On the last day restaurants in our area were open, my wife and I went out to celebrate her birthday. The service at Longfellow's was outstanding and the steak dishes fixed to perfection. I am glad we went.

We have eaten at Longfellow's several times this year (201 9 _ 2020) because the food choices are great and the food is prepared well. We celebrated
our 60th anniversary there with family and also, my husband's birthday and my recent birthday. Staff are helpful and suggest alternatives to parts of the menu.

We have eaten out quite a bit. So we know what's good....or not. We enjoyed our dinner at Longfellow's as much as any meal we've ever had. My wife and I both ordered their prime rib, which was plentiful, tender and tasty. You didn't need a knife. The veggies that accompanied it were equally delicious. And the Clam chowder I ordered was the absolute best I've ever had. It had a scoop of mashed potatoes in its' center, with a helping of fried clams topping the potatoes. Words can't explain the taste. Our waitress was excellent, efficient, accommodating and wore a beautiful smile throughout. (I believe her name was Jessica). I might add, my wife was equally as pleased as I was with the meal and ambiance. The price was commensurate with the quality of food and service.

It was a bummer to be wedged in the cellar. But the food was top class and we can't wait to go back, just hopefully in a different seat!

Our friend's birthday was coming up and we wanted to go someplace special. I made reservations through open table and everything I requested was in place when we got there. They seated us by the fireplace as I requested and made sure there was a birthday surprise. Longfellows is a great place - the food is wonderful and there is a variety of choices. There is a 3- course special that is very inexpensive and other specials to choose from. The service is attentive.

My family and I have been wanting to try this restaurant forever and we were not disappointed. We sat in front of one of the fires and it was so cozy. The service was great and the food was amazing.

They were busy; it was a Saturday night. That said, coat check service was non-existent. We couldn't get anyone to say more than "we'll be over there to help you in a minute," but they weren't. Preparation of food was also very slow. We waited a long time after ordering. Food was generally good once it arrived. Sort of plain, but good. Waitress was thoughtful and cheerful and efficient, which helped us overlook the slowness issue. I would go again -- the ambiance is great -- but just realize that it will take a while.

I can not believe I have not been to Longfellows before. We stayed at the Inn and had dinner there. The food was delicious and every person we came in contact with was wonderful!! I can not say enough what a wonderful weekend we had there.

We entered the restaurant with a reservation only to be told by a very snarky hostess or woman at the front desk that "we would have to wait" when we asked how long the wait would be? She said, "as long as it takes to clear some tables. You can go up to the bar." In a very dismissive way. So... we go up to the bar passing 4 open "clear" tables only to wait in a long line. After about 15 minutes waiting for a drink we were called for our table that was one of the open tables we had passed. It was very noisy but fine for us. We enjoyed our meal but felt the chicken parm was extremely garlicky, salad was very basic, wings were borderline raw, we didn't eat them all, server forgot our soup. Lobster and filet was good but nothing special really. Our server Todd was working so hard and hustling many tables at once along with helping with drinks, and taking care of the fireplace. He was really busy but still a great waiter. I'm honestly, not one to complain in a review. Unfortunately, I felt like the whole night got off to a poor start from the time we walked in the door and it was so uncalled for and it really shocked me. A greeter should be politely greeting guests, we had the opposite experience.

We went to celebrate my 30th birthday.. we had a party of 10 and the waitress handled it all amazing. She was attentive and quick. She was extremely friendly. The food was amazing as always. We were sat on the lower level in the corner and it was perfect. There was a wedding that night but you would never had known with how well the staff was handling everything.

Why would you give an odd number of bread to table of two? You should do two or three per person. Tom was very nice and helpful however he did not read the specials to us. Overall great dining experience and We will be return.

Four of the five meals were spot on, but the special filet mignon stir fry was ordered medium and arrived at the table well done and cold. Waitress never stopped back by to check if everything was okay. Meal was very flavorful but expected it to be delivered as ordered and hot.

Certain rooms at Longfellows have smoke in them when the fireplace is burning. It seems there should be some way to vent the fireplace and chimney properly so the smoke goes up instead of into the rooms.
