I had the regular hot wings as an appetizer and they were pretty darn good however the burger that I had which was a macaroni and cheese covered Burger was just okay. I have heard good things about their burgers but I just wasn't impressed. Maybe it was an off night?

Food was ok. The pretzels with crab are excellent, would go back again just to have multiple orders of them. Prices are fair. The sandwiches could be filled a little more.

They took us in at the reservations time. That’s where the positive ends. I ordered the special. It was prime rib. I have never in my life seen a prime rib with soooo much fat on it. It was terrible. The special advertised a 12oz prime rib. With the fat cut off it couldn’t of been more then 5oz. I have to be honest. We went there because friends from N.C. came up and wanted to go there. I avoid the alburtis tavern at all cost. I have never gone there and received a good meal. EVER. If your thinking of going there. Don’t. Go to the hometown diner it’s much better. And that’s sad.

Went with a party of six. All meals were good except for the stuffed flounder which spent way too much time in the broiler. I was shocked that they brought this dish to me in that burnt condition. Margarita also tasted weird.

Our waitress never told us the specials-just came over and asked for a drink order. We waited a long time to get our drinks and she never came to check on us while we waited. Then after they came out and we waited for our food she nvr came back to check to see if we wanted more drinks-we had to call her over.
We also waited a long time to get our food and the appetizer came out 1 minute before our meals.

Food was good and reasonably priced.
Its a shame, I really do like it here -the menu is great and its a cool place but it seems there is always a huge party in the back that impacts other diners waiting for their food.

Although our server was gracious and very skilled it was hard for her to keep explaining the 50 Minute wait for our order of two cheesesteaks w potato chips. She was gracious enough to offer complimentary desert with was a nice gesture. The food, when it finally arrived was quite good. Portions are large and a good value.

Excellent service. Every item came out timely in sequence. Food done just right. My flounder stuffed with crab was outstanding. The lobster bisque was superb. The view was nice outdoors with the sun setting and trains going by.

Haven’t been here in years. Decided to try for a mini family reunion. Loved using Open Table for reservations. The host was not friendly nor welcoming. We had a larger party and arrived in multiple cars. Our car was first. The entrance was crowded. They would not seat us until our entire party arrived. Normally I understand that, but with one of us over 75 and another over 85, she should have made an exception. The menu was huge and ranged from appetizers to sandwiches to entrees. The food quality varied by entree. The crab stuffed pretzel was tasty. The veal Oscar was good, but the asparagus was burned. The Caesar salad was fresh and tasty. Our server was very good. She was efficient and personable. It’s a cute tavern with multiple rooms. they have outdoor seating. It was very busy on a weekend night, so for many the good outweighs the not so good.

Had the car show pot roast and it was excellent. I kept saying I couldn’t eat anymore, but kept going back and nibbling at it until it was all gone. The veggies were cooked just right, with a little crunch left, not soggy and over cooked. The only suggestion I would make is to cut the beef into bite size portions as it was on a bed of mashed potatoes making it kind of awkward to cut the beef up. Two thumbs up on my meal.

From the moment we walked in the door until we left, we could not have asked for a better experience! The waiter (Dan) was wonderful, the food was delicious, the prices were average, and the service was outstanding...couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

Visit this place often and the amount of food you get is substantial and good. My one complaint is they don't offer classic drinks, mostly fru fru martinis. I like a good Cosmo, but their's is not very good.

It’s quaint the menu is straight bar food or diners drive ins and dives. That is not a bad thing but if you don’t want fried, cheese,bacon or beef you should choose elsewhere

Prices are reasonable service is pleasant and it’s local it’s just not what we wanted

Food was good. Service went from good to back throughout our time there. Appetizers took forever and came out with the food. Server gave us our bill, took our credit card and charged our card for someone else's bill. Very busy. Love that they use open table for reservations.
