Diner Reviews
  • "A co-worker wanted to go out after work and catch up. I didn't know of anyplace close by, so I used Open Table to find something. I had driven past this little gem for months but never stopped in. It was about 6PM when I entered, and notice one of the members from the band bringing in gear to set up. There were a few couples at the bar having drinks and appetizers. The place is a nice place to frequent. The drinks are pretty good, and they have a happy hour! The food is tasty and well prepared. I would recommend."

  • "The staff and owner are very nice and welcoming! The restaurant was easy to find and had good parking. They did not seem to know we had a reservation but it was not a problem. Our party arrived at 6:30 we ordered 4 appetizers to share. They were out of one and had to substitue, the second appetizer, the cheese was spoiled. We asked for a second serving of bread and it took a while to get it. They were out of Malbec. Entrees were mixed up, steaks were brought out to two people who ordered differently. The menu said panfried Tilapia but the fish came broiled. Dessert was on the house because of the issues. I think they need to limit their menu until they get more established and they need one additional server like the night we were there."

  • "Restaurant was empty when we got there. Took a long time for our food to come out which was fine as we were not in a hurry. Forgot to tell the waiter no garlic and as always with almost every restaurant, the vegetables came out smothered in garlic. Asked for Salmon to be rare and it came out more medium well than rare. Overall though, i think if we were a bit more specific with the order, it would have been fine. Service was good and attentive. Drinks were good too. I would recommend giving it a try, especially if nothing else is around."

  • "Everything was great. We had the clams casino and clams on the half shell, which were perfect. My husband had the seafood salad which was fresh and delicious. We also had the lobster ravioli which my daughter-in-law raved over. They've changed some prices for lunch (reduced) which made it even more of a value. Always happy to go to Stapleton's."
