It paired well with the Caymus Cabrenet. All was served by a seasoned professional server named Donna. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you Slacks. We will be back.

They allowed us to sit in a section of the restaurant we asked for - Mary Lou the server was so gracious and helpful with the specials. In fact she even brought a candle so we could sing happy birthday and the person could blow the small candle out. Wonderful food, environment, service. Great job Suzanne Fondini

                                                                This was our first time, sadly it will be our last. The food was pretty good, but not worth the cost, also my wife’s Filet Mignon was more fat than meat and our waiter was clearly not trained properly( spilled someone else’s sauce on our table while dropping off a drink that took over 15 minutes to get, then never cleaned it up)….. The place was slow on a Saturday night, never a good sign and honestly I can see why….

Comparing to a few recent visits to high end and famous brand steak houses, the filet mignon was as good as any. New England chowder is best around and service was perfect. The bottled wine selection was surprisingly loaded with some of the best cabernet sauvignon from CA (Silver Oak, Caymus, etc) and very reasonable for the vineyard and vintage compared to other restaurants.

Calamari, mussels and oysters to start. All perfect. Scallops, prime rib and short ribs for our entrees. We all commented on how perfect each dish was. Our hats off to the chef. And our server Karen was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend this spot for a great meal.
