Absolutely the worst service I have ever seen.. Reservation at 6 with a group of 20. By 6:30 I finally had a drink. Finally at 7 the waitress started taking our orders so I ordered another drink. 7:30 I went to the bar and ordered one there. 8 o'clock still no food or waitress. Went to the bar and asked... More

Went with friends who really liked the food here, but my husband and I were disappointed. He was surprised that they served the steak he ordered. Not good. My salmon was quite good, but the baked potato and salad were very disappointing. No desire to return.

When I was a lot younger Charlie Mallios let me help him make crab cakes at Sunnyside. I was told Carriage House was close. They are close but lack something which I haven't figured out yet. They had some type of meeting in a completely different area, but left the door open to which a very large amount of noise... More

Grabbed a quick dinner before a paint nite event. The food was ok, but nothing special. The asparagus was laying in oil on the plate and the bread for the BLT was barely toasted. Drinks were a little expensive in my opinion. Our waitress, Traci, was very friendly. Would not rush to return, but will like give it another try.

Had high hopes based on previous reviews however we were sorely disappointed. Waitress was clueless. Asked which Troegs they had on tap and she said Troegs. Had to ask her to find out from the bartender and she continued to say it was just Troegs. Ordered crab dip. While reviewing the menu, my husband asked what was in the seafood... More

not sure what I expected, because I had heard that it was good. I did not expected the food to be so good. I had portabella with crab, and my husband had prime rib - both were very, very good.

Ive dined there several times and each time is never a disappointment! The owners and staff and very friendly and its a comfortable atmosphere! The food has always been fantastic. Im partial to the crab cakes but my husband ordered a steak and it was cooked just the way he ordered it! No steak sauce needed either! The flavor was... More

This place had always been a dive until the new owners took over. Place is nicely remodeled but still a bar. The menu is ambitious and, alas, beyond the capability of the kitchen to deliver. It was edible but not worth the price.

this was our first visit. We had Filet Mignon, stuffed portobello mushroom, and Liver and Onions as our entrees. These were all excellent and we would all order them again. The Liver and Onions was one of the best we have every had. Nice size portion. The asparagus sides were a bit sparse and it would have better to have... More

visited tonight and big changes changes inside. It is delightfully pleasant and updated. I had 2 crabcakes which were really lumpy and mac and cheese + stewed tomatoes. Very good. For dessert had the baklava cheesecake. The prime rib Queen size was very good looking in its juice too. This place is very nice and should advertise more in the... More
