“Terrible”
Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Ordered the surf and turf. Asked for med-rare steak and not to over cook the lobster. Received well-done meat and could not even crack the lobster shell. Friends with us expressed displeasure with their order also. Last time for me...Additionally, service was very slow and there were very few people eating!

“Great food, great service, will return”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Stopped here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Server was courteous. Had fried scallops that were very good and very fresh. Also got a turkey BLT that was good. Would certainly return to this restaurant because of the good service, good food, good prices, and nice atmosphere.

“Excellent food, nearly 5 stars!”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Just a short walk from the Hampton in a quiet street one back from the river, long established restaurant with pleasant ambience.
We had somewhat overdosed on seafood during a tour through main, so we had the French onion soup, then a steak, & the daily special rib roast.
The onion soup was very tasty, lacked crunchy croutons however, & each bowl had more than a quarter pound of melted cheese! So really a hot cheese dish with onion soup!

The steak was great, very tasty, perfectly cooked medium rare as requested. The rib roast also was very good, tasty & tender & as requested, not too bland as sometime this cut is.
Very good service from Jenny.

“Not returning, Not recommending”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via Local Picks

Several friends had recommended this place to us to try out. We were not pleased what so ever. Our service was lousy and sporadic at best! Once our food actually came out, it was nothing to brag about. This was about a year ago and I think I had some sort of seafood medley...overcooked, too rich, and covered with greasy topping. Stomach felt unsettled for the remainder of the night.
