Met my daughter and her boyfriend last night for dinner along with my husband. The meal couldn't have gone better. The three of them ordered the Elk stew for an appetizer and it arrived hot and full. WOW. It smelled fantastic and they LOVED it!...More

The food is excellent, the service is outstanding and the cocktails are the best. Great ambiance especially if you can get a table in the front window and people watch. By far our favorite and best restaurant in downtown Bangor.

One of my favorites! A classy atmosphere without feeling stuffy, excellent food and cocktails, good service. Menu changes slightly seasonally or a couple times a year, and there's always a great selection. Can't wait to return!

Great staff, great food, romantic dinner! The crostini appetizer is amazing! Husband had a filet with shrimp and cheese, and I had the Goodfellas pizza. Both were wonderful! The blood orange martini was delicious too.

Remarkably slow and impersonal service at the bar. Mediocre wine selection. Unimaginative menu offerings.
