This place is not downtown or on what I'd consider a modern main avenue. Nonetheless, it is usually very busy for dinner and we decided to try it.

The exterior could use some sprucing up but the interior is rather nice and the staff was on the ball.

We tried the Petite Salmon Cakes appetizer and the main course of Filet Mignon and Rib Eye meals with smashed potatoes, and seasoned vegetables. The meat was prepared & served on point! Kudos to the chef for serving great cuts of meat.

Recommend this place for a good slow-paced sit down dinner.

This is our second visit! The service was impeccable and our server was both professional and friendly. Everything was prepared to perfection. The calamari steaks were great!

Looks kind of aged and worn on the outside but had a wonderful dining experience. A very unique place and a huge menu with a lot of variety. Our server was great the bartender was great and the food was wonderful. Would go here again and have no problems recommending it to anyone.

I asked the waitress at The Library Restaurant and Pub which seafood dish that she would recommend and she recommended the stuffed salmon. I am so glad that she did! It was one of the best salmon dishes I have had.

Here is the description from their menu:

“Stuffed Salmon
Atlantic Salmon Filet / White Wine Alfredo Sauce . Feta Cheese / Fresh Baby Spinach / Herb & Parmesan Pesto / Choice Of Two Side Dishes”

It was fantastic! I had the sautéed green beans and rice pilaf for my sides. The waitress said that they were closed for 6 months due to the pandemic but are starting to bounce back. I highly recommend this dish!!
