We had the prix fixe meal and it was delicious. Best Brussel sprouts we have had in a long time. Burger and fish and chops were very good and dessert was delicious. Also a very good craft beer list with a lot of local CT beers and a couple of well known from other areas.

I loved it! The food was delicious and the menu had plenty to choose from. The dinner specials were perfectly priced for mid week, and I would definitely go back!

Our wait staff disappeared I had to keep going up to the bar to close out my tab, get another drink etc. My steak was good, but DEFINITELY NOT $30 a plate good. Not a very good experience here. Over priced and lousy service. I’m new to the neighborhood and I won’t be returning

We drive by all the time and thought we'd check it out.
The Good - service (very friendly), beer selection & food (recommend the wings).
The Not so Good - Pretty pricey for a strip mall type joint. $30 for a NY Strip was a bit much. Fish & chips for $20?

Other than spending $200 before tip for a family of four (we had apps & beers, no dessert) it was good.

Our waitress was great and all the food on the other tables looked delicious. But when our food arrived it was cold and seemed like the kitchen was closing and they were just done for the day.

Food was good, service was good. Since we go often early afternoon on a Sunday I would be happy if there were more lunch and less breakfast options but that’s jut me.....Would go again!

We have been here a few times and have been pleased with the food and the service. Eclectic menu with some delicious options. Loved the vegetable risotto and the fettuccine bolognese. The family enjoyed the burgers and the vegan option. Good choice!

I went for the music and the Dirt Road Pickers were excellent. I liked the vibe of the place. The food was fine. I had burgers. Nothing noteworthy. Beer selection was very good. Bill was a bit pricier than I would have expected for burgers, even with the big bar tab we ran up.

We dined on a Sunday evening. They were fairly busy and very gracious but understaffed. The experience was a little disappointing but would give them another shot, as food was generally good and had a nice vibe.

Had dinner on a Friday evening (happened to be trivia night). Our reservations were for 7PM and were honored in a timely fashion. We ordered drinks and wine all of which were very good. Our appetizers were unique and delicious. Our entrees (fettuccine bolognese and the salmon) were excellent. We did enjoy our desserts and also joining in the trivia contest which started at 8PM. We will go back again.

Absolutely a wonderful experience. I was one my first date and not only was the ambience perfect but it wasn’t too busy, not too much noise where we couldn’t hear each other. The food and drinks were spot on, our waitress was very on top of things making sure we had what we needed. Prices aren’t advertised online and I wasn’t expecting the good to be a little on the higher end. But for how the night went overall it was worth every dollar!

Like the menu and food very much. Third time there and service remains off. Pleasant staff but lacking attentiveness. The band was very good but too loud, hard to enjoy dinner conversation. Would be better if sound was turned down a bit or started playing later. We will give it another try.

Food was excellent...service was poor, (90 minutes to get entrees.) Trivia night DJ was very loud...but if you like energetic ambiance this might be your cup of tea.

Was there for Saturday dinner. Only 2 other tables were occupied plus some bar seats. Food was tasty and fresh. Menu had variety of choices including 3 course "tasting menu" for $25. Crab cake appetizer very good, fish and chips good (could have used cole slaw), ahi tuna entree excellent with nice veggie accompaniments. Chocolate cake dessert excellent. Great service, pleasant ambiance.

Me and my boyfriend thought we would give this restaurant a shot after it had been highly recommended to us by a friend. We could not have been happier with our experience and I’m excited to say I think we’ve found our new favorite place!!
The cocktails were extraordinary and the food was so tasty, but above everything else our server was so patient and helpful. I loved how comfortable the staff made us feel there from the moment we arrived to our goodbyes at the end of the night.
Needless to say, I will be back there very soon!
