My husband and I came here for our 6 months wedding anni. It was so delicious and we loved the bartender Gio, he was awesome to have conversation with and made us feel welcome. Thank you Gio!

Food was cold and server made me feel like we were "bothering" him. I truly haven't been served by a waiter like that in a very long time. Ruined my experience. My group enjoyed their time together and that was all that really matter to me in the end.

Very disappointed! The service was not good. They made you wait with reservations and the place was practically empty, they served entree before appetiers were done, server took bill off table before we left which I’ve always understood is a no no. Food was good not great. The total bill for 2 was over $140. I would expect a MUCH better experience from any restaurant with those prices. The ambiance and decor is also outdated. I do not recommend there are far better choices in the area.

Terrible experience! Poor service or rather NO service at all. My family waited 35 minutes from being seated before our "waiter" came to our table. No apology, took our drink and appetizer order then more WAITING. It took 50 minutes from our being seated to get 2 glasses of water and 1 ice tea. Our waiter just walked back and forth from one end of the room to the other not seeming to accomplish any interaction with his tables??? I got up and asked the hostess to speak with the manager, was told he was BUSY and it would be a while! At that point I just went and got my family and left. I had a reservation, MY birthday dinner, gift card and even a Landry's Select Club. DO NOT eat at this so called "restaurant", No service, No courtesy and NO attention to their customers. WORST restaurant experience I've ever had!!!

Other individuals food was good. I had the fish and chips and my fish was overcooked and as result, not tasty at all. This was during the veteran day meals. I believe my meal just got lost in the bunch. I only at a bite and the rest just went to waste.

Fish (flounder) was excellent. Pilaf was tasty, but I didn't recognize the spices it had. House red wine (StonyBrook Cab??) was excellent! I am very thankful to M&S for the appreciation given to Veterans.

This restaurant is great for food service and ambiance. Every year they offer a free meal to veterans and Gold Star families. I feel so grateful to accept that offer. It does something to me, to look around and see so many brothers and sisters in arms, being treated with dignity and thanks!

I've come to this restaurant multiple times, and every time, I have a lovely experience here! It's never overly crowded, so you always get good, attentive service. From the host to the servers, everyone is very polite and welcoming. THE BREAD HERE IS AMAZING! It always comes out super fresh and piping hot with the most amazing whipped butter. The seafood dishes are some of the best I've had. I like that they offer a variety of fishes. They are always cooked perfectly and topped with a delicious savory sauce. Their clam chowder is also a must-order! I'd recommend this place for any special occasion or date night! They have a large dining room, so I think they can easily accommodate large parties as well.

I was so disappointed with the service, or lack of, that we likely won't be back to this location. The food was good, but it took too long for our waitress to bring drinks, pepper, anything we needed or asked for. The Manager was complacent about the complaint and I didn't feel they cared about their customers or how they were served. We sat in the bar, if that makes a difference on service levels, patrons should be told before sitting. The couple next to us experienced a similar situation and was also complaining and saying they wouldn't return.
