Had our company holiday party there. Food was good, service attentive, facilities nice. Parking is a bit tough, but there is a garage close by.

Nice atmosphere. My husband and I wanted to have a nice meal in a relaxing atmosphere and ESB fit the bill! The food was good. We especially enjoyed a starter of mussels. They have an amazing selection of martinis! I enjoyed a rib eye steak and my husband equally enjoyed his seafood dish. A bit pricey, but worth the splurge.

First time at this restaurant, and glad that we came on the early side for lunch. Attention from our waiter became increasingly spotty through our meal - we noticed he was the only one working a room of at least 11 tables, with busboy help only (and the busboy was servicing the bar). My husband's turkey club was enormous. -... More

My husband and I hosted a 50th Anniversary Social for about 75 people. Working with John the owner was a pleasure. The staff, atmosphere and food exceptional. We had a beer and wine station that worked out terrific. I have a nephew that is vegan and the chef prepared him a special meal. We also had 8 children ages 13... More

We had our son and daughter in law's baby shower here in late August 2016. The room was great and the food was excellent. The staff was very attentive to all of our needs. Everyone had a great time. The food kept on coming and they packed it up for us to take home - I have never experienced that... More

We typically go here for business lunch. Excellent selection of many types of food - sandwiches that come out presented beautifully. Pricing is very good and the quality of food and service very high.

We had my sisters baby shower brunch here this past weekend. Very nice private function space, plenty of room for our 45 guests plus a dessert and gift table. Eggs, bacon, potatoes, french toast, chicken broccoli and ziti, turkey wraps, fresh fruit. All the food was delicious! My only complaint is, large wine glasses were put out with the Mimosa... More

My niece has a lot of food allergies and the waitress kept having to ask the chef about ingredient about many of the dishes without any reluctance. Everything we tried was really good. I especially loved how the calamari comes with the tentacles and not just the rings! It was cooked to perfection...crispy and melts in your mouth!! The selection... More
