My husband and I have made this restaurant an annual event for his birthday, for the past few years. We went this past weekend and it did not disappoint! Shawn was our waiter and was absolutely fantastic. My husband had the oysters, deconstructed tuna, and rack of lamb. The tuna was the only thing I tasted and it was phenomenal. I highly recommend this and will be getting this all to myself next time!
We also shared calamari which was great as well.
I had the lobster bisque and a house salad. The lobster bisque is one of my favorite things on the menu. I have been ordering it for 4 years now. It reminds me of Maine and is absolutely perfect. When the house salad was brought to me I was worried by the amount of dressing on the salad. You can certainly tell the dressing is homemade and was not over-powerful at all.
My husband always gets a glass of Scotch to end his meal here. I urged him to try a new Scotch and Shawn made an awesome recommendation. I believe it was Ardberg and this was the first Scotch I have ever liked! It was great!
From the time we walked in to the time we left, we had a great experience. You can feel the pride the owners have in this restaurant. The food is amazing, the wait staff is organized, educated and enthusiastic and the atmosphere is superb.
Great job Republic!
