“Excellent food, but tough to get a table.”
Reviewed 14 September 2012

This has become a favorite of everyone in the area. The food is excellent with lots of fresh local ingredients and some creative specials. Their huge hand made crust pizzas are popular for eat in and take out. The setting is an old inn, with several connected dining rooms, so it fills up fast in the summer, even on the weekdays. Service is quick and on nice days, you can dine on the lawn. Go early, or make a reservation for 6 or more. There is live music on Wednesday summer nights.

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Good pizza, good libations, and good service. What more could you ask for in a casual night out. There were six of us and the restaurant held the table for us. It is in an old home and we enjoyed not being in a franchise restaurant.

“Excellent food, reasonable prices”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

The very large and FULL parking lots on a weekday no less attest the food, value and service at this restaurant. Make reservations. Brick oven pizzas are a favorite but the other meal choices are excellent.

“Family fare, reasonably priced”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

A few main dishes, but your best bet is to stick to salads, sandwiches, and (locally popular) pizza. In a beautiful old building–be sure to check out the 2 story entrance hall with a double staircase. Can be somewhat noisy. Expect children to be present.

“Nice casual dining”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

If you like smoked seafood, you must try the sea smoke pizza -- puttanesca sauce with smoked mussels, shrimp and scallops -- delicious! Good service, friendly staff, reasonably priced.
