Yes, a lot of people call the Hearth, "God's Waiting Room" because, frankly, the majority of its customers are elderly and very elderly. (My Wife and I are exceptions, thank you). But don't let that scare you off. Yes, the decor is reminiscent of a long-ago era and the only change that we've noticed in years is the replacement of... More

The Sunday night we visited the clientele was definitely of the older set. By contrast the wait staff was quite young as if the grandkids were waiting on their grandparents. The restaurant feels like the sort of place you would find in a rural area, quiet with comfortable warm/woody decor, nothing fancy; a step above a diner. Our meal tasted... More

My wife and I have been going here for years. We enjoy the early bird specials. Food is plain and simple just as we like it.

December 7th, 2013 - needed a nice place for a family celebration of our mother's 90th birthday. There were 18 of us, no children. The room was beautifully decorated for the holidays, the tables placed in a U-shape which facilitated conversation. The service was impeccable and the food fantastic. Soup AND salad, entree choice of sliced steak, baked scrod, or... More

I've been eating at the Hearth for 50 years now, it's just a comfortable place to go. We used to kid that only old folks would eat there but I'm in that group now and enjoyed my lunch.

I went here with a group of 8. Half were over the age of 80. With that consideration, it was a good choice. The restaurant is quiet, which is so hard to find these days. The prices were reasonable and the service efficient and kindly. The food is about 2 notches up from hospital food. As in iceberg lettuce salad,... More

Went there with a bunch of people my husband use to work with years ago. I read the reviews here, and was concerned. I'm glad to say, I was pleasantly surprised. The food was good, service was pretty good considering the size of our group. I had the chopped steak. Although I ordered it Medium/Rare it arrived more Medium/Well. But... More

My husband, grandson and I went to the Hearth for dinner recently. We have always loved the Hearth and have gone many times and enjoyed ourselves. I told the waitress my grandson would have broiled bay scallops and rice. He was served cut up sea scallops and a baked potato. I didn't complain then as I didn't want to ruin... More

...this restaurant. When we walked in, we found a place that was really dark, dank and uninviting. The furniture was old, the decor was awful and in very, very bad taste (think of a penny sale at Michael's). But the "chef" was out front and talking it up with people, I decided to brave it out. I ordered Chicken with... More
