We loved the old North Shore equestrian decor in this restaurant. Food is excellent and the service was superb as always. We have eaten there a number of times over the past 20 years.

Got off at the wrong stop on the train by accident so figured would grab a glass of wine and burger. Good call. Super friendly bar tender and staff. Great burger and wine selection.

The pub-like like decor creates a warm and comfortable atmosphere. The menu offers many options that include wonderful soups, salads, seafood, pastas as well as a variety of burgers. The service is always friendly and attentive. In the warm weather the outdoor patio is available and is even dog friendly.

WOW Just WOW. First time there and was blown away by the steamers. I've had steamers at many many places, but none compare to these. I can only have steak on occasion, but was so happy I did, first it was man sized and done perfectly, Even the sides were perfect. This was a real pleasure.

For the best burger in the area, this is the place. The Stabilizer is a big burger, correctly cooked, on an oversized English muffin, with sauteed onions, melted cheese, tomato, very crisp bacon, pickles, and choice of fries. Get the waffle fries. Get a beer. Sit inside publike or outside on the golf course (OK, it's a fenced in patio... More

Four of us dined on a Tuesday night. Food was tasty, appealing, and generous. Service was excellent and friendly. Hey! … These go a long way in a dining experience, yes? Fellow diners all were enjoying themselves, and a hum of general satisfaction filled the air. Dr. Scott says: Don't hesitate. Check it out.

The Stabilizer burger (also available in chicken or turkey) is a solid burger that is covered in sautéed onions, mushrooms, bacon, with cheddar and mozzarella cheese ($15). The restaurant feels one step above a pub, and is very warm and charming. They take reservations, but are not always required which makes it nice for a last minute meal. I've been... More

I go here a lot for lunch with my mom and sister. We always have a good meal, and I love the waitresses and waiters! They're so accommodating to us and we are indeed a tough group! Great salads, burgers, eggs, sandwiches. My personal favorite is the special club. YUM!
