Some reviews were marginal but our dinner was fantastic. Charming little place where the staff was friendly and attentive and the open kitchen almost within the dining room added fun. Amazing variety of choices and generous wine servings all at a good price. This place...More

This place has really great salads and seafood. The seafood is always very fresh. It has a nice little bar and a good neighborhood feel. It can be crowded in the summer, but worth the wait. Fall and spring are perfect times to visit

This place used to be great, but something happened. The serving sizes diminished, the menu changed, and the waitresses (some, not all) were no longer attentive. They seem to bank on the fact they have a full bar, but as we don't drink, we now...More

Good for a casual meal. Balsamic salad with scallops was good, as was the lobster roll. Unfortunately difficult to carry​ on a conversation with the poor acoustics.

Yum. All of us enjoyed dinner here. Three had baked stuffed shrimp and 2 had stuffed Haddock, I think. Best stuffed shrimp this writer has had. Sides were tender asparagus on a bed of spring greens and mashed potatoes. The restaurant is charming and the...More

Went on a Sunday for a late lunch. Food was really good, but service was a bit slow (one bartender & one server on duty). Beer selection was ok, but it would have been nice to see a wider variety of local, craft brews.

We were seated at the bar at 6 pm - and there were tables available in the dining room and high tops in bar area. However, at 6:30 there were no tables available. And, yes, they do take reservations.
