The Linwood was destroyed by fire on October 11, 1925.

We went for a girls lunch. Every time I've been there everything was exceptional. This is one of my favorite restaurants. Only complaint was the waitress was not very friendly. I understand, she may have been sad or stressed about something unrelated to us. That is the only unfortunate thing about this visit. We have always had very good, friendly wait staff and bar staff in the past. We will definitely be back!

Server was very nice and informative. Bacon wrapped dates were crispy and delicious, wedge salad was good, burger was very good and cooked exactly as asked for. Plus the live music by Miss Caitlin Bell was amazing. A real treat.

Overall great experience. Initially, there was a confusion between waiters as to who was serving us- so we waited a bit to have our order taken. But after that, the service was spectacular. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was so relaxing and chill. Will definitely return for another date night.

Amazing! Delicious food coupled with strong, original drinks keep us coming back for more. The staff is attentive and personable. It also doesn't hurt that the decor is my favorite color: turquoise. Ask to sit in the sunroom and make sure you get the chips and cheese sauce 😁

Beautiful place. Service was good. Cocktail drinks were delicious but were a little on the small side. We ordered from the pre fixed menu. Fried chicken was good but needed some sauce on the side. The slaw and grits were delicious. My friend ordered the salmon and it was delicious as well. Chicken liver mousse was good and arugula salad was delicious.

This is one of my go to restaurants in downtown Bayshore. The food is always fresh (the date appetizer is a must have), the wine and spirits are always perfectly chilled and the wait staff is superb. Not to mention the gorgeous decor. Maybe I should stop talking, I dont want it to be difficult to get a table next time 😉

Great atmosphere, food was delicious. Tried the Naan sampler, the octopus, and frito misto. Get extra bread and dip away. Had arugula salad with steak, excellent. Food was not fussy, but fresh and flavorful. The brussel sprouts were excellent too. My husband liked the fish special, fluke stuffed with crabmeat with fingerling potatoes. Would go back.

I am probably a "foodie" when it comes to restaurants. I had one of the BEST salads I have ever had at this restaurant. The appetizer was delicious too. My entree did leave something to be desired, but the chef and waitress were very accomodating. My friend's entree looked delicious. Worth a trip back for the salad and to try a different entree. Next time, will start with some yummy sounding cocktails!!
