We enjoyed sitting out on the patio on a lovely May afternoon. Our server was very friendly and efficient. The salmon burger was excellent and was available gluten free. My lobster roll was also very good but was a little skimpy on the lobster. Overall,...More

We went for the pizza lunch buffet ($6.95) on Monday and weren't sorry we did. The brick oven pizza has a great crust, thin like we like it. There were about 7 different pizzas to choose from plus lasagna and salad. 1/2 price margaritas were...More

Worst meal we’ve had in a long time! Steak tips were lukewarm and looked like they were microwaved. Weird taste in the dipping oil for the bread...couldn’t put my finger on it. Waited FOREVER for our bread, which ended up coming with our meal. Salmon...More

We stopped here for lunch while on our way north. We expected a joint but were quite surprised with the breadth of the menu. Cocktails were very good and there's a great selection of light and heavy foods

Went here at the suggestion of a friend who had recently been, she thought it was good and they just renovated the space, so we decided to check it out. The decor was nice, but a little on the dark side as far as lighting....More

Hands down the best wings I’ve had in a long time. They did take about 30 mins to get our food but it was worth the wait. Cooked in the Brick oven made them crispy and juicy. Well visit again!

I thoroughly enjoyed the arugula salad in a fresh bread cone. Generous portion. The cold pint from Kona Brewing was actually a local beer since Redhook / Kona is just on the other side of I-95. Very nice decor and prompt service.

This was the first time I’ve been back here since the fire they had a couple years ago. The first thing I noticed is that it looks exactly the same on the inside, in the night club area. Literally, nothing is changed. I like consistency,...More

Yes, we do still have our pizza buffet. It's $7.99, runs from 11:30am - 2pm, Monday - Friday excluding holidays and major snow storms (due to lack of staffing).

Yup, If it's a holiday weekend, you most likely will have to wait for a table. You can take a seat, if one is available, at the bar while you wait for a table. Non holiday weekends are usually good up to about 4:30 - 5:00.
