We went there unintentionally and found a great place. We were impressed with the decor which emulated their small town warmth that matched the staffs attitude. Friendly and fun. While eating their original tasty dishes we engaged another couple sitting next to us, The four of us ended up laughing and carrying on while enjoying a lovely meal. Just a... More

Don't come in unless you're hungry. A great diversified menu with lots of choice and all of the orders are "heaping". So much so, that everyone, it seems, get a doggy bag when leaving. The place is clean, service courteous and atmosphere terrific. Prices are reasonable considering the ambiance and menu.

The staff were really friendly, it was a really nice casual family diner. Very relaxing. The vegetables were fresh not frozen and the food came quickly. The restaurant was spacious so you didn't feel restricted. It was full of families, couples, friends but not a place for romance!!

We have eaten at 50's many times over the past couple of years. When we visit my parents in Cambridge, we always dine at 50's as my mom is unable to cooks meals anymore. We were never dissatisfied, great food and great value! Keep it up!

There is always a line up out the door on weekends! This is usually a good indication that they must be doing something right! We've never been disappointed!

Good food, lots of it and pretty good prices. I was there on Sat. for prime rib dinner. Reasonable price, great salads, I was a little surprised that they charged a dollar extra for a baked potatoe, especially with prime rib. It was good food, and the potatoe was excellent, I had enough left for a full supper next day,... More

I went for breakfast Sunday morning and was not disappointed. I had a breakfast burrito and home fries that was delicious. My friends had bacon and eggs, pancakes and french toast. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The waitress made frequent trips to the table with coffee which was great. This was our 2nd time eating here and we would... More

Okay breakfast but pricey dinner (UNremarkable). Unfortunately they rely solely on quantity as opposed to quality.

It is always a real pleasure to eat at this restaurant when you are served by Sandy. She makes dining a real pleasure. She is attentive, friendly and very professional.
