    I really enjoyed this restaurant. Very old school with the service and food. By that I mean excellent! Our waitress was wonderful! I had the swordfish chop, my girlfriend had the lamb chops. I would recommend either one. All in all we really enjoyed ourselves.

    A lovely, local, dining room and bar. Drinks and portion sizes are large. The blackened salmon was prepared as it should be on an iron skillet and came out with a crisp crust and moist tender meat. The risotto was creamy with a bright tang of lemon that brought out the rich briny taste of the salmon. The seating was spacious and comfortable and the service was prompt and unobtrusive. A wonderful dining experience.

    We loved The Winthrop Arms! We have been for dinner a few times and it is a definite go to for casual dining. They have valet parking which is a must for the location. The staff are wonderful and the food is delicious, there is also a full bar! There were 4 of us and we ordered stuffed mushrooms as our appetizer, Baked stuffed shrimp, seafood scampi, chicken parmigiana and their famous chicken pot pie as our entrees. Each meal was delicious, my absolute favorite was the pot pie,I know why it’s famous! Coffee, a berry shortcake and a piece of lemon cello cake for dessert, both were yummy! We highly recommend The Arms for a nice casual night out.

    Food was great, a little loud this time because the one table next to us was very excited with their conversation, Diderot was good I got the apple crisp but it was not as good as it was in the past. The bread changed from the last time we where there it was good but was better before they changed it. Our server was great and a sweet girl.

    Received a recommendation for the fried clams, but they were not good tonight. They were overcooked, and some of them were going bad. The baked haddock, potato wedges, and onion rings were excellent. The bottle of wine we got was a good value, not the huge markup so many places have. The only problem with the wine, is that it was stored in a warm place. Red wine tastes best when slightly cooler than room temperature, not 10 degrees warmer. If only our server had checked back, I would have sent the clams back for another try. By the time he came back, we were basically finished eating.

    The place was a bit noisy last night but not usually. Our waitress, Sophia, was excellent. Food a bit pricy - over $100 with no appetizers, no dessert and only one glass of wine. Food was delicious as usual.

    I got the prime Rib. There wasn’t a bone. I would prefer a bone. Wouldn’t buy it without a bone. Mashed potatoes were Luke warm in mashed potatoes with prime rib need to be steaming hot with butter. I might come back I don’t know but the little things are the things that count. You’re extremely busy you probably don’t need my business anyway thank you

    We are frequent diners at Winthrop Arms and fans of this restaurant. The clams were outstanding, fresh and crispy as always. My husband loved his Tuna Steak. I hadn’t had their Chicken Pot Pie in a long time and craved it. However, I have to say that for the first time in all the times I’ve ordered it, it was quite salty. I was disappointed as I was looking forward to it. I mentioned it to our server as I thought she’d want to tell the chef. Of course we’ll return as it’s a fave but I hope when I order it again it will be better!
