First time here with family for dinner after going to the local Theater, everyone enjoyed the food from eggplant to salmon. The interior was a little dated but clean, a local place reasonably priced, our server Joy was fantastic and made our experience enjoyable and fun! I will definitely stop here again.

First time with friends who have been there many times. I can see why they come back. Food was very good and cooked right. Staff was also very friendly and on point. Place crowed going in and coming out. That alone tells you something. Be prepared to wait on weekends. Reasonably priced. Could use either a extra wait staff or... More

A big group on a Saturday night, they don't take reservations here but knew we were coming and so they did not keep us waiting long. The waitress was wonderful, the food was great and the people around us were very, very friendly. Great experience.

A place we venture into when we want a casual mea. Pizza is probably our reason to go, though pasta meals should be considered as well. A late night bite is available as well. Bar scene there as well. Locals enjoy it here and so do the summer visitors.

Have been going to Squan for many years, but this is my first review. Squan is a great place that all the locals know and love for good Italian food. You can get just a really good piazza or a complete meal. There is a wait on the weekends and in the summer for dinner if you are not an... More

I had calamari diavolo & my wife had shrimp francese. They were both beautifully prepared with a generous proportion. I am often reluctant to order calamari because it could be rubbery if not prepared properly. My dish was perfect & my wife raved about her dish.

Visited the bar area one night around 10pm. Just for a few draft beers and apps. Service was great, both bar and server. Food was good, had calamari and soup. The only draw back was the loud group sharing the bar with us. Otherwise this is a cozy neighborhood bar we frequent often.
