Stopped by for dinner with friends last minute planning. Parking in the rear, the restaurant is right on Main St. Came a little early for dinner about 5:30, and already busy. I thought that would be a good sign. Waitress pleasant for being overworked, it...More

The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but this was the best food I ate all week in Southbridge. Very friendly and attentive staff. Clam Chowder was out of this world with a delicious garlicky twist that separates it from the traditional offering....More

I had good food here, but it is the clam chowder that sticks in my mind. I couldn't find any other like it on my trip to Maine after this stop in Southbridge.

Very upscale venue with moderate prices. Food is good, some portions a little small but very good. Nice gathering room as well for parties.

I usually stop here for drinks after work here and there. I've only eaten here 2x, but I got the Scallops both times and they were both deserving of a good review. I wouldn't make a special trip to eat here, but I always stop...More

Service was slow due to understaffing. I ordered lazy lobster, not lazy at all. It was stuffed lobster tail and I think they removed most of the tail meat. Left hungry. Potatoes and vegetables were undercooked. Soup was tepid. Drinks were so bad we remixed...More
