Food was great but their speciality drinks were over priced and frankly not that good. The bus people were not good at all..... and the food when it came out was in the wrong order. Our waitress was embarrassed

The chowder is very good, the salads excellent, and the desserts outstanding. A great addition to all this are two excellent wine flights

The food and staff were excellent. We always had someone asking if everything was OK and if we needed anything. The atmosphere was causal and light with background music for enjoying the evening.

I always park on Main St, but get there around 4.30-5p. It is 2 hr parking but that limit ends at 6p. If not on Main, try Central Ave.
