It was a quiet day---and we enjoyed that. the Christmas decorations were still up and they were lovely and tasteful.as usual. Our waitress was attentive and very very efficient. we had a different array of foods----prime rib.chicken marsala,and scallops. Everyone enjoyed their meals sitting by the fire. Couldnt have asked for better on a cold January Sunday afternoon.

My husband and I along with my parents had an early dinner. It was lovely ambiance (fire going in dining room) and wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was delicious. The one request I keep making is for them to bring back the bread loaves instead of the dinner rolls they now serve. I’d happily pay a bit more for those delicious loaves. Bring them back! Overall a nice night out!

I personally wouldn’t come back. It didn’t feel welcoming. The menu was different from what I saw online. The menu that was offered was very limited. My kids had Salmon and they didn’t eat the rice or squash mash. My steak was bland.

Went with a party of 5. It was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I had the filet. Cooked perfectly to order and delicious. One had baked scallops, 2 had steak tips and one had fish and chips. All looked fabulous, all said delicious. Service was friendly and spot on. Will DEFINITELY be back!

We had a lovely dinner at the Lafayette house. It was a quiet night, but we could hear the entertainment in the bar which was fun. Food was cooked very well, served swiftly and hot, leftovers even delicious the next day. Our waitress was very nice and was attentive but unobtrusive. Overall an enjoyable night out for four adults and I look forward to taking the children so evening as well. We found out too late but on thanksgiving they have a buffet dinner and for those who love buffet, it sounds like a great idea for thanksgiving 2022!

Thanksgiving lunch buffet was tasty all around. Turkey was well seasoned, but a little dry. The stuffing and gravy were tasty and the option for roast beef was cooked perfectly. The best part of the meal was the crème brûlée. The chocolate cake was good; pumpkin pie and apple crisp were ok; wouldn’t order again them again. Service was good solid.

Can't beat their liver and onions, squash was delicious and roasted potatoes out of this world. Understaffed like everyone other restaurant there so you feel awful as Jean and her crew work frenziedly to take care of everyone. Could use a better system for the fist come in the bar area as it gets very confusing as to who was there first and some people get completely overlooked but we were fortunate and had great service.

My husband and I had a lovely meal on Saturday evening. We were seated in the dining room with the fireplace. It was cozy and food was delicious! Husband had a burger, which he says is the best around and I had the baked scrod which came with roasted potato and a delicious squash with warm seasonings. We ate early (5ish) and it did fill fairly quickly, so noise level increased but it wasn’t distracting. Overall a wonderful cozy place to have a meal on a fall evening!

We enjoyed our lunch at the Lafayette House, it’s a charming old building. Unfortunately, the menu is much reduced from what it was previously and perhaps the online menu should be updated.

A special place where family and friends from Mass and RI have met and celebrated over the years. A warm friendly place and people who have been there for years. Food and service are very good and they support an unrushed time together.

We have been coming here on and off for probably 15 years or more. The prime rib here is always good. This was our first time back since the pandemic and we found the food to be better than what we had experienced previously. Proteins were cooked perfectly and the sides were all very flavorful. We love the historic setting of the restaurant although it can be a bit quirky at times (i.e. that wobbly chair isn't because of the furniture, it's actually a loose floorboard. Very much looking forward to going back soon!

No one rushed us out. The food was great and reasonably priced. The waitress was caring. We ate outside and had live music also. Many of the tables seemed to be full of regulars who knew each other and were in no rush to leave so that tended to bring the noise level up a little but I think it all lead to a little bit more of a relaxed atmosphere. Perfect night!

First time dining there. Food was good, my only complaint would be that menu needs to be updated to reflect actual prices. Ordered the Prime Rib. Price on menu was $32, but was charged $38 when bill arrived. Partner ordered filet mignon. Price on bill was also more than what menu reflected.

Dinner and service was great...Couldn't ask for anything better. The guys had a fish sandwiches and there had to be a whole side of haddock fish on them! My friend had the French Onion soup to start and said this was her New Favorite place for the soup. Then we both had salads with chicken on them. Very very good! and plenty! Definitely will go back there in the future and would recommend to all our friends! More reasonable than those places down the street!

Service was slow considering it wasn’t overly crowded. Food was ok, crackers for chowder were stale, soft drink was flat and prime rib tasted more like pot roast, but was cooked perfectly.

I ordered Filet Mignon and requested Au Poivre. When the steak was brought to the table they had put Bernaise Sauce on most of the steak which I really dislike, so what was a delicious piece of meat was ruined with the sauce. I distinctly asked that no sauce or gravy be added to my meal, so it was very disappointing for such a costly piece of meat. There was only one other table occupied so can’t blame on being busy. I will try again and because what part disintegrated have the sauce on it was Delicious!
