We were in town for the Annual Remembrance Day Parade. We had reservations for Saturday evening. I ordered the crab cakes. They were excellent. Our waitress (Lauren) was very attentive, friendly and funny. See you in July Laruen (Barb)!

Food was delious and the hot buttered rum and hot cider with applejack were just what we needed on a chilly night. It was a great atmosphere and we really enjoyed it.

The french onion soup at this restaurant is amazing. My brother raves about it. This time it contained bits of beef also. Our meal, itself, arrived cold and the waitress failed to check back. The previous times all was good so perhaps an off day.
