I love the atmosphere, lots of local history and interesting architecture. The meals are portioned well, prepared well, and served well. The menu has plenty of variety for any palette. And the dessert menu leaves nothing to be desired! My favorite is the peanut butter pie - the crust is unique and unexplicably good! Also - their cheese sticks! Not... More

We went to JR Maxwell because of the high ratings on trip advisor and were terribly disappointed. When we arrived there were a couple of other people in front of us waiting for a table. The host put our name on a waiting list for a table. We went into the bar to have a drink before dinner and were... More

Discovered J.R's through Trip Advisor. Had a great steak, wonderful service, and after dinner found out we were sitting next to one of the owners. Haddock bland taste but great Mashed potatoes. Two bars, three separate rooms. Very well decorated and very welcoming. I will go back!

Traveling through and stopped for lunch. I ordered lobster roll with melted butter for dipping. Great!! Loads of nice chunks of lobster, warm toasty roll. Fries were average. Typical pub decor and menu, but lots of seafood options. Service was prompt and friendly.

We arrived with a group of 8 after making reservations a day in advance, and the service was simply terrible! One meal wasn't served until the rest of us had finished eating, and we had waited a long time for the meal to arrive so we could all eat together! We finally complained to the manager who went to get... More

After a long day of driving we checked into our hotel and the consulted Trip Advisor to find a place to eat. This restaurant appeared to be the best option and it was significantly better than we anticipated. Nice atmosphere, good service, and tasty food. Shared a piece of key lime pie - outstanding!

Went to lunch with friends and the food order was two cheeseburgers, chicken salad sandwich, and a deep fried haddock sandwich. We were all pleased with out choices, even to the sides, home made chips, french-fries and cole slaw. Service was very friendly and efficient. Food arrived at the same time and was hot/cold as it should be. I love... More
