We had a fabulous time at Robert's Scratch Kitchen. We ordered the fried mozzarella and calamari as our appetizers. They were both to die for. I ordered the double cut pork chop and my husband had the flank steak. Both meals were outstanding!

Love this place. Owner and staff are always friendly and diligent. Food always cooked perfectly. Very nice family atmosphere. I have been at least 10 times and it always great, but this first time a didnt like the new menu. I not saying it was bad just not any of favorites, but anything you ask for they will make.

This was our first visit to RSK. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish! Every staff member was very pleasant and extremely attentive! Our waiter took the time to explain all gluten free options! I especially liked that the specials were shown in photos on a tablet. All the food was delicious!

It was wonderful to be in a restaurant where EVERY menu item was gluten free- no having a few choices while everyone else got a full menu of choices. The food was delicious from the calamari to the bread to the salads…I will definitely be going back and highly recommend it.

Our party of 4 had a terrific waiter, who was quite helpful in informing my mother, who has severe allergies to white and black pepper as well as a few herbs, that any dish she wanted would be made to order. Many restaurants tell you that they make their dishes from scratch, but they actually have several sauces and items pre-made, and can't or won't adapt them. Robert's Scratch Kitchen is TRULY scratch.
While her pork chop was a bit overcooked, she still ate it all--and it was more like a double chop, which thrilled her. All portions for our group were sizable, too. We enjoyed linguini with clams sauce (FRESH!), a steak special, and calamari. We will definitely be back!

The staff was excellent with smiles and caring service. The menu had good choices available. We startedWith fresh oysters, a meatball salad, and fried artichoke hearts. The artichoke hearts needed a moist sauce but we’re good. I then had the cod which I thought came with broccoli rabe but it was served with spinach …still good.
I would return again!

We live 1/2 hour west of the restaurant, went to meet friends from NYC on a Monday night , so a quiet night. Excellent food, including steaks, fish and appetizers. Owner appeared twice to make sure all was well. Loved it.

The clams were full of sand. The open table item was not smooth. Artichoke app was ok at best. The service was excellent. Food, not so much.

We were warmly greeted and seated immediately. All the staff was attentive and friendly. The food was delicious- stuffed clams appetizer ( we could have made a meal out of it) Halibut special with zucchini, chick peas, and tomatoes , shrimp tagliatelle. Dessert was chocolate lava cake and vanilla ice cream with an expresso sauce which they offered to make the decaf version for me.
