This place has the best baby back ribs I ever had. They were tender and no fatty at all. Oh! the fries were thin, crispy and flavorful. I also try the carrot cake with a a scoop of vanilla ice cream, state of the art!

Went with friends and had another excellent meal. Halibut was well presented with fresh vegetables and rice. Blackened and hot. Calm Chowder was hot and full of clams. Service was excellent as always. The place for special meals and events.

Quality restaurant but nothing exciting. NY Strip “Special” (steak & potato) was good, as were the Burgundy Mushrooms. Vegetables were well done. Staff was very friendly and attentive. A few minor concerns. 1) They are quite “conservative” with the wine by the glass. While most...More

Yes, it seems a bit noisier in the restaurant, I figured that is because people are enjoying themselves. You can eat a full meal at the bar!
