Four of us went for a late afternoon lunch and we were very happy. I always like to try French Onion Soup to see if it measures up to really good restaurants. This one was excellent. I had stuffed sole which was also good. I...More

We’ve been coming to this restaurant for years. All the dishes are great. The fried clams are delicious, the clam chowder is excellent , as well as their famous lobster roll. The only downside is there is usually a wait, but it’s worth it.

The restaurant was very dated looking. It definitely needs to be modernized. The waitstaff seemed fine. We had the early bird dinner specials. We got a lot of food... soup, salad, baked potato, and the meat for 15.95 each. I had the teriyaki chicken breast...More
