Yes - But it is a rather loud restaurant. A few noise panels inside would be very helpful. This is a more casual restaurant than one for a relaxing meal.

First time we had visited and had a terrific meal - burgers for the kids, crab cakes and the hanger steak for us! Excellent service from beginning to end. Definite return visit in our future.

Food and value and were good.
Service was lacking. Couldn't even get a refill from my waitress. I got her attention and asked for a refill and she said would refill it. But she took my glass and never came back with a refill.
Lucky for us another waiter noticed our sons glass was empty and offered to refill it and I asked for another glass and drink since she had taken my glass and forgot about us.

Meh. This was an over-priced lunch that I wish I could do-over. Not great, not terrible. Just so-so. Also: The food was extremely salty. Don't have plans to go back.

We had a party of six. We are bourbon afficenados and that is on reason we chose this restraunt. We don't mind paying a higher price for the special bourbons we ordered, but the cocktails were small. Twenty-eight dollars for a small Manhattan was a bit much. The service was rather slow. The food was good, especially the ribs and lobster sandwich. If we go back, we would order a glass of wine.

Took a friend there for a birthday lunch, notated this on the opentable reservation. Was disappointed when it was not acknowledged in any way. Most restaurants will do something celebratory. Will go elsewhere from now on..

The place is pretty. The server was very pleasant. The food was a disappointment. The fish and chips was fishy and the coating on the fish was not appetizing, the burger was extremely oversalted and underwhelming. The brussel sprout appetizer would have been great but also too salty, even though they are prepared with salt and vinegar, the salt was too much. The cake we got was dry, dense and did not seem freshly baked at all.

We sat outside on a nice patio on a pleasant April evening. Our waiter was very nice and attentive. We got the brussels sprouts appetizer and it was delicious. Very crispy, quite addictive. I got the fried lobster roll and will not get it again. It was good, but I prefer a traditional roll with a mixture of tail and claw. I found the tail to be stringy. I'll try something else next time. Greg got the salmon salad and loved it. It came with a lemon vinaigrette, which was tangy and tasty. This is a very good restaurant. Prices are very reasonable..

This restaurant does not disappoint. Service tonight from Isabelle was great and good conversation! Each time we have come the staff has been first class which makes you want to come back. We finally broke out of our 'favorite foods' mode and tried two new dishes. Both excellent! The Grouper Fish & Chips and the Salmon.

We enjoyed a great lunch here. My husband was in the mood for a Guinness, but they don’t stock it, so they brought him a few samples of others. He chose one that he was very happy with. The burger was delicious, chicken & waffles 👍and all the other items were wonderful. I would recommend anytime

Great experience. Went with my wife and another couple. Waitress was knowledgable and receptive. The place is small, but didn't feel cramped with seating. Cocktails were tasty as we tried a few of their own creations from their menu. I had a delicious braised brisket sandwich, my wife had a Cobb salad with fried chicken, and the other couple each had the Roasted Turkey Waldorf salad. Everyone was pleased with their choices, but the consensus is that my brisket sandwich looked the best :-) We had the delicious brussel sprouts as an appetizer... highly recommended. Only bummer was that they were out of the Bavarian Pretzel app which we wanted to try, which was a bit weird as we had early (6:00 pm) reservations, but that was no biggie. We'll try them next time.
