Great food in a crowded venue

The reason I give Heyday four stars instead of five is it is just so darn small for all the bodies they cram in. Certainly can't fault the food, which is excellent. Last time I was there with a friend for a holiday lunch I had a roasted winter squash salad that was excellent. I just wish the... read more

The service is excellent. They pay attention on everything. The lobster's soup is incredible and the place is cozy. Wine was good too.

Great food. Nice wine and beer selection. Friendly service. Only downside is that it is small so the wait may be too long.

Best potato salad around, but that's just the side dish. Great Turkey, bacon, avocado wrap, killer salads, Heyday Salad and Butternut squash salad and excellent pizza. Friendly, prompt service.

The Heyday Café is a popular local restaurant. Reservations recommended. Dinner was very good although the shrimp was below expectations. Wine was good and the bartender (Dean?) was very professional and his service was excellent even though the restaurant was very busy. Prices reasonable. We would recommend it.

Happen to start raining when we went there. Environment is very cozy. Healthy choices of food and they have wide selection of wines. I recommend their specialty thin-crust pizza. Service is great.

I would like to say that travelers should not eat here so that those who live here could always get a seat for lunch or dinner. So to be fair I really must say that this is one of our most favorite restaurants in town.
