Our first visit was very pleasant. We ordered the fish and chips and my husband and I were quite pleased with the portion size and taste. The atmosphere seemed quite casual and we think we would like to try this restaurant again sometime.

The atmosphere is casual yet exciting. Plenty of space. Great design and artifacts. Todd is consistently good. Servers are friendly yet professional. Big portions. Small prices. Great beers.

Saw the reviews and decided to give this Place a try. Great service and food. I had the battered fish and it was very tasty. Sat on the deck overlooks a brook, perfect atmosphere!

Ordered a burger well done, got it charred to death. Suffering pretty severe jetlag I was zombiefied beyond caring to do something about it at the time. Staff was very friendly and a great atmosphere. Would be willing to give it one more shot.

Great food and service and great view onto the patio. Priced right too. Located near Franklin Park Conservatory which is also handy.

No words except the fish is extraordinary! Worth the trip. This one seems to be the best I've been too. Huge fish filets and cooked to perfection. Great wait staff too! Mussels were also excellent.
