Had a reservation for 7:30pm on Valentine’s Day. For some reason they couldn’t accept my reservation. The major issue I had was the hostess stating that they could seat us if we could be out in an hour in front of the entire waiting area. We were both embarrassed and promptly left and went elsewhere.

Historically we’ve had great experiences at Cantwell’s for brunch but this case was unacceptable.

I must say i enjoy the brunch here more than dinner. That said, we had a lovely meal; I had the Cantwell version of a BIG MA with fries and a pickle. Others had salmon and other burgers. Dessert was delicious.

Food is good. Prices are okay— especially burgers. Entrees are good. Beer and wine selection nice. Takes forever to get anything. Food or drink. Dinner took 2 hours.

We went for my husband's birthday. We were seated within five minutes for brunch. We sat right by the fireplace. (How cozy) It was a pleasant experience. The drinks were delicious. I think we will return, next time for dinner. My only complaint was the meat selection. No alternative for pork or beef.

We enjoy Cantwell's - we go often in the late afternoon as the place is quiet(er) . The food is good but the menu is limited and doesn't change as much as it should. The wait staff is largely young and pleasant; the reception area and staffing is probably the least attractive aspect of the Cantwell's experience as it is often abandoned or staffed by a young woman who has absolutely no clue about customer service (not rude, just 'unconscious').

Outstanding meals. Very creative. It was Tapas night and there were 4 items to chose from. My wife opted for pan seared scallops which would have been a good option for Tapas,. I had the pork tenderloin on sweet potatoe mashers and greens. Very well done.

Save room for desert. Ordered the French toast bread pudding. Fabulous.

Sat near the active fire place (gas vs wood logs). Nicely decorated for the holidays.

Enjoyable relaxing and fun experience. Atmosphere of small and mid-sized rooms in early 1900’s building. Menu has local items that are tasty and very well presented. Great place for a special occasion (for us New Years Eve), or a afternoon meal. Found the service friendly and helpful, yet not intrusive. We have been here several times over the last couple of years and always enjoyed the experience. Definitely would recommend...

This was my second time this month I went for brunch - that says something! Excellent food, excellent brunch menu options, good pricing and all 4 times I’ve been to Cantwell’s this month (2 brunch 2 dinner) Taylor was my server. She is a cheerful excellent waitress.
