“Scarey building houses great food”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Based on the outside appearance of the building, we were leery about entering. We received a couple recommendations but no one warned us about the outside appearance. The inside is very quaint. Our waiter was great. I had to ask if he was the owner since he was so attentive.

The food was great. Healthy servings with freshly prepared meals.

Warning, the seating inside is limited.

A gem. We plan to visit again next year.

“Terrific Find!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

This was not the place we intended to go, HOWEVER, it was a very pleseant surprise!

The waitress was very attentive, the food was good (delivered quickly, and hot!), and the beer was cold.

We both got the sirloin, which was steak with onion rings on top, plus potato (mom - french fries, me - mashed potatoes) and winter squash. Plus the soup of the day (chicken something or other - delicious - lots of big pieces of chicken and spinach).

Total bill was $62 with tip (just 1 beer), which I thought was completely appropriate.

Definitely recommend!

“Great Food”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

Stopped by on a Monday evening with friends while visiting area. Three of us enjoyed great fresh lobster and seafood. Fourth enjoyed a dinner salad, all entrees nicely presented, ample sized and delicious. Service was excellent and restaurant very clean and appealing. Will definitely return when we fine ourselves in the area in the future.

Very big portions and excellent food. The server was so nice to us and even made accommodations for allergies. Everything tasted homemade and was super delicious!

Reviewed June 29, 2014

Quaint place with a good menu. Had bowl of piping hot chowder, nice flavor. Had the special which was mussels,shrimp,scallops over linguine in a butter garlic sauce with scallions and roasted red peppers and diced tomato. Appealing presentation and tasted very fresh and delicious. Would not hesitate to come visit again!
