Stopped by this little place for dinner. The service was great. Ordered the coconut shrimp as an appetizer. It was the best. Fresh and great coconut taste. The fried white fish was excellent, cooked perfectly, lightly browned and moist inside. My companion had the seafood...More

Yes, it's a sports bar and grill in a shopping center, however, we have visited and eaten dinner there numerous times and this is consistently good, tasty and fresh food. It is an unusual combination for sure. There's a big u shaped sports bar with...More

My wife and I stopped at the "Sand Trap" for lunch while in the area. She had a BLT that was more like a club sandwich - HUGE! I had soup & sandwich that was also excellent. Definitely worth the stop.

I love, love, love the Thai food here!!! The owners are delightful and run an extremely clean place. It's eclectic, but they love Boston- hence the decor. They serve mainstream pub food, but I've never had it. My choice is always the wonderful Thai! My...More
