I like the Grog for the wide range of items in the menus. It’s a good bar and a good restaurant. If you want a little less activity jut go upstairs and eat there.

All of our group enjoyed their meals and drinks- the spinach and artichoke dip to start was a particular hit! The night we went, they were busy and the service was quite slow but the food and reasonably priced bill made up for it.

Lunch for two -- had fish and chips. Fish batter was undercooked - fish was fine. Very short on waitstaff... long wait to order and long wait for bill. Very good beer selections.

Nice warm, old time New England atmosphere but the food was a big disappointment. Worst fish & chips I’ve had since NYC. My wife’s flounder was mediocre. The bar looks like a fun place for a drink but there are many other options for dinner.
