My daughter and I went for burgers at lunch, burgers were ok but we were disappointed that the cheese was cold without a hint of melting. When I asked about it, I was informed it was difficult to melt cheese without overcooking since we ordered medium rare. I always order medium rare and the cheese is always melted - popping... More

Funky decorations, potent drinks and fresh, tasty meals made for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Though the noise level was a bit high, the Caesar salad and Rose Begonia pasta were well worth having to talk a little louder. The menu is more suited to lunch with lots of burgers, sandwiches and pizzas but the pasta choices are interesting enough to... More

The food is well prepared and the selection is good for family or couple. The decor is cheerful, BUT, the noise level is really noticeable. Having been there quite a few times, I asked the waiter and he said they had tried to curb sound in various ways, but not to much avail! I suggest going during off hours. They... More

This restaurant is on a side street just past Bowdoin College. The decor is a little interesting with Christmas lights and potted plants and trees. The wait staff was very good -- attentive without be obtrusive. My wife had the CObb Salad with a full chicken breast on top ($11.95) and I had the Rose Begonia which was penna pasta... More

Good food nothing great but nothing bad. I had pasta there was more then enough. I also had coffee after dinner not so good. Seemed like it was a little old. Really that was the only thing I can say bad.

Good choice if you're going to see a show at Bowdoin. It's just around the corner. They have tables outside and inside. The menu is sufficiently large so that everyone can find something they like -- pizza, burgers, sandwiches, soups, pasta. The grilled cheese with tomatoes and bacon on sourdough hit the spot. Good beer selection. Prices are quite reasonable.... More

First and last visit to this place. The decor is quite bizarre. It looks like each wall was decorated by someone else. All holidays are represented with trashy glitz. Beach balls, inflatable baseballs, flags, Christmas lights, historic magazines in frames along with farming and 4H photos. The grilled shrimp skewer special was too salty and sour to eat. The waitress... More

The restaurant is well appointed and the menu is quite interesting. Unfortunately the service was lackluster and the food was only OK. We waited nearly 45 minutes to be waited on, and our meals took over half an hour to come to the table. The restaurant was not that busy - it just seemed that they didn't have their act... More
