From the beautiful view and scenery to the delicious food. First time experience was incredible. I will definitely be coming back!
Amazing decor. Very different from any other restaurant you will go to and the service and food is excellent. Highly recommend making reservations before going.
We’ve been going to Rats for years. We’ve always had a wonderful experience. This time we did have to wait for our table for a bit. But considering the power had been out that day from the storm and the weather was calling for rain and we are in a pandemic I will give them a pass on this one. The food was amazing as always and the ambience is one of a kind! Continues to be one of my all-time favorite restaurants and places to visit.
Clambake was extraordinary!! Know that you have to alert Rat’s in advance that you are ordering clambake, offered every Thursday eve in July and August. Well worth it!! Ambience and service were exceptional, as usual! Can’t wait to return!!
Our favorite.. beautiful setting, great food, prepared well, served well, wonderful service!
Incredible outdoor dining! Excellent food, service, and waterfront view. Will be coming back and recommending to friends!
Amazing as always!
Maintains the usual excellent food and service while taking all necessary precautions to keep staff and diners safe.
We celebrated my birthday at Rat's on Saturday August 1st and it was so peaceful and just wonderful to be back to one of my favorite restaurants.
Having been to Rats Cafe a few times, it's hard to say anything new. The menu seemed a little smaller than usual, probably due to COVID 19, but everything else was just wonderful. We loved the brussel sprouts side, the crispy huge home fries, the really interesting burger and the chocolate slab of gel with rasberry sauce, rasberries on top and more chocolate sauce. Yum, yum. Totally sated!!!
I was going to honor the memory of my mother. It was her favorite place. They seated us (fate?) at her favorite table and I enjoyed a lovely meal and cocktail. The view is extraordinary out on the patio overlooking the pond. The mist gently envelopes the art installations in the water, the fish leap in the pond and people stroll the bridge that remind you of Monet’s garden. A beautiful experience!
Great time service and ambiance was awesome
The best delightful outside dining experience!!!
We lucked out with a beautiful evening- not too hot, a gentle breeze and blue skies with puffy clouds sailing by. Rat's sits in an idyllic location along the lily pad covered pond with weeping willows reaching downward. Our table was on the patio, just a few feet from the water's edge. We were offered shade by the large trees across the pond. Dinner was amazing with surprises along the way. Delicious, warm popovers and the Chef treated to fresh madeleines at the end of the dinner. Overall, a perfect night. PS Very Covid aware.
Our dinner there was simply perfect. The ambiance, food, and scenery were just perfect for our get together. We had the opportunity to walk around and take some beautiful pictures that will remind us of an enchanting place and a wonderful dinner.
Great food and atmosphere
Came for the Lobster/Clam bake special. Was prepared well be it lacked some of the usual accompaniments (melted butter, cocktail sauce, etc. Service was prompt, curious and very accommodating.
Always enjoyed dining at Rat’s! I am hoping they will start up Happy Hour again soon! Also would like to see a menu change more frequent.
We went for the seafood feast and it was very good. The setting is beautiful, our server was pleasant and attentive.
We would return for dinner or another meal.
We always love going there.
Great food and beautiful atmosphere.
We got married there!
Fantastic dining experience! The food was excellent and the service was perfectly adhering to current pandemic protocols. Well done indeed!!!
Definitely for a special occasion - but how wonderful. Waterside of a warm summer evening. Like another world. Delicious food. We could have stayed forever.
Was my first time out to eat since March enjoyed it immensely.
First time here and LOVED it! Lobster clambake was delicious!
We ordered the lobster and clam bake. It took over an hour to get served and when it arrived the shrimp were raw, the mussels were unopened, and the potatoes were extremely undercooked. We have been to rat's previously and our experience was very good but this meal was extremely disappointing and needless to say expensive.
A scalding hot day in the middle of a pandemic; this was the perfect respite, we felt part of a Van Gogh painting with delicious food and attentive service. Definitely plan to return.
Perfect, just Perfect.
Fantastic overall experience!
This is the ideal place for outdoor dining during these challenging times. We were a party of 4 and everyone was extremely satisfied with the ambience, quality of the food and friendly / courteous service. Kudos to Rats!
Absolutely amazing!!! Will definitely be coming back !!
Delicious food, friendly and attentive staff. Delightful gardens and sculptures.
It was our first dinner out since March and everything was outstanding. Food was delicious and service was wonderful. The ambiance and view here can’t be beat!
The ambience is amazing. So is the service. The food is below par.
My husband and I felt very safe and comfortable in this absolutely amazing atmosphere.
My mother and I went for her birthday. The service was excellent and the location is beautiful! We had the sautéed shrimp, Griggstown Chicken and Steak Frites. The food was great and the chicken was roasted perfectly. I would definitely recommend the chicken, and the shrimp were well seasoned and tasty also. Overall we had a great dinner with beautiful scenery!
Crabcakes were delicious but quiche was dry. Service and ambience were great. Tables were comfortably spaced apart. Staff very courteous. Wine list good
Food was great, service was good, but felt out of place; the demographic is clearly meant for more affluent people.
Beautiful atmosphere. The food is always delicious! Service was outstanding. Never a disappointment when we dine at Rats!
