    Server was exceptionally kind to not rush us. Wanted to leave her little extra tip and we didn’t like that the tip was already figured in and we didn’t know how to change it. (Group of 4)

    We hadn’t been to The Happ Inn in many years and remember it being quite good. We had a reservation and was seated promptly. It was full and very loud. We had to yell to hear people at our table and to talk to our waiter. Within 1 minute of sitting down our waiter asks us what we want to drink. We hadn’t had a chance to pull in our chairs let alone look at the menu. 2 minutes later he bruskly takes our drink order and wants to take our food order. We ask him to give us a couple more minutes. We order and our food comes out in a reasonable amount of time. The frites were stale and cold. We sent those back. The skirt steak was dry and flavorless. It had no seasoning. The shrimp was cooked fine, but also had no seasoning. The vegetables that were supposed to be roasted were barely done. The cauliflower rice seemed to be homemade and actually had good texture. It too was cool and unseasoned. 2 of the other diners with us enjoyed their whitefish which looked to be cooked well. Plates were removed promptly. It did seem like the waiter was in a big rush to turn our table over the whole time. Another note, ever time the busboy came by I got a huge whiff of weed. I’m super disappointed. I was looking forward to a nice meal and this place was pretty awful.

    This my favorite place for a quiet dining experience. The food is ALWAY good and the service is at the same quality as the food. We now have manager Eric greeting us by name which I feel is nice is a new twist and appreciated. Eric always takes the time to stop by at the table to say hello.

    Lovely lunch with my daughter and infant son. Staff was very helpful seating us in a corner with the baby. Loved the lunch trio of one slider, choice of salad and soup. Great value at $14.95. The corn chowder was delicious! Service was wonderful, not rushed. We will be back.

    There weren’t that many people there but our service was very slow. Sat for 10-15 minutes before anyone took our drink order. Gin and Tonic was weak. Won’t order that again; however our food was delicious as usual.

    We dined here on New Year's Eve. The service was excellent and the waitress kept coming around and checking on us to ask if we needed anything. Carlos, the owner was circulating and was friendly to stop and chat. We each had different entrees and everyone (4 of us) was happy with their food.

    There were 3 of us for lunch. The turkey burger with sweet potato fries was excellent. The Niçoise salad was very tasty and the fish sandwich for our vegetarian friend was perfect. We ordered a bottle of oyster Bay wine to top of the meal. Everything was perfect.

    Cocktails at the bar were generous and very good. Duck was great as was salmon. Steak frites with skirt steak is an interesting choice. We did not have dessert as the kitchen closed at 8 pm and we were the last customers.
