The ambience was diner. The food was just okay. Not as good as it should be to compete in that area. We've been there two or three times and it seems to slip a little each vist

We invaded them with no reservations. I think we had 6/8 couples. The staff sat us down starting getting drink orders. I belive we had 3 or 4 of the wait staff for our group. This was after 7:30 pm, maybe they were trying to get us out quick but we never knew it. The staff joined right in singing and playing games with us. It was a good night.

Our group was as varied as the menu. The Italian lovers found their spaghetti and meatballs and stuffed shells to be very good and large portions. The vegetarian thought the veggie lasagna to be outstanding. I had the boiled lobster, the best price I have paid for a lobster dinner in a long time. The service and atmosphere were excellent. The desserts looked awesome, but none of us had room to eat any more. The best part was the cost of the dinner for four adults was under sixty bucks, including tip!

The food was wonderful and then we got the pie. OMG, what great pie we had. A very comfortable restaurant with easy access and great prices. Clever decorating and warm feelings go along with the food. The wait staff made us feel like we were home and the warm feeling of being with friends. I only had the clams there and they were delicious. But, the pie is the hit for me at this place.
