Remarkably busy, but in a good way. Our server Richard was so friendly and attentive. He moved us inside when it started to rain. Most of our food
was worthy of ordering again. The shredded pork nachos, mussels, and bee sting pizza were a 10! The fish taco was overcooked and crab cakes had a lot of filler, but the remoulade was perfect. I would say that the parking lot and outside patio need
a little more attention since they are the first thing you notice on arrival.

Definitely worth the trip and will go back again.

The noise level in the dining area was very loud. It was difficult to have a conversation with people at the table without yelling. Everything else was fine but the noise took away from the whole experience. Will have to consider when wanting to get together with friends for dinner.

We went last Saturday with 3 other couples first. Due to heavy Henri rains the place was half full and it was great for catching up with friends. Yesterday it was packed inside and out and the party of 4 had to strain to hear. I think yesterday was the norm.

It seems the specials are just that- huge portions and delicious. We tried a seafood stew and a lobster corn chowder that were billed as appetizers but filling enough that all you needed to round out the meal was a salad. Otherwise there are issues- the mozzarella appetizer came ice cold, salads arrived at different times, the strip steaks (3orders) tended to be over cooked , and the crusted salmon was slightly dry. Chicken Marsala was smothered in sauce to the point of turning the haricot verts soggy. This points to timing issues in the kitchen

However the service is very accommodating- and quick- to replace items, get drinks , allow for special requests.... They save the day and at least one star. And the desserts let you leave on a high note.

Notice- be prepared to pay in cash or they will tack on a 3 1/2 percent fee.

The place is a bit rundown and needs some upgrading/cleaning outside, that’s where we sat. The wait time for food was decent we sat down at 6:50 and were done around 8:15. The lamb special and Rocco shrimp were phenomenal along with the sushi tuna which was fresh. Our waiter was very polite and attentive. Thank you!

A little on the expensive side but food was excellent. Waiter was ok, but did not stop by often enough. Had to wait awhile for requesting another round of drinks but other then that it was a great place to eat.

As usual, our dining experience @ Painters was very satisfying. The food. beverages, and wait staff were excellent, and the ambiance was comfortable. We had two young children, and they greatly enjoyed the ability to draw right on the paper tablecloth using the crayons provided. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

Overall the service was not great. This was not the waitress fault, seems she had tables on opposite sides of the restaurant and was running around. The food came out almost too quick. It tasted like it was just quickly heated and not fresh by any means. Although this was not the best experience I would give the restaurant another chance.

Used to go to Painters often when visiting a family member who lived close by.
On our drive back from shopping out east we decided to give it a try again. We enjoyed the place as we had in the past.
Seating was quick, service attentive & the atmosphere was as nice as remembered.
Many interesting menu selections & we enjoyed our orders. Good casual place to dine. We’ll be back.

We all loved the sushi tuna appetizer. It is by far one of the best we have tasted. Sadly there were only 2 servings of the special striped bass, which was totally enjoyed by 2 of our party. It would have been nice if there was another fish dish on the menu…. But we enjoyed our meals non the less.

We were there for brunch. My family had raved about dinner choices there but we ended up going for brunch for everyone’s convenience. Food was okay - nothing special. Perhaps we’ll try it for dinner sometime and hope for a better experience.
I am answering no to recommending the restaurant until we can try it for dinner. It’s clearly a popular spot so it’s possible we just had an off day there.
