This small restaurant was something I passed by on a regular basis. So glad I finally gave it a try. The food was amazing! Appetizers were generous - loved the tuna tartar and the fig. Lobster ravioli was amazing. Disappointed they don't serve the lava cake but the cinnabon with gelato was a great substitute. Highly recommend- we will be back!!!

Good food with varied selections to suit everyone. Service was slow and it wasn’t crowded at all. It should never take 20 minutes to fulfill a drink order and get it to the table. Otherwise a good experience and I will return for sure.

We had the prix fixe meal and it was delicious. Best Brussel sprouts we have had in a long time. Burger and fish and chops were very good and dessert was delicious. Also a very good craft beer list with a lot of local CT beers and a couple of well known from other areas.

Our wait staff disappeared I had to keep going up to the bar to close out my tab, get another drink etc. My steak was good, but DEFINITELY NOT $30 a plate good. Not a very good experience here. Over priced and lousy service. I’m new to the neighborhood and I won’t be returning

We drive by all the time and thought we'd check it out.
The Good - service (very friendly), beer selection & food (recommend the wings).
The Not so Good - Pretty pricey for a strip mall type joint. $30 for a NY Strip was a bit much. Fish & chips for $20?

Other than spending $200 before tip for a family of four (we had apps & beers, no dessert) it was good.

Our waitress was great and all the food on the other tables looked delicious. But when our food arrived it was cold and seemed like the kitchen was closing and they were just done for the day.

We have been here a few times and have been pleased with the food and the service. Eclectic menu with some delicious options. Loved the vegetable risotto and the fettuccine bolognese. The family enjoyed the burgers and the vegan option. Good choice!

I went for the music and the Dirt Road Pickers were excellent. I liked the vibe of the place. The food was fine. I had burgers. Nothing noteworthy. Beer selection was very good. Bill was a bit pricier than I would have expected for burgers, even with the big bar tab we ran up.

We dined on a Sunday evening. They were fairly busy and very gracious but understaffed. The experience was a little disappointing but would give them another shot, as food was generally good and had a nice vibe.

Thank you for leaving a review. Unfortunately that was a day when some of our staff members couldn't make it to work and we were just missing on the extra hands. We are happy you liked the food and the atmosphere and we hope we will win the extra stars on your next visit. Regards

Had dinner on a Friday evening (happened to be trivia night). Our reservations were for 7PM and were honored in a timely fashion. We ordered drinks and wine all of which were very good. Our appetizers were unique and delicious. Our entrees (fettuccine bolognese and the salmon) were excellent. We did enjoy our desserts and also joining in the trivia contest which started at 8PM. We will go back again.

Absolutely a wonderful experience. I was one my first date and not only was the ambience perfect but it wasn’t too busy, not too much noise where we couldn’t hear each other. The food and drinks were spot on, our waitress was very on top of things making sure we had what we needed. Prices aren’t advertised online and I wasn’t expecting the good to be a little on the higher end. But for how the night went overall it was worth every dollar!

Like the menu and food very much. Third time there and service remains off. Pleasant staff but lacking attentiveness. The band was very good but too loud, hard to enjoy dinner conversation. Would be better if sound was turned down a bit or started playing later. We will give it another try.

Was there for Saturday dinner. Only 2 other tables were occupied plus some bar seats. Food was tasty and fresh. Menu had variety of choices including 3 course "tasting menu" for $25. Crab cake appetizer very good, fish and chips good (could have used cole slaw), ahi tuna entree excellent with nice veggie accompaniments. Chocolate cake dessert excellent. Great service, pleasant ambiance.
