We stopped in at 8:00 pm on a busy summer night. We had called Head to make a reservation but heavy traffic delayed our arrival. The hostess nonetheless held a table for us and seated us immediately. The service was prompt and superb. The food was excellent and the menu pleasantly varied. We felt like we had the restaurant to ourselves even though all the dining rooms appeared to be full. Overall, a delightfully pleasing dining experience.

My husband and I have eaten at Lavinia's twice now and the last time we brought 2 of our friends who were very impressed of the restaurant. My husband had the lobster pie which we also read on tripadvisor that it had full chunks of lobster in it and it actually did!! My favorite is the fish and chips which is very tasty. If you get there early enough you can sit and relax in the adirondak chairs and have a cocktail. In fact the night that the four of us were there they had a wedding rehearsal outdoors and it was so beautifully decorated!! Definitely will be back!!

We were a table of five in the dining room on the first floor. At first the service was a bit slow but once the starters came they were well worth the wait! Our main courses were delicious -- but the serving sizes were entirely too large. The plates were piled so high that it took away our appetites. One of our party ordered 1/2 portion of spare ribs and took home half of it! Our son ordered a burger and brought home 3/4 of it because his "flat bread" starter was so large. The fish taco was superb but the portion was large enough for two people plus. The member of our party who ordered the egg plant main course ate only one fourth of it and today at lunch two men ate the rest of it.

We will definitely go back but when ordering, two people will order one main and split it.

Donna, the innkeeper of the Tuckernuck Inn recommended this restaurant. We were delighted with the food, the ambiance and the friendly wait staff. The service was perfect, attentive but not obsequious. The menu was extensive but not overwhelming. My husband and I were both delighted with our dinner choices. We love the Tuckernuck Inn and plan a return visit, soon, we will certainly plan to eat at Lavinia's also.
