Very nice restaurant. The food was food and the waitress was kind and attentive as well. You get a decent amount of food for the price and the food is tasty!


Stopped at Cal's while on business in Western Mass. Nice beer selection; varied menu. Opted for the pizza, which was more than enough for one person. It was good, and it did the job. Good service, but the place was loud

Great experience! We didn't have a reservation, but we were able to sit down immediately. Glad we arrived when we did because a massive crowd arrived about 5mins after us. We took advantage of the four course meal for $23.99. Our food was hot and delicious. My caramel apple martini was absolute perfection. Price was a little high (we spent $75 for two people), but we had a great time.

During our visit, we had an appetizer, entrees, and drinks. The calamari appetizer tasted fine but was very oily as if it was fried in oil that wasn't hot enough. We ordered the Mediterranean seafood pasta as an entree. Unfortunately, one of the clams was undercooked. When we let the waiter know, they took the clam and later came back with a new one that was supposedly cooked. Unfortunately once again, some of the mussels in the dish were also undercooked and we're also barely cleaned correctly since some that we did eat, crunched with sand. Needless to say, the dish was mostly inedible since it was undercooked. The martini and long island ice tea that we ordered were both perfect.To sum up our experience, the food was not a positive experience at all. The drinks were great and so was the service.This place was highly recommended to me which is the reason for our visit. However, I won't be going back.

Our hotel recommended Cal's to us and what a great recommendation it was. The host was able to accommodate our family of 5 without a reservation, I'm sure had we been later in the dinner service this would have been even more difficult because they were quite busy. The service was wonderful, our server kept drinks full, appetizers, salads, and main course well timed. Plates were quickly cleared as we finished. Honestly, we were never wanting for something more. Five different dishes and all 5 people were happy. That says it all. And even though we had wanted dessert, everyone was too full for any more food.Thank you for a great meal to finish our busy travel day!

This was my first and last time here. The service was slow. The outdoor seating is near the road making it hard to hear the people across from you. Was not impressed with the drink selection and they don't have any frozen drinks. The food was unimpressive for the money. I ordered the fried seafood platter and the fish fry had no flavor, seasoned fries were not seasoned and the coleslaw was ok. The best part of the meal was rolls and butter.

Normally great service and great food. Last night was TERRIBLE service and mediocre food. If that was my 1st experience there, I would tell everyone to Never go there!

Our family planned a small gathering of about 20 people, following a memorial service. We arrived at the planned time and were directed to a small cozy room near the front of the restaurant. They set up our table comfortably so that we could visit with others and move around easily. We were aware of staff shortages everywhere and came in with patience. Not to worry. We had basically one server who was well trained and definitely experienced. He took care of drinks, served our salads and lunches with ease. Food was delicious, and we had 7 entrees to choose from. Something for everyone. Our server was informed of one food allergy guest and he took great care to ensure she was served appropriately.. The restaurant was actually very busy that afternoon and it did not affect our service. Many thanks to the staff, especially Clever, who took such great care in serving us.

Visited on a busy Saturday with no reservations. Found two spots at the bar. Place was busy. Seems to be popular with locals, which is always a good sign. We sampled a few things. Red Fish entree was awesome as was the Sesame Crusted Tuna app. The Garlic Gorgonzola bread was good, but nothing you may not find elsewhere. Cocktail list has really good choices and draft beer list is good mix of craft and macro brands. Service was exceptional. Bar staff attentive and on-point. Highly recommend.

I would give this restaurant a 11 on a 0-10 scale! It was truly that good! I find the name a bit misleading, as I don’t think it represents the quality of the food services in this place. It is truly exquisite! Service was fabulous, nice ambience, the food amazing.I had a pasta with seafood dish. Fresh scallops, shrimp, blackened fish, mussels and clams, over pasta, with a wonderful brothy sauce of some kind (see my photo) .. I also had a toasted bread appetizer with Gorgonzola.. to die for! My partner had a swordfish dish, that was fantastic. Salsas were nice, warm rolls services with dinner.I was in the restaurant business for 20 years, and this meal was in the top five I have ever had! I travel all over on business and dine at some of the finest restaurants. This one was better than them!It is what I would consider a casual elegance, a casual fine dining… you can come in with shorts and sandals, street dress, or however you feel comfortable..The service was also fabulous, from host to server. Wish I could share her name with you, I do not have it.I give this place an 11, on a 1-10 scale. I visit Springfield twice a year. I’ll never eat someplace else!Eat at the restaurant! You won’t be disappointed!

So clam chowder was ok probably the best thing we had food wise. Gorganzola bred was like a frozen breadstick with a small amount of Gorganzola added to it. And the pizza was bland, dry and really just not what I was expecting at all. Bartender was great and poured a fantastic martini but don't go for the food!!

Very average service. Heard great things about the pizza and was very disappointed. Ended up leaving and getting some food somewhere else. Pizza was extremely underwhelming, watery and soggy. Fried mozz app was ok. Don't see the hype about this place.

Might be some of the worst pizza I have ever had. Very greasy and watery and the crust tasted stale. The outdoor seating is not worth it since it is next to a busy highway. Very unimpressed with this place... I have no idea how this place has gotten so many good ratings. The Service was subpar...
