Good food and service. Nothing ‘amazing’ but good value, portions and options. Sat on enclosed patio and was a little chilly.

Consistently very good. We had lamb and prime rib, both excellent! Other than paying $4 extra for a pretty average ceaser salad we think the meals are worth the price.

It was our first time dining at Nolan’s and our experience was exceptional! From making the reservation, to the service, the food, and overall atmosphere was phenomenal! We were on a mini staycation for some much needed Adult time and R&R and Nolan’s helped with that! Thanks for the great experience and we will be back!!!

The Calamari appetizer was delicious. The fried fish and chips also was very good. The broiled fish and chips was very salty. Even with a bunch of tartar sauce it was difficult to eat. The service was top notch. Very healthy portion sizes.

The food was great. However, we felt rushed. We want to go out and have a relaxing meal but it seemed like they wanted us to eat as quickly as possible. This overshadowed the excellent food. The pork chop was outstanding.

The restaurant is close to a busy street, but even at lunchtime, eating outside on the deck area was very pleasant. The Fish Fry cod was fabulous!

Sat in a booth on the porch and felt every movement from the people on the other booth behind us. It was annoying to me. Everything else was fantastic.

We had a booth on the new enclosed and spacious patio room. Absolutely lovely decor. The ceiling chandeliers were made of strings of wine corks!
I had the filet minon with scallops, and my partner had the pork chop. A generous portion of cherry cheesecake to share for my birthday topped the meal off nicely. Everything was delicious! My favorite place for years. We will be back this summer!

The bacon wrapped scallop appetizer was very tasty. My husband's prime rib was delicious. The filet on my caesar salad was only okay; not very tender even at medium rare and didn't have a lot of flavor. The salad was quite good, only I asked for no croutons and they put them on. Overall, a nice experience.

It was a pleasure to eat at at fine restaurant with exceptional service and excellent food.
I was having lunch for the first time in many months due to the pandemic with an old friend and we had a wonderful time catching up without being rushed (which I do not like). I am looking forward to going back to Nolans in the near future.
