We hadn't made the 20 mile trip to Lowell and the hidden country, for quite some time. Forgot just how charming it is, we like all the old collectibles and things on the walls and ceilings, though some might not. We walked in and our old friend Dave was strumming and picking old easy-listening songs on his flattop guitar. A very pleasant surprise. Food was fantastic as usual and their well stocked salad bar a real treat. The "steak and ale" chowder was very tasty. Prices are very fair and the waitress over the top as usual. Couldn't ask for anything more.
