We were staying at the Manchester View Hotel and the receptionist highly recommended this restaurant for dinner. We arrived around 4:30 and noticed table service did not begin until 5. However we were seated at a table by the front window and told we could order drinks which we did. They provide a list of specialty drinks with a story... More

Had a wonderful meal and service was terrific. Came in at a quarter to nine and I was worried about being served. They said no problem that we were fine. Ordered one of their cocktails if the past. Sloe Gin Fiz was refreshing. Then ate a nice pot roast and lobster bisque.

This restaurant was recommended by a local. It did not disappoint. If you arrive before 6:00 pm you get a three course meal for a very reasonable price.

Also one of the our favorite restaurants anywhere! We have been here numerous times and the food is incredible. One this occasion we had our rehearsal dinner with 50 guests.

My friend and I enjoyed our supper here. The wine by the glass selection was nice and our selection of an Organic Pinot Noir Chilean wine did not dissapoint. The scrod cakes appetizer was also delicious and nicely seasoned. We both ordered the sirloin steak and found them to be very good and prepared properly. The cranberry fritters and maple... More

We chose here because of the reviews on TA and it did not disappoint. Cranberry fritters with maple butter came as complements of the house - great fritters but the maple bread was better with the bread that accompanied the meal. I ordered shrimp in wine with rice which was ok. My husbands mac cheese and lobster was home cooked... More

My title says it all. In a 1700's building, this restaurant offers a cozy atmosphere with excellent food - including great comfort food such as pot roast or mac/cheese in addition to standard fare. All delicious. Our waitress was friendly who offered great service.

I had passed this place for years, and I finally had dinner there some months ago and it was superb! My dinner companion and I were both extremely pleased with our meals, and we both had leftovers to enjoy the next day.
