Hello, thank you for your review. We are sorry you had a difficult time with the noise and a bad experience with the smoke smell, we will look into the smoke thickness issue to improve on it in the future.

Had been there before on their "Romance Package" in the past! This time, dinner with family, table by ourselves, food excellent, our waiter "Todd" very accommodating. Well rounded menu. Table visited by two managers, asking how the experience was going. Will visit in the future for sure.

The restaurant is beautiful and well-run, but we had a few concerns that effected our experience. *The waiter was pushy, ordering two of an appetizer when we ordered one. He suggested two, we said "no, one". Ended up with two. *Bill was wrong. When our table's bill was divided, the waiter didn't ask who was paying for the apps in... More

I have dined at Longfellows numerous times, but this was my first New Years Eve experience. It was a wonderful time from start to finish. There were 5 of us women enjoying the experience, and enjoy it we did. The Shrimp Scampi appetizer was delicious. My friends ordered Prime Rib, Steaks and Filet Minion. I went off the grid and...

Longfellows is just a stones' throw from where we live. So, a quick jaunt over for their burger and drink special is a must! Huge burger with bacon, cheese, tomato and lettuce,fries and top it off with a draft beer or house wine for $13.00. Good conversation. Great food. Lovely old-world ambiance. Worth a trip even if you're not in... More

2nd visit here for dinner and because our first experience was amazing we tried again but what a disappointment. Other than the french onion and clam chowder soups which were outstanding, the rest of the visit was not the way to start the new year! The prime rib was cold and had to be sent back to be warmed up... More

Fantastic onion soup, delicious salads and a variety of entrees serves by friendly wait staff. Prices are fair and reasonable. I've eaten here regularly and it was always extremely pleasurable. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Weddings at Longfellows can take place at the hotel, or at a number of available partner venues. For couples who wish to rent the space at the hotel, they get exclusive access to the on-site restaurant, as well as a private second-floor spot for the wedding party during cocktail hour. There are no worries, they take care of everything working... More

The celebration was my Mom's 87th birthday and we told the staff that she could not make it up or down stairs. No problem! They accommodated with setting up a small private room on the main floor. It was perfect. My Mom also loves lobster but did not want the surf & turf. The waiter ( I believe his name... More

I have been coming here for over 20 years, back to the day when they had a pond in the main area. Over the years they have increased their seating areas and group gatherings which had lead to increased noise. We were seated on the second floor above the main entrance hallway. Large table of 14 in our room with... More
