Cocktails are innovative and well prepared and the servers are all anxious to please. Oh, and did I already say it was not a wallet buster? Check it out and try... More

The food was decent with an Italian flavor. The service was slow and it was busy. Usually a sign that the servers are managing too many tables.

Husband and I were staying outside Boston for the weekend and came upon this restaurant. We had an excellent spinach and artichoke dip for an appetizer. Husband had a burger that he said was delicious. I had a fried chicken sandwich. There was so much chicken I had to pull a piece out so I could fit it in my... More

The food at Grassfield's was so good the first night we dined that we came back the next day. we've never done that ever before. Very good quality food and a nice cozy atmosphere. The first night my husband had the lobster pie... More

I find this place a go too when everything's is too far or need a,quick fix. My only issue...you pay more than you get. I always feel hungry when I leave..or poor after eating what I feel is a real meal. They cater to older crowd...so I guess they have a good thing going. Higher priced items...mid portions..high margins. I... More

Can't say nothing bad about it. Always had a good meal at a good price. Drinks are good as is the beer selection. The staff real friendly and helpful with selections. Prices are very reasonable. I've gone in there for lunch and dinner enjoyed them both. It can get real busy so I try to get in before it gets... More

We visited last year, and the year before and this year was no exception with good food, extremely helpful waitress Ashley, and reasonable prices! We ate at 5.30 pm on a Saturday and were surprised at how busy it was but we were soon seated which was helpful with two small grandchildren! Menu varied, and with the specials menu and... More

Inexpensive, but good seafood. Sides were okay but the crab pie was delicious and the scrod was pretty tasty
