    Excellent place for dinner. The cocktails were inventive and well-crafted and the food was prepared perfectly. The gluten free lobster rigatoni with homemade vodka sauce is wonderful for gfree eaters.

    Lobster fra diavolo was superb. Lobster is fresh and sweet and the pasta must be handmade.

    Great salmon & lamb. Appetizer was a little small for the price. Pretty good drink selection & outdoor bar is a nice touch. Overall a good place to grab some food, but a bit pricey.

    Come sit on the patio and have some oysters or at night sit by the fire and enjoy the atmosphere which will transport you to Vermont, Rockport, Newburyport. or a farm in Maine or Upstate New York.

    It's almost too much in summer to deal with the crowds. On a blustery Sunday afternoon in March at the bar with the fire roaring...perfect. Get some oysters and settle in.

    Lobster risotto was tasty and had some very generous chunks of lobster in it. Oysters are good and fairly priced. Sitting by a fireplace on a chilly september night was priceless.
