    We learned from our waitress that the $1 oyster special M-F 4-6pm is no longer active, without further explanation. This is despite being advertised on their website & the greasy menu actively circulating to guests. Standard bar menu food. Truffle short rib & butternut squash flatbreads were good. Would pass on the popcorn chicken (accompanied by unusual dipping sauce with a lot of vinegar?). The establishment had plenty of open tables Friday evening, so staff did accommodate a last minute change in number of guests.

    They should advertise themselves more as a sports bar. No matter where you are seated you are likely to be facing multiple TVs and the loud football broadcast made it hard to converse or even think. Server stopped visiting the table for a very long long after serving the main course and other tables seemed in the same boat so we were all trying to flag her down. It wasn't that busy and they didn't seem understaffed. The hosts and management were very nice upon arrival and the art on the walls was cool. Food was good.

    This place was great! It's been on my list for awhile and I think we picked the perfect night because they had free samples and giveaways because of Oktoberfest! Food was good (I got the pork belly cuban) but it did take a bit to come (Super busy). Overall great value for the price!

    This place was okay, but not great. The food was good, but very pricey. We had to find our server for drink refills. I mostly wanted a Fluffernutter, so that was my main reason for picking this place. I don’t think we will return.

    Had a nice Mothers Day Brunch. The food was good and the waitress was excellent. Only "small" issue was that we wanted the lunch menu. We had a 2:30 reservation so we assumed it would be available as well. But they only serve brunch until 5:00 on Sunday. A little disappointed but there were decent options on the brunch menu. Otherwise, the vibe was lively, and they had the Celtics (game 7 win!) on the TV's. We will definitely be back.

    I was a long time patron of the Farragutt House so going there was very nostalgic for me. The food was delicious! We got a number of appetizers and enjoyed them. My only reservation was it feels very crowded. There were 2 of us at a table and my chair was almost up to a table behind me. It just felt crowded and it got VERY loud because everyone was talking loudly to hear each other. I would definitely go again. Great menu and lots to choose from !

    I put a note when I made our reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary. The host greeted us warmly and wished us a happy day. I requested a high top but instead we were seated at a cozy booth, the host mentioned she thought it was more romantic. How sweet! As we got settled at our table, the manager stopped by with champagne and warm wishes as well! Very kind. We enjoyed trivia and shared apps and dinner. Thank you for a fun celebration!

    Went to grab some Saturday brunch, $6 mimosas were a steal. The coffee cocktails were good too. We ordered the breakfast tacos and chicken&waffles and they were top tier! The fried fluffernutter and Big Mac sliders were amazing as well. Definitely recommend going here for brunch if you’re in the area!!!

    I am originally from the city but have been on the south shore for several years. My son just turned 17 and wanted to take him out for brunch. I extensively searched for a place that was nice, accommodating for a party of 7 and good looking menu. The initial presentation of this place checked all the boxes if so speak. We had a 2:30p rsvp and according to the website, brunch is over at 4p. Well to our surprise they ended brunch at 3p. So the we had to order from the interim menu that had like 5 options to choose from. The waitress was really sweet and very apologetic but where was the presence of management?? Did we not deserve a further explanation or some form of basic customer service? We clearly were not viewed as valued customers, especially post Covid, local business/ support is what keeps a place like this afloat. So this was our first and definitely last visit to an establishment that very well treats their patrons based on the color of their skin and not the content of their intention. Just in case it wasn’t obvious, to enjoy my sons birthday with family, food at a nice spot and some basic respect!!

    The floors were dirty and getting to the womens bathroom is a serious fall risk even with grippy shoes. The grease was old and too hot, everything that went in it was overdone and had a bitter taste. The skirt steak was over cooked, and the chimichurri was way too chunky. The chicken in the Nashville Hot was burnt and bitter (again the grease), the chicken Caesar was drowning in dressing, the BBQ tips had zero flavor and the meat was tough. Additionally, they were out of the tiramisu. The apps were an ok price, but the entrees were not worth the money at all. The wait staff was nice and every time someone visited the table, even a food runner, they removed the old dishes. I will not be revisiting.
