We made a reservation based on a recommendation from some friends whom we always trust because they are foodies too. I checked the reviews which were quite varied before leaving. We also never judge a place based on how busy it is or is not because some people go to certain restaurants because they are cheap rather than spend a few extra dollars for quality. We were happy with the 2 for $20 lobsters you must preorder. We ordered the bisque and clam chowder (more potato than clams) because it was highly recommended on trip advisor and they proved delicious. We ordered a couple of vegetable sides because the lobsters come plain...the cole slaw was delicious - the beans were okay. They do bring out warm rolls. Always appreciate when a place warms up the bread (particularly on such a frigid night)...the bread itself was okay. Waitress recommended the homemade cheesecake which we ordered a la mode. It was light and delicious. The service was close to perfection. We will go again.

Stopped here out of desperation. had out of town guests and Northampton was a zoo.
What a find! The place was perfect! The best lobster bisque I think I've ever had. My sister had the clam chowder-- just as good!
Seafood, burgers, the usual. But fresh and perfectly cooked.
The waitress was literally charming. Friendly and helpful and endlessly patient.

Prices were good, coffee strong enough for once!

Can't wait to go again.

We tried the lobster special yesterday( 3 lobsters, $20.00). What a mistake. The lobster was served warm at best, had no juice, dry as can be and tasted fishy. I have been cooking and eating lobster for a long, long time and have never had ones this bad. They were either cooked and then frozen and then warmed up or they were cooked several days ago. Horrible. Don't waste your money. Go somewhere else.

Visited on a recent Sun and had a very good meal. The salad was excellent, prime rib done just the way I ordered it and served with a baked potato, and acorn squash all very tasty. My companion enjoyed a nice piece of haddock with baked potato and squash. Waitress was very friendly and checked on us several times during our meal. Can't think of anything that could have made our meal more enjoyable. Will be back again.

We have been coming in for years. This restaurant has gone up and down more than a roller-coaster. We all thought they were finally on the right track the last few months under that young new manager but with him now gone, this place looks like they've cut the head off of a chicken. It is sad to watch. I think we are finally done with fish tales.
