Excellent meal and excellent service at reasonable prices. The noise level is annoyingly loud. The ceiling and floor are absorbing none of it. It'd become my go-to restaurant if the noise level was better controlled.

first time there, we really loved the chips!! My husband had the seafood stew and really enjoyed it! I have the bacon wrapped chicken- the chicken was a little overcooked but the mashed potatoes and veggies were awesome!

There is a great variety of food offerings on the menu so something for everyone. I had the baked stuffed haddock both meals were excellent! The waitress was great...not bothering you every minute but very attentive. Atmosphere was a little blah but not overly noisy..very clean. Great value for the money!

We always have a good time at Navatos. Good beer selection. Warm chips brought to the table before you order.

Went with another couple. One had a salad w grilled chicken, I had the giro sandwich, one buffalo Mac and cheese and a steak bowl.

Everyone loved their dinner

We ate outside, sidewalk tables watching RT 1A during dinner, it was nice to eat outside during these COVID times. Our first time, the food was really good and the service was also very good. We will definitely go back!

The food was great and our server was very good but it was very loud. I’m not sure if it was something acoustically in the building or if it was just the makeup of the people choosing to dine out that night. It was our first time there so we have nothing to compare it to. I would consider going back just to see if it was as loud on a different night because the food was very good.

First time guests during pandemic. The outdoor seating is on the front porch right next to the parking lot where cars come and go. You need to walk past others who are eating to get to your table. Food is great and plentiful. The wings with Thai peanut sauce are great! Beer prices are a bit high though and are unmarked on the menu. Wear mosquito spray if you go at night.

Thankful for this local eatery that has continued to server great food (both take out and socially distanced dining in/front porch) Can't beat the $5 lobster special-they were delicious, as was everything else we ordered.

I ordered the grilled shrimp and scallops. It was very good but I do wish that the vegis were cooked more. It felt like they were warmed up with some oil. The rice was the best. My partner had the brazilian stew. It was good but needed a bit more seafood because the rice to seafood ratio was off. In retro spec the food to price ratio was really good and the food itself was good. I only wish the vegis were cooked a bit more. I would go again and try something different on the menu.

We looked forward to the homemade potato chips served instead of the usual bread- they arrived, but were stale, reheated chips. The drinks were weak & sweet🥴The stuffies and the Korean BQ were delicious👍🏼 The seafood medley was not so great containing 2 shrimps, 1 scallop, a few clams & mostly muscles . The lights were so bright for nighttime dining that it felt like an interrogation🧐 it seemed to be very busy for takeout as people kept brushing by our table as we attempted to relax. We probably won’t be returning here.
