  • Disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/1/2014
    We went on Labor Day and were glad to find one of the few restaurants open on the holiday. It was a mistake - I think their regular chef was on vacation. The dinner was disappointing. I had a mediocre dinner salad, and my husband said his fish did not taste fresh. My son enjoyed his sandwich, but the waffle fries were terrible. To their credit, I will say that the portions were generous, and the service was very good. The restaurant has a much nicer ambience than I remembered - a more elegant place than you would expect in that setting. But that does not make up for lackluster food. I'm not sure whether we will give it one more shot, but if so it would be on a normal night, rather than a holiday.

    We each got a salad: Beet salad and beef salad. The beet salad was delicious, but the beef salad was tough.....cooked to specification, but definitely tasted like a lower cut of beef. The drinks were made to perfection and the wait staff was very attentive. The prices are reasonable for a neighborhood restaurant and the outside seating is comfortable with umbrellas for the sun.

    The ribs and shrimp were great, as was the fish fry. My daughter didn't like the dressing on the ceasar salad and didn't finish it. Scallops were a little lacking in flavor. The service was great, drinks were good. Plan to come again because it is so convenient to the North Shore.

    I chose this restaurant because I would have the option of dining indoors or outdoors. We dined outdoors. I had the french-kissed burger. I rarely eat meat but I was glad I did. The only reason I did not eat it all was that the portion size was large for me. The side salad with it was very fresh. The waiter was attentive but not overwhelmind.

    had a nice time, food was pretty tasty. Could have used a few more selections, as there were a lot of seafood choices but not too much for carnivoirs. Nice anc cozy and we didn't have to yell. I like quiet restaurants! great atmosphere and really good service.

    We were a little later than usual getting out the door for what we knew would have to be a fairly quick turnaround Friday evening dinner. NSB happened both to take a last minute reservation and was on the way to somewhere we need to be later. We hadn't been there for many years but what a great re-discovery! Service was thorough and prompt. Food was wonderful. We'll definitely keep this one on the list!

    Food is always great. Nice bar atmosphere. Ice cream drinks are huge and delicious. Last time we were there, as our server walked by to wait on other tables, he bumped into our table no less than 6 times. Sometimes he apologized, sometimes he didn't. We even moved it a couple of times, to no avail. Luckily, our red wine didn't spill. It was quite comical after a while. The red wine helped.

    We looked for a last minute place to eat on Valentine's Day and was a little suspect as there were many time slots available that day.... HOWEVER, we were not disappointed.. Tthe entrees were superb and done to perfection and not rushed at all. The restaurant was not crowded for a Valentine's Day and with mature guests who know great food! It was very quiet to have a conversation with no compounding loud overridiing Musak. We actually were able to view the Olympics on the TV in the bar area while enjoying our dinner. It had been years since our last visit to NSB and likely we won't let this much time go by again..... will try the outdoor seating whenever Spring arrives....

    The food was good with large portions. The food came in a reasonable time. Overall, this was a good experience. The only critical comment is that the food was a bit overpriced. For the price, they could have included some good hot homemade bread or a small dinner salad.
