My family ate here last night and I was less than impressed. First of all, it's very casual dining with 5-star dining prices. If I'm paying that kind of money, I want more ambiance. The napkins are paper which don't last very long when you are eating things like steamed clams. Really, they should provide cloth napkins to elevate the entire atmosphere or at the very least a stack of paper napkins. My napkin was in useless shreds well before the end of the meal. Additionally, as we moved from appetizers to the main meal, they didn't replace our silverware and we had to re-use what we had been given. Not a deal breaker but, again, for these kind of prices they should bump up the level of service in this area.
We ordered steamed clams which were good but not great. My son ordered grilled oysters and he said they were very good. My husband really enjoyed his clam chowder. I also ordered the Caesar salad (my "test" salad to determine the caliber of a restaurant) and I was very disappointed at how little flavor the salad dressing had.
My main meal was swordfish which was excellent. However, the squash that came with it was undercooked and was tough and hard to chew. The fingerling potatoes had been baked with NO SEASONING whatsoever. They were awful! The cook obviously needs to hone his/her skills with vegetables. My husband enjoyed his linguine and clams and declared it to be the best linguine & clams he's ever had that come with a WHITE sauce. The clams casino that my son ordered came with a generous amount of clams mixed in with the stuffing. So the review by family is mixed.
My feeling is that this restaurant might be worth a visit for lunch or appetizers if you're in the area. I definitely don't think it's good enough to warrant a special drive.
