Visited today for lunch--not very crowded when we arrived at 11:30. I ordered the quiche and soup but replaced the soup with a salad. The quiche was a very generous portion and was served with a side of fresh fruit: cantaloupe, grapes, and pineapple. The desserts were fairly priced--we shared the mixed berry pie a la mode. It was very... More

Large portions of good food from an extensive menu make a visit here worth your time. Service is good. The views of the marshes & Lieutenant River are lovely.

Had been there several times over the years, but this time was surprised how it is looking rundown inside, woodwork on door to kitchen needs refinished, carpet needed to be cleaned. Service slow.

This is one of those restaurants whose quality seems to change on a monthly basis. The prices are average and the food quality varies widely depending on the dish you order. The atmosphere is OK, nothing special. Kind of like an 1980s fern bar. The ladies room needs a good cleaning and an update.

My family has been going to the Hideaway for years. We stopped by after a disaster at the Hallmark restaurant on Saturday afternoon (should have gone here first)! We have never had a bad meal here and today was no different! We ordered drinks in the bar and asked the bartender if he would mind putting the Red Sox/Yankees game... More

The atmosphere was awful. Dirty walls and torn and dirty carpeting. Needs help quickly. The food quality was poor. Not what is used to be.
