Captain Jonathan Pasco's residence (circa 1744) now serves as a unique restaurant, conveniently located in the Windsor/East Windsor area. Suggest you read the history on the website - very interesting. Several rooms of varied sizes (with the original wide-board floors) accommodate hungry guests.

Some starter items (a.k.a. appetizers) are not typical. For instance - fried Brussell sprouts with sea salt and Jamaican relish! However, there are other quality apps that are more common - shrimp cocktail, crab cakes, fried calamari, etc. The New England Clam Chowder is excellent - fresh clams, thick and flavorful broth with a hint of bacon - YUM.
For a salad, try the Apple Walnut selection - Bibb lettuce, apples, candied walnuts and gorganzola cheese, with a sherry vinaigrette - very tasty.

Seafood entrees are many, but there are other wonderful non-fish choices. Try the Seafood Fra Diavlo if you are hungry - very large portion of quality ingredients. Pasco's Salmon, encrusted with pesto sauce is another seafood standout.

The bar service is very good with some unique beer selections.

Desserts are good, but not outstanding.

Service is friendly and very efficient. Prices are in-line for the quality of food served.

This was an all-around great experience.

The menu choices were awesome--I wanted to order a sampler plate with a little of everything.

The waitstaff was delightful.

The food really was awesome. The bread was served with an amazing presentation of a whole garlic bulb in olive oil. The mashed potatoes were AMAZING. I had the baked stuffed shrimp and my wife had the baked cod--both of which were cooked perfectly.

After dinner we wandered through the old house and enjoyed the architecture, the various bits of old furniture, at least one very old quilt, and some other interesting artifacts.

Good food. Not as busy as it used to be. Good for an average dinner out. Location is fairly convenient from many nearby locations.

Today we got together with about 35 of our closest friends and family to celebrate our coming addition. Brian was a great help in setting up our party and was there throughout to ensure everything ran smoothly. We had a buffet lunch that was excellent - with special kudos to the chicken francaise that even my brother-in-law complimented... and that's saying something :) And the prices were favorable compared to the banquet halls in the area.

Everyone in the party was complimentary of the ambiance, the food, and the friendliness of the staff. Several people commented that they would be going back for dinner.

Thank you Brian & Debbie!
