We enjoyed our meal and the service. Our first visit to Hardcover. I enjoyed filet mignon and had ordered it medium rare and it was perfect. My husband had baked stuffed shrimp and scallops and was completely satisfied. The salad bar was a surprise both because I haven't seen one in ages and it was so good. Very generous size... More

The food is still very good. They have a huge salad bar which comes with the meals. They also make excellent drinks. The place is always crowded so it can be very loud.

Pass on the French Onion Soup...everything else is quite good enough. Above average ingredients yet rather bland, unadventurous flavors. Good for a meal if you happen to be in the area looking for a steakhouse...but not very memorable.

The first thing you notice at the Hard Cover is that I is pleasantly dim, comfortable and the shelves are filled with real books and all 4 of us enjoyed or meal very much. They have a wonderful salad bar to begin your meal with a variety of warm fresh breads and fixings for a fresh salad for you to... More

Classic steak house ambience. Busy, crowded Friday night but seated in a timely way. Wait staff attentive and helpful with specials. Three course/$20 special was terrific. 8oz beef with giant baked potato, came with salad bar and delightful apple crisp. 10oz sirloin was also delicious. Will definitely go back.

My wife and I dined on a slow Wednesday night. Restaurant is nice but dated. Front entry had an odd odor. We were seated at a nice table near the gas fireplace. The salad bar is very good. Wide selection of fresh veggies. I ordered grilled swordfish and my wife ordered baked scrod. The fish was fresh and well prepared.

Every year, we come as a family fit Easter dinner. It's beautiful, the food is wonderful, great salad bar. Not inexpensive, by any stretch of the imagination, which is why we go fit very special occasions.

I couldn't get home fast enough to write this review! The Hardcover has always been our "go to" place for special occasions--our wedding anniversary and my birthday. We like sitting in the bar side of the restaurant and we did just that tonight. We were at our table for 15 minutes before the waitress even knew we were there. This... More
