We treated our family to M&S for Christmas dinner. We were seated in the private room with the curtains. Our manager was Ryan and our server was Solomon. They were very knowledgeable and courteous. We felt like the only patrons in the restaurant!

We loved not being rushed. We enjoyed our drinks before our food order was taken. We ordered steaks and seafood and each family member’s dish was presented well and tasted amazing. We then were allowed a lengthy pause before the deserts and coffees arrived. We left pleasantly full and very happy with the overall evening. M&S was the perfect ending to our perfect white Christmas.

Our hearty thanks to Ryan and Solomon as well as the chefs responsible for our fine meal.

The food left a lot to be desired. For the price we’ve had far better. Perhaps we should of ordered from the Christmas menu but, it was disappointing to say the least. Our server was great. The decor and style was nice. The bathrooms were not so clean.

Lobster tails were great. Steak was too thin for our liking, but was well prepared, and to our request. Lobster bisque was not good - no lobster to taste or to be found.
The service was great.

We were at right by the door and my wife was freezing. Manager came but could only offer his coat. He didn't even ask how our food or service was. Service was okay. Our food took forever.... like 20 min too long. Wasn't happy with this visit.

My only complaint was that I made the reservation weeks ago and then I called and asked for a table in an area and we got pretty ended up with the worst table by the entrance. It’s petty, but still annoying

Complaint: one or two of the people working to bag pickup orders did not have his
mask covering his
nose properly and another man plating food on the preparation side .
Other than that I was very satisfied. I will not return until I feel it is safer with the proper safety precautions.

Come here ever year for special occasions. It was where we came for our first date in 2014 and we were married in a small ceremony in the room behind the bar in 2017. Anniversaries and birthdays are always at M&S! The best raw oysters and migonette for the oysters that you can't get anywhere else. Always good food and the snugs offer privacy, which is also great for dining out during covid.

Steak could prepared much better for the price offered. It tasted like a meat fried in a pan rather than a steak.

Pricey but nice ambiance, quiet. Pressed chicken breast dinner was $25? Higher priced entrees came with 1 side, for near $50. Bring cash.

I can understand they close early because of COVID but don't rush your paying customers and when ordering something especially if it 3 coursed meal don't wait until the last meal is coming out to say they don't have it anymore. all because they want to make money or go home.

M & S Seafood Rest. hit another “home run” on our most recent visit. Once again we were able to dine "al fresco" - enjoying dining on the small section of sidewalk where they were ingeniously able to put a few tables. THANKS Jim! We were very pleased with the service and the food. We had a variety - appetizer, seafood, salads, etc. All excellent.
We highly recommend this restaurant for a “won’t let you down” place to take family & friends.
Kudos and thanks to all the staff here - especially Jim, Ryan, Kyle, and our fantastic server, Taylor (trained by Kyle).
Very much appreciated all that ya'll did to make our ~1 hour one-way trip well worth it!
We will return for more!

The place looked nice and inviting. It was a pleasant, quiet dinner. However, the food quality was lacking significantly. We've had better for that price range, for sure. I wouldn't go back.

It was nice, didn’t think the special for the night was worth the value but that’s my fault. The oysters were good not great. Overall I’d still dine with them I enjoyed my time im just extremely picky.
