Park
“Wonderful, peaceful day on the water. This is a large lake that also has a dog friendly walking trail around the whole lake..so if you don't like dogs you may want to get elsewhere. Plenty of inlets along the way to pull your kayak over and take a break. We had a great day but if I had to choose I would choose Hopkinton State park, just because it is larger and there are islands in the middle of the lake to explore.”

“Stellar menu, great service, good music, great building. The food is excellent, a bit unusual, among the best in the MetroWest - more like Cambridge or Boston chic restaurant fare. Innovative drinks too.”

“This was a special experience all around. The back story is fun. We felt very welcomed and appreciated that the staff is genuinely enthusiastic about what they're doing. The food was excellent. I had a grilled pork chop and my husband had salmon. Both dishes were perfectly prepared and very flavorful. The martini menu was equally impressive. It was one of the best experiences we've had in the greater Boston area.”
