“Excellent dinner!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

Been to the restaurant several times and have always had an excellent meal. The salad bar and soup and bread is wonderful. The scallops are absolutely delicious. Pretty restaurant with accommodating staff. Big portions of chicken parm. House scampi with artichokes and shrimp was yummy, good flavors

“Excellent Choice”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Was recommended by other restaurant owner. Food selection, portion and taste was very good. Decent size salad bar and selection. Attentive service. Well priced. Just off Rt 4. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

“The salad and soup bar is excellent”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

One of these days I'll learn to order the salad bar and be satisfied. The entire are quite good, but once you've torn through the salad bar, the soup, and all the specialty salads, you don't have room!

The steaks are very good, and the penne with vodka was great.

“Not so good.”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I'm a big fan of "old-fashioned", so to me, the place is charming. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. The food is not up to par, though. Although the shrimp on the salad bar should be a big plus, it was strange. Rather water-logged and with a sort of grainy texture. I'm not sure what's up with that. The soup of the day was at the bottom of the barrel, and maybe that was the reason, but it was awful. It was supposed to be tomato-cheddar, and all I tasted was cayenne. My baked shrimp stuffed with crabmeat was just acceptable. The crab wasn't noticeable, but it was well-seasoned, and I felt that the portion was small for the price. My companion had what was billed as "maple-glazed" pork chops, but what he got was overcooked pork chops sitting in a pool of syrup. That was just barely edible, and very disappointing, especially for someone who is watching his carbs. I wish them well ... I like places like this to stay in business ... unfortunately, I wouldn't go back unless they make some serious changes in the kitchen.
