On our first visit, my friend ordered the steak tips (which were very good) and I had a mandarin Asian-inspired salad, which I thought was delicious as well. The Living Room's specialties are seafood dishes—watch for the great deals for lobster dinners.
Though it's sometimes difficult to get a table during tourist season, this restaurant’s staff is always polite and professional. Even when they are very crowded, they manage to accommodate everyone. The large outdoor veranda is a great place to dine alfresco on a nice spring or summer day and people-watch.
Inside, there is a large lounge/bar area that is set up, well, like a living room. There are large sofas, a fireplace, throw pillows, warm lighting, and even a plasma-screen TV. It's a great place to go and watch your favorite sports team and still feel like you're in an environment like home. They also make awesome martinis here, so it's definitely worth going beyond your own living room to The Living Room
Prices here are reasonable, with the steak tips topping out at about $30. The average price of an entrée is about $15 to $20, with the specials on the more expensive side.
