A local recommended Lamb's Grill to us. We ended up going about an hour before closing so there were maybe only 4 couples in the restaurant. When we first walked in we were hesitant because it is a much older restaurant. Although we were coming...More

We ordered omelette, pancakes and eggs Benedict. The food was good, te waiter was all the time gentle and attentive. The ambiance is very nice. Looks like a place from 1950, elegant and cozy.

It was recommended as a terrific American-style breakfast place, but, to quote one of my kids, "it really sucks." Being conscious of the fact that this is a place where people make their living cooking, serving, or cleaning up, I'd much rather point out the...More

Had the seafood pasta. The shrimp was over cooked beyond edible and there were no scallops. Service was unbearably slow. Won't give the place another try.
