Parking lot was full, finally found a space, was told there was at least a 30-min wait. Went elsewhere. Will try again another trip. Any place that's that crowded with a line at the door has to be good.

I have eaten here several times. It is a nice place with excellent service. Friday nights they have one man band type entertainment. You must ask for seating near him to enjoy the music. Food is priced on the high side. relaxing atmosphere. special alcoholic drinks if desired. I've never had to wait for seating - no reservations either. When you make reservations, they cater to you more. Lemon ice is a tasty treat.

We drive past this place all the time, yet have only eaten there once or twice in the 5 years or so it's been there--no good reason, we just hadn't.
We made a reservation for 3 PM on Easter Sunday. We arrive just a couple minutes early, were seated promptly and waited on in good time. In spite of the busyness of the day.
We both chose the ham and white bean soup which may have been a bit salty; but the chunks of ham were chunks, not shreds as we've seen other places. The rolls served with the soup were freshly baked, crusty and tasty.
My wife's choice was stuffed haddock, mine was chicken and sausage orietta. The haddock meal was two well-stuffed fillets. The stuffing was seafood with little if any filler. The rice pilaf was tasty and the vegetables were--well, they're vegetables.... The orietta was a great treat. The amount of chicken was more than generous, though the sausage may have been a bit skimpy--but tasty. The sauce was good, not overly spicy and the meal was not soupy with it. Since I like to liberally dust most pasta meals with Parmesan cheese, it was exactly to my liking.
Our desserts were also very good. The smores bread pudding was something that we'd never seen before and was tasty and interesting--also a large quantity. The flowerless chocolate cake was rich, smooth and could easily be described as decadent; two pieces were served--one came home with us.
Overall, we were very pleased. We had a good meal in a nice environment at a relaxed pace, all for a reasonable price.

They have free music in the bar area on Friday and Saturday nights. Wonderful cocktails, we both had the Mojitos and calamari. Wonderful inexpensive date night all around.
