All other meals very good.

We sat upstairs which was more of a family style area and lacked some ambiance. Our waitress was amazing and took great care of us. The food all 3 courses basically arrived at the same time. We had to send the main course back and ask for it to be remade since we had barely finished our soup and still had salads to eat. The food was great from start to finish.

Looked forward to a lobster roll (with the Country Inn in mind) but was disappointed. I know lobster is very expensive this year but $28 for a meager amount of lobster salad was disappointing. Next time I'll try an entrée and then decide.

Calamari was cold and soggy. We returned it only to have them do a new order and it was the same awful. When I received my burger it looks like it might have been taken out of it just an overall bad evening .My husband had the hawk and little necks, the gravy was very dark it had been way overdone.

Never disappointed. Great food & good prices. Was very impressed that when special were given, prices were also. And specials were priced along with the regular menu prices & not so high like most places that you feel you have to pass because of budget restraints.

We went on a Tuesday night. We had a booth as I requested when I made the reservation.
Kaelin was our server, she was very nice. We both had the prime rib. Cooked to perfection, absolutely delicious! There were several other choices on the menu that I'd be interested in trying, we will definitely go back.
On the way out we were greeted by Anthony, I believe he's the manager. He asked for feedback about the restaurant. We told him how pleased we were and that he will see us again soon.

Food and service were terrific. Music was too loud and it was too bright. Lowering lights and music would be better. Lisbon pasta dish was best I have ever had. Drink which was a Southern Comfort Manhattan was pricier than expected at $11.50 but it was good. Waiter Jean was an asset to your restaurant. Will bring friends back. Good luck!!!!

We have been to Palmer River a number of times this year and have always enjoyed our meals and the staff is very personable, any time we have company we bring them there as we know the food is excellent and the service is great, if you have tried them yet give yourself a treat, we prefer downstairs as upstairs is always very noisy and not the easiest stairs for elderly

worst Veal Parm dinner I have ever had. When the server brought the meal he was using a towel to hold the plate. As he placed it on the table he told me to be very careful as the plate was very hot. The pasta and sauce were completely dried out. the Veal was also dry and tough. We were with another couple and I did not want to throw a wet blanket on the night so I did not send the meal back. When I picked up the knife that was on the plate the handle rivets were so hot I could not use it. I had to ask the waitress for another knife, so she knew what was going on but did not say anything. We have eaten at this restaurant in the past and enjoyed ourselves. I do not plan on going back to this restaurant.

Best part of the meal was the bread. Burger wasn't cooked to the right temp. Entree (baked stuffed scrod) came with the wrong side and was so bland it only tasted of the breadcrumbs on the top - it desperately needed a lemon wine sauce or butter and salt. Calamari was good but not remarkable. Service was awful.

Stuffed mushrooms were great. Fresh baked rolls warm when delivered. Had the clamboil, very tasty but not a full onion. only 3 pieces. Chicken cordon bleu was very good. The shrimp scampi was delicious. Our table was by the kitchen and everything looked good coming out. Had the chocolate lava cake, very tasty.
