Heard good things about Nathan's. Boy were we disappointed. The dining room was freezing. My parents ate with their jackets on. My mother any myself ordered the seafood Combo which was $27.00. What a skimpy meal. We could have gotten twice the amount of seafood at Red Lobster for 20 bucks. There were only 3 tiny shrimp which were completely... More

Small but kind of shabby chic. Not a place I'd recommend if you have a handicapped member in your party. Decent selection of draft beer, and it's all ice cold. The stuffed flounder and hot roast beef sandwich was outstanding. Friends with me also raved about the steak. Very reasonably priced.

The place is small, hard to park, not great if you have handicap people with you, food and service was ok. Very small bar, get bumped all the time sitting in it. Restaurant is in the back and isn't all that nice.

Great pub with good menue. Wings are my favorite. Small but quiet comfortable dinning room in back The front is typical bar a bit louder with music and usually a good crowd

Great local food and interactive hosts make Nathan's a local gem. The steaks and crab cakes are delicious. Very fresh salads and large entrees are the norm.

The bar area is smoky. Absolutely wonderful crab cakes. Service was above par for us (party of 4), not so much for the couple whose order was lost. It was busy, still no excuse. Felt sorry for them. I wanted to try a steak, but so many people raved about the crab cakes. It wasn't a lie. We did see... More

Firstly, if you want to avoid going through the smoking bar, enter the non smoking dining room via the side entrance located underneath the fire escape. We came here for dinner because I wanted crab cakes, and this place rated high for those. It did not disappoint. It's nothing fancy. The dining room is small and dimly lit, but the... More

Not exactly the place you'd expect to find good food, but we were quite pleased with the food. The crab cakes were first-rate.

All of the food tried by four of us ranged from being either cold or plain terrible. Took incredibly too long (hardly anyone there) and cost entirely too much. Will not be returning.
