    All four of us enjoyed our meals. The portions were generous, and the food was good. I especially enjoyed the seafood chowder. Our server was just fine. Not overly attentive, but just enough. The tables are nicely spaced with lots of booths. The fireplace is a nice touch.

    We wanted to love this place but it felt like an overpriced TGIFridays. I don’t really understand the high rating. The French onion soup was good, but the salads were swimming in dressing (and I’m usually an extra dressing person). I’d skip this one. People were really nice though. I bet they would do more casual/bar food well instead.

    Nolan's has superior food. We have tried many things on the menu and they are all excellent. They need to NEVER loose their chef. We ate in the outdoor porch, the temp outside was 55, and it was very comfortable. BUT the noise level of the porch made it tough at times to have a good conversation at our table of 6. BUT the noise level would not keep me from going there again and trying something new/different on the menu.

    Unfortunately I ordered the rack of lamb which was sinewy and impossible to cut through. To the restaurant’s credit, half of the meal cost was forgiven.

    Excellent service Our server Joe had a great sense of humor and checked in frequently to see that we were taken care of. Class act. Unmatched food quality Best place anywhere around the area for steak and seafood. Everything is cooked to perfection and in the rare case that it isn’t they will quickly re-do. Highly recommend filet mignon, lobster tails, lobster roll and Captain’s Platter. Vegetable side dish option is always so flavorful and well prepared.

    The food was decent but the appetizer and the main courses were served on a bed of shredded lettuce that was supposed to be a garnish? I had to move my food and brush the lettuce out of the way to cut my food up prior to eating. For the price, I didn’t feel that was something I should have to do nor should shredded normal lettuce be used as a garnish under a meal at all. Other than that, food was pretty good. Quick service

    My poke bowl was unlike any I have ever had The tuna had a rub on it that was definitely not for fish. Awful. Romaine lettuce as a base. Really? In a poke bowl.. Rice was like mush with a ginger flavoring that was overpowering. Avocado was hard. I did not enjoy my meal. Plus they brought the wrong wine and cocktail. My husband fish was so salty he could hardly eat it. Won’t go back.
