This is probably the best place I have ever been to to eat wings! The flavors are limited but when you eat them they are amazing. My favorite is the teriyaki and be sure to ask for them dirt style as they'll be super saucy and full of flavor. They also serve some amazing salads and sandwiches which we had... More

This place was awesome! I am not a wings fan, but my friends insisted that I try the wings here and told me about how they make them, and I was sold. We split the honey bbq wings and my friends had the sweet chili ones, and the honey bbq were so delicious and smoky and so, so good. I... More

Judging by the parking lot, I thought there would be a long wait to eat here. We got right in-the restaurant is bigger than it looks. We did not order wings. I ordered the scrod special and my husband ordered the steak special. Both were delicious. Love the bread. Good service. Loud restaurant!

We came on a Saturday afternoon around 1:30 and there was a 25 minute wait. We ordered the dirty wings in teriyaki and buffalo flavors. They were very good, but with all the hype of how they were the best wings in the state, they had a lot to live up to. They didn't blow me away, but yes they... More

We stopped by on our way home from a weekend away. The outside looks just like it did in 1795, the inside matches the outside, rustic and quaint. There are a number of rooms and a fireplace in each. We ordered he dirty wings, my girlfriend had heard of the place and we put it on our "restaurants to visit"... More

This was my first time at this restaurant and I look forward to going back! We had a variety of wings and everyone enjoyed them. The wings are well done, great taste, and the dirty style is worth a try for every wing lover! Our service was great. Quick and always aware of drinks getting low or needing to move... More

Stopped in for a few drinks recently, and the place was packed in the middle of a Saturday afternoon. The parking lot overflowed into the nearby medical office parking lot in the rear. Very popular place, and for good reason. Luckily, found seats at the bar, despite the crowd and the rather small bar area. If they could double the... More

We don't eat here too often because it's a little pricey, but we went for a special occasion last night. The service was not great, our waitress seemed to be in a different room most of the time, and did not refill our drinks until it was too late. When the food came some people's plates were totally cold. My... More
