Stopped in for lunch on a Friday. Kind of a rambling funky place with several rooms. We sat in the lounge. Dated, worn furnishings. Impressive bar. Pictures of patrons all over the walls. No blank space in this place. Obviously has loyal regulars, during our lunch several people came in to greetings of "How ya doing Bob?" or "What's going... More

Very laid back and casual atmosphere. We started with the tapas meatballs and potstickers. My wife did not think the meatballs were very flavorful but I enjoyed them personally. The potstickers were very good and the dipping sauce had a little heat that hits right away and then dissipates quickly, we both enjoyed them. My wife had the French onion... More

We tried the early bird special when it was not too crowded. The waitress was friendly. This is a very good deal for the amount of food you get. I had the onion soup, beef tips with potatoes and asparagus, plus apple pie. The beef tips were delicious and the apple pie was wonderful. My husband had a salad, crab... More

I had the Mediterranean Quinoa Salad for lunch and requested chicken be added for this take out meal. The Salad and dressing were both tasty and enjoyable. The portion size was good. I'd order it again. However the Salad came with (4) small, rubbery, tasteless pieces of chicken which I added to the order. The cost of the base Salad... More

I recently stopped in for a beer and dinner and thought that it has the potential to be better. They do have a good feel inside whether you are looking to catch a game or catch up with friends. They also have a good selection of beer to choose from. We had ordered the meatballs for an appetizer and they... More

We intended to go to the Old Salt Sunday Brunch, only to find out you need to make a reservation a week in advance. Discouraged, we resolved ourselves to a simple lunch, and chose the 401 Tavern, just down the street. Turns out they had Sunday Brunch specials and we both ordered the Lobster Eggs Benedict. I have had eggs... More

Been dying to try this . We have gone by it so many times on the way to somewhere else. This time we decided to go for drinks and dinner. I got an Allegash White and hubby got a Guiness. Then I got this dish that had two scallops wrapped in bacon with light crumbs, two shrimp with light crumbs,... More
