Great, Great, Great.

“The food and service is amazing. Prices are fair and you get a lot of food. The cuisine is Portuguese that is true to its heritage. Try the seafood or their signature steak on the stone. Take a look at the wine collection… crazy choices. I would truly recommend this location. It is kid friendly and their staff is exceptional.”


Great Portuguese Food

“If you like Portuguese cuisine, this is the place to be! The salmon is to die for. Also, as an appetizer, we had shrimp in garlic - very good as well. The sangria was good. A little too sweet, but the bartender fixed it. The bar area might get loud, but there is a nice quiet area in the second room.”

Great Food and Service

“Had dinner at Lagar with friends. Found it to be a great and enjoyable experience. The food was good. The Sangria was on point. Everyone in our party of 10 was content with their dinner. The service was very good. The owner came over to our table for some small talk and complimented us with after dinner drinks and coffee!”

“Great Food, Generous Portions, And Outstanding Service”

“Delicious Portuguese dishes cooked perfectly and combined with plenty of sides…Clams Casino – so delicate that I was tempted to order more…Sirloin steak with ham and fried egg in a port sauce – so filling it lasted two more meals… All the sauces were fresh and tasty, but not over spiced...We ordered a bottle (of wine) at $18 and… it was wonderful.”
