Chilled Cold Water Lobster tossed in a tarragon mayonnaise. Served on a toasted roll with French fries and coleslaw
Prime Rib Roast
My wife had the pork tenderloin special with a beet puree that she raved about and I had the veal parmesan that was good. My wife had spotted the bread pudding on the online menu and was a little disappointed when they didn't have any.
GREAT lunch menu and the server, Dawn, was SO attentive!!!
We always enjoy the atmosphere. The food is delicious and the server was above and beyond!! We were celebrating a 35th birthday at lunch time and we were not disappointed!
The survey says it all. Everything was excellent and could not have wished for better service. Great place
We went there with our family In late October. Service was excellent. The restaurant had the tables spaced out nicely. We ate there a few times over the summer and it was always good but this evening was one of the best experiences we had there. The eggplant was great, my son loved the Prime rib and my wife’s filet mignon was cooked perfectly extremely tender.
Atmosphere good, food decent, value good, service left a lot to be desired.
Oustanding meal, excellent service. Ate outside on the patio. We’ll be back!
Great service, clean with tables well spaced. Food was ok.
Last minute reservation through OpenTable, glad we chose it. Half portion of fish and chips was more than enough. I had my cod blackened. Yum! Husband enjoyed his Mediterranean grain bowl with salmon, and his glass of Prosecco.
My wife’s pork chop dinner was among the best she said she had ever had. My more expensive ribeye was good but not as tender as I had hoped but the flavor was excellent. The butternut squash was superb even if not very warm. Desserts were good (pies). Our server, Bridget, was exceptional as was the eagle eyed bussing staff. There was not much ambiance in the overflow sparse room in which we were seated a full 20 minutes after our Wednesday night reservation.
We had the special Sammy Sandwich, shaved prime rib with fontina cheese.
The sandwich was extremely greasy, I couldn’t eat it but I did take it home to my husband. I mentioned it to the waitress but no response.
Been here 3 times and the food was better than ever!! Worth every cent
We were visiting from out of town and it was outstanding! We got a bottle of wine, two soups, and two steaks for only $135! I’m used to the normal Philadelphia prices. Highly recommend to anyone in the area!
Old fashioned Cocktail was watered down and didnt have the coloring needed in the drink. The seasoning on the food was so bold that it overshadowed what it was on. The small portion sizes were overcompensated for by large salads and a 1/2 lb of french fries.
A phenomenal meal. Food was cooked to perfection and the service was outstanding! We can't wait to go back.
Excellent Service, along with very good food make this a great place to dine.
Great food. Awesome service. Table behind us was shouting into a cell phone on speaker. Not your fault.
I took my best friend there for her Birthday.. The waitress was so sweet. And when the food came...OMG talk about delicious!!!! She had the chicken French and I had the scallops with melted asiago....I would definitely recommend people to go check them out!
Less than impressed. The staff was not very courteous for a “nicer” restaurant I expected better customer service! I ordered a captains platter - it came with a salad which was ok. “Shrimp cocktail” which was TWO shrimp. A small lobster tail which wasn’t cooked the best and the filet was tender back lacked flavor had to ask for extra salt. I wouldn’t waste my money there again! My son wasn’t thrilled with his and the prime rib looked like a slab of fat.
Meals were good portions with fine tasting sides. Dessert was amazing. The feature was lemon-blueberry cheesecake. Delicious. Steady crowd for off season. Definitely recommend.
We were seated as soon as we arrived even though the place was very busy. Once at our table the waitress appeared quickly to point out the specials and take our drink orders. Our drinks were served quickly, our orders taken and the food was delivered rapidly. Everything was cooked perfectly and the portions were more than adequate. A very nice experience from start to finish.
Nicely Covid spaced, plexiglass between booths. Food was excellent. Service responsive and fairly fast. Hostess was charming and went to every table. Will return!
Lunch was delicious. We were seated right away, service was excellent, I had a special salad, harvest salad, so good and fresh, my friend had the chicken salad wrap and she said it was very good and fresh. We had a great time. Super clean also!
The service was good and the meal was very good, but there was a group of patrons seated near us that were rather loud and we were seated just inside the door which caused a lot of commotion near our dining area.
I dined here TWICE last week on my birthday! Had the awesome Lobster Roll for lunch, and then the yummy Ahi Tuna for dinner. My Fireball Manhattan was delicious. The fresh air wafting throughout the room from the slightly opened patio windows was comforting and reassuring, as I choose not to eat indoors at restaurants. The waitstaff is super friendly and accommodating.
The calamari is fresh and a great start to a meal at Nolan's. We both enjoyed the steak sandwich lunch special. Nolan's has never let me down for lunch or dinner. Highly recommended.
Wow!!! We were here 4 years ago for our 1st Anniversary & it was good then... this time was exceptional!!! The hostess Kelsey was amazing and seated us in a great booth. Stephanie was our server and was AMAZING!!! I can’t say enough about our experience!!! Can’t wait to come back!
Loved the patio!
Went with my husband to celebrate my birthday and everything was perfect from start to finish! Would highly recommend
Sweet date w Christopher. ❤️
This was our first visit to Nolan’s and we couldn’t have been happier. Our server was Kristin and she was amazing. Our food was delicious and came out hot! We went to celebrate our anniversary and were not rushed through our meal at all! The owner stopped by to check on our experience. Keep up the good work Nolan’s! I look forward to going back soon!
Salmon special was great; good size piece and good flavor. Only thing was the pesto rice was cold and undercooked. This is the only thing I didn’t like; Nolan’s was a great time and the way they have adapted to COVID-19 protocols should be used as a benchmark for other places.
The three or four times we've been to Nolan's the food has been good. Unfortunately, Friday night I had to send the fish fry back because the cod was so rubbery. (Not sure why they use cod and not haddock) My friend ordered a seafood mix and she didn't care for her fish either but didn't send it back. Guess it has to happen once in awhile. My husband had prime rib and hers had filet which they both enjoyed.
was just a nice setting for the 2 of us for my wife's retirement dinner. she's not into fanfare and outside dining, on such a nice night was great. waitress was wonderful and pleasant. took care of all our requests.
Great food, good service, wonderful atmosphere. Can't wait to come back!!
Food was wonderful, but we were disappointed that we could not see the lake. On the lake, is a bit of a stretch. Also when they say outdoors, it is really indoors with big windows open to the outdoors. There was also an open electrical electrical box, with visible wires about 6 feet from our table. Despite all of that, we will be back. The food was that good.
Wonderful safe outdoor (but sheltered) dining experience! Great food and service.
This is my wife's and mine favorite restaurant. The food is always excellent, staff very friendly and attentive.
Never had a bad meal here. Live the blackened fish and prime rib.
