Solid place to go. Good food, clean and quiet while we were there for lunch. Server was very pleasant and the price is reasonable.

Service was truly outstanding. Our waiter was extremely attentive and took all the necessary COVID-19 precautions. We also appreciate the manager and general manager stopping by to make sure the food and service were to our liking. Great choice of music playing in the background, too.

We dined on Super Bowl night, consequently only 2-3 other tables were occupied, making for a very quiet and calm ambience. As we have allergy issues, wait staff and managers helped decide what was safe for us to eat, or could be modified for our safety. Our meals were excellent. It was a most pleasant evening.

My boyfriend and I came out for restaurant week, we wanted to try somewhere new for us. The restaurant was little dirty, tables were not wiped down, food crumbs in the floor with dirty silverware on the ground. The server was very friendly and very polite. The food was average, enjoyed my crab cakes and my boyfriend liked his steak. His mashed potatoes were cold, my roasted potatoes and green beans were not seasoned. The calamari was not good. The water tasted like it came from the faucet. We asked for lemon slices to see if it would cover the taste but did nothing. I decided to order some Coke which the Coke tasted like it came from the faucet. Since, I was disappointed in most of my meal I decided to skip dessert. Truly disappointed in my first experience here do not think I will be returning.

Each year my daughter and I choose a restaurant for Winter Restuarant week. I had been to this location before for lunch so I thought she might enjoy it. First I must say that the calamari and my waitress was the highlight of my evening! The bartender was horrible. I ordered a margherita and it tasted like maybe the mix was expired or something. He was extremely offended when I told him about it. I just thought he should know before serving it to other guests. Then I ordered a Bourbon Mule. That was horrible too. At that point I realized the problem was him... The rest of the food was okay. The restaurant week selections could have been better. Mashed potatoes came out cold but good. The steak was cooked to my liking. The waitress suggested the bacon wrapped shrimp. It was pretty tasty. Overall we had a nice night.

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.
