The food was, as usual, very good. The service was less than par. Katherine was one of the least attentive waitresses we’ve ever had in our years of fine dining. When you spend above $60 for wine, salad and entree. You expect to be treated...More

Food here was delicious, and portions were very large. The chicken Parmesan was excellent and i loved its rich, chunky tomato sauce. Good prices for the quality food.

We hadn't been here in a few years when we decided to drop in one night. We sat at the bar, ordered drinks and shared a salad and pizza. Perfect evening between food and the interplay between our entertaining bar tender and other bar stool...More

Fabulous spinach salad, calamari and pasta dinners. We had the chicken and broccoli pasta, chicken piccata and the risotto pasta special. Visiting for a day on a road trip from Canada worth the visit!

It's not the place you want to pay just for boiled lobster. Too costly for plain lobster. Claws, about a mile down Main Street is the place to go for that, nice water view , very casual , most outdoor type place.
