Alexander's Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By romadaro - Washington, DC

Nothing special, but it was good. I had the broiled haddock which was seared just right, but could have used a little more seasoning, nothing that salt and pepper couldn't fix. The salad was fresh and the presentation was excellent. My only complaint is although its an Italian restaurant where pasta reigns supreme, is it too much to ask for a baked potato instead? I asked for one and was quickly told they don't serve them. If they had, this review would probably have gotten 5 stars!

La Festa Brick & Brew Pizzaria

Reviewed By Frank D - Concord, New Hampshire

First time visit. Was not crazy about the cafeteria style of waiting in line to order food and beverages. Especially when it's busy and everyone, including staff are inpatient. The pizza was good. the Garlic and Cinnamon Knots were tasty. I'd pay extra for regular sit down table service. Good if you're in a hurry and not looking to relax.

I have always known this Dunkin Donuts to be absolutely horrible, but once a year or so I decide to give them another chance because they're the.closest to me. I always immediately regret that decision when I am asked to repeat my entire order a couple times. Then I wait. And wait. Then I get the mystery cup and sandwich and play a game trying to guess what the heck I actually got. The only time my drive-thru order was ever correct was when I ordered a single donut to break a 20. It took (no exaggeration) a full 5 minutes for me to get that donut. I've worked at a Dunks, it isn't that difficult. Unless you enjoy starting your day frustrated, I'd wait for the next Dunkin donuts you go by.

I miss when AJ's had actual FLAVORED coffee, and not just syrups. But an okay solution is the "witches brew"- iced coffee mixed with chocolate milk. I just hate the syrupy coffee. If I wanted that, I'd go to dunkin's. It's nice they have some food choices now, too, in addition to the baked goods.

Mayo's Family Restaurant

Reviewed By Coquille8 - Maine

I was literally blown into this little spot by 40 MPH gusts, one last (fingers crossed) gift from the memorable 2014-2015 Maine winter.

The lunch menu is slim, as their focus is clearly on great breakfasts. However, I am so glad I stopped in. The tuna salad club was wonderful, something I have never ordered anywhere (who has this?) before, and it was just the right thing.

My sister will love this place, and a good friend promises to go for breakfast soon, which I am certain we will enjoy.

It's unassuming, reasonable and good. What's not to like?

Welcoming service and a reasonable menu choice. A concentration on local produce and flavoursome food. A fair range of craft beers, although quite expensive in my opinion. (Be prepared for uncushioned seats and benches).

Las Palmas

Reviewed By CarlGagnon - Sanford, ME

A group of us stopped by here last Saturday for some food and drink, and we were pleasantly surprised by the food quality, amount, and service. Our margaritas were tasty and with them being on sale as the Saturday special, even better. Had the burrito Mexicano as well as a few other plates, and food was fresh and plentiful. If you are in the Somersworth area, we highly recommend.

Fogarty's Restaurant

15 family members went for a birthday party and everything was way above expectations. The service was very good, friendly and courteous. All the meals came out together and were hot and delicious. The menu has a large selection of meals and sandwiches, along with apps., salads and soups. There may be a short wait because this place is very popular but it is worth it.

Christopher's Third Street Grille

Christopher W. Lund, propriétaire/chef exécutif Steak, Fish and Seafood

Reviewed By Edgetech - Rochester, New Hampshire

This was our second visit to Christophers... Food still taste great!! My only gripe is that although the prices look reasonable, I don't think the portions really are.

My wife got Sweet Potato fries as an app and they were really good. I got the Hot Sausage Soup($5) which was AWESOME. It comes in just one size though and I would have loved a larger bowl. It's loaded with sausage and herbs. Just a little spicy. Tomatoes, a layer of tortilla chips and melted cheese on top.

For our lunch, my wife got the large Fresh Salad ($6). She added shrimp ($7) and it came with just four. And she added avocado ($2). So the salad cost $15. This was a little high considering what we have gotten at other restaurants. The portion was not that great. I had the French Connection ($8) which was thinly shaved Prime Rib on garlic bread with Swiss cheese on top and served with au jus. It came with fries and a pickle. The fries were good and crispy. Although it tasted AWESOME, it looked nothing like the pictures that I have seen on their website. There was not much meat in it at although... A little disappointed...

For us to leave a restaurant and my wife to say that she is still hungry does not happen very often. With one beer, the meal cost us $50. We visited another restaurant the night before and paid $54 (that included two beers) and left stuffed!! We will go back because the food was great. But we won't be regulars...
