This is only our 2nd time here. We are from NJ and work in NYC - and visit family near here. We loved our first time here and love being here again. We are eating the chicken tenders with an extraordinary sauce and a salad along with the clam chowder. These dishes are exceptional. You'll also love the beer selection.... More

Some friends and I stopped here for dinner before an event at Mechanics Hall. Our waitress was very friendly, and cheerfully answered all of our questions about the menu and the drinks. The food was fantastic! I had the Mushroomtopia. The pan-seared ravioli were paired perfectly and topped with just the right about of vegetables and parmesan. I tried some... More

I wouldn't call this a family location unless during the day...but they are welcoming to all. Small place with great atmosphere. I think of this place as the appetizer to any great evening planned. Dinner before the movie or dancing. Drink with friends before the club. Get the idea?!! staff are great, friendly, and fast. Try their sangria it was... More

What makes the Rhino great is that they are always mixing up the menu and the new additions are always delicious. Great atmosphere to have a meal and the staff is knowledgeable and accommodating. The bar is a great place to catch uo with friends while munching on their eclectic and delicious appetizers.

I had lunch at the Flying Rhino on Sunday. The food was excellent especially the chicken wings. All the appetizers were very delicious and you can order them in two sizes which is nice. We chose to sit at a table in the bar area and watch the Patriots game. We really had to yell because the volume was way... More

We had lunch there on a Thursday. A lot of business type people, some families, locals, college students-it was a good mix. Interesting menu, I had the brisket-couldn't have been more tender! Daughter had the caprese sandwich-faccocia, mozzarella, tomato with pesto, loved it! Funky decor, painted tables, not hard to find a little outside of Worcester center, nearer to UMass... More
