    Service was friendly but slow. Lighting was too dim in our section. I had the fish and chips... Not a dish I'd recommend to anyone else eating here.

    Half off oysters ($1.50) from 4-6 and 9-10 daily! Oysters are always fresh and there's a variety to choose from. You must try the escargot!! Cheesy buttery garlicky deliciousness on toasted bread.

    At this restored 1885 restaurant, you'll find Prohibition-era cocktails, beef Wellington, and Yankee pot roast, as well as more modern offerings like meatball sliders. Read more

    A cast-iron pot of meaty Boston baked beans ($5.25) arrives. Someone is serious about this humble dish, which isn't cloying or overrun with molasses, and is plenty soupy and smoky. Read more

    The hostesses aren't too friendly or accommodating, but the wait and bartending staff are great. The quality of the food makes up for the lukewarm reception at the door, though... I keep coming back.
