|"It's a Gem for a small party!", An Eventective User from Scarborough, Maine|
|The appetizers and salads are all very very good. The truffled lobster “mac & cheese” is absolutely fantastic. The huntsman’s burger is served on a house-made blue cheese biscuit - an incredible burger. The best burger I've ever had. The salmon is cooked to perfection all the time. The service and staff are impeccable. Consistently great dining!|
