Wife and I tried this place with a Groupon. It's a banquet hall that serves food Thu-Sun along with live music and a bar. Unassuming location off Route 1A on the S. Attleboro/Pawtucket line.
The menu is very ambitious, reading more like a Gordon Ramsey creation than a bar/music menu. Think less "wings and nachos" and more "risotto and seafood".
We had no idea they had live music, or that Sunday is apparently the most popular night. It was also the last weekend for the Groupon so, of course, the place was overloaded. As a result, the entire dining experience took over 2 hours. We waited 10 minutes before a waitress even came over. I think the water and bread came out after 20-30 minutes of sitting. We had a couple of appetizers, and our main courses didn't come out until an hour and 45 minutes after we entered (sat down at 5:30pm, meals came out at 7:15pm). Luckily the music kept us distracted (good house band playing jazz/blues rock stuff a la Stevie Ray Vaughan).
The food was excellent. We started with a gorgonzola fondue which was delicious ($9.99), and an ambitious calamari ($12.99) with not as much calamari as I'd like but with plenty of other things (like artichoke, capers, and olives) and a nice sauce. My wife got bourbon steak tips ($15.99 I think); they weren't overly large, but she said they were tender and tasty. I got a poached haddock with mussels ($16.99) that was very good, the fish and mussels done right although the sauce was a bit on the salty side.
At the end of the meal, we told the waitress that, while the food was excellent, the long wait was a bit much. She apologized and said they were very busy due to the Groupon being in it's final days. (We've had this happen to us at other restaurants as well, and it's a bit baffling as to why restaurants don't staff heavier at the end of a Groupon period, knowing that procrastinators always pack the place in the final nights.) Then she said she'd be right back. We assumed she might be doing something nice like taking $10 off the bill or something. Instead, she came back with a $50 gift card for us to return. In my opinion this was well above and beyond the call; she would've been within her rights simply to apologize and say, "Well, all you Grouponners came in at the end, if you'd used it weeks ago you wouldn't have to wait." So they get high marks for management.
It's probably definitely busier on Sunday nights although probably not "two hour wait for your food" busy, so we'll definitely return as the food was very good and the music was enjoyable. I'm rating Service as "Very Good" since the giftcard gesture balances out the long wait.
