/pub food, great nachos, healthy options, a nice menu - not one that tries to cover four cuisines and all the fads at once. I have been going to Chadwicks since it opened in the 80's, and what was good then has stayed the same. The decor is pleasing but not fancy, the service is professional, the drinks are fine and the bartenders know what they are doing. You go in, you relax, the prices are reasonable, you feel satisfied when you leave, and you know you will go back. During the day, the parking lot across the street is easy in/out, and it is very close to the Torpedo Factory and in the heart of the historic waterfront.

“Loved it ! Excellent meal...great service.”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

First visit....Love the atmosphere here.
We had Brunch on a Sat am. When we arrived, it was rather quiet.
When we left, the place was hopping.
One disappointment though..although the Cinnamon French Toast
sounded great - they don't serve Maple Syrup. Moved on from that idea to other selections that were really good. Eggs Idaho - scrambled served inside crispy potato skins. Yummy. There is some potato clinging to the skin - so home fries. Clever.
Brunch Burrito..scrambled w/ kind of a fresh salsa/ guac & sour cream on the side..served flat so add toppings to the fillings & roll them up. Very good.
Service - wonderful.
We will be back very soon.

“By the river”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Old quaint building were food and beverages are served. Waitress are very friendly cannot speak to the food as I only had time for a quick drink. Bartender was nice but not overly friendly.
It was neat looking at old photographs of the buildings former lives. Old Alexandra is worth a visit if you have been to Newport RI its a smaller version of that seaport. In June many weddings are held in the old town i happened to see 4 brides walking out an about. One got married in the town square. A violinist played near the paddle boat on the Potonic so it made for a restful place to sit and watch the boats go by. Ben and Jerry 's ice cream is right down the street..

“Great place for drinks and a snack!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

Stopped in late one night and had a few drinks and some apps. Excellent service, great food and a strong beer selection. Love the location near the harbor. It's clear they've been making peaple happy for a long time.
