On a Monday evening (only a few tables were occupied), dinner was with a few collegues. Most of the group had the clam chowder and I had the kale salad special. The chowder was a traditional creamy white chowder and the kale salad had candied pecans, cranberries and blue cheese.

I had the crab cakes as my entree which were very good, served with a tasty remoulade. The others had the swordfish, burger and grilled chicken & peach salad.

We shared a slice of the chocolate decadence cake which was served with some whipped cream

The server was very cordial and accomodating to some special requests.

We've been to Palmers several times and are never disappointed. The service is always great and the food is pretty outstanding. The atmosphere in the dining rooms is a mix between quaint and upscale and it's usually quiet enough to have a conversation over dinner. My only criticism is that the wine list is a little sparse. Overall, great choice for a midrange nice dinner out.

This is a typically Boston area bar/restaurant. I mostly like the bar like atomsphere and its history. I was told it used to be a funeral home. It dose serves food and offers salads which was overall pretty good.

Indoors or Out. Must order the Potato skins! I personally love the Chicken Caesar but never have ordered something I have not liked. Upstairs and inside is a bit more 'fancy' but downstairs at the bar/grille is casual. Sometimes a band is playing. A nice date night or night out with friends.
