Good place for family dining

The Hearth is an old time family restaurant with simple food, well prepared and served hot! If you are looking for upscale, fancy food this is not your place, however lot of food with a diverse menu and very reasonable prices then stop by and enjoy the quite dining with excellent service.

Wonderful place for an American meal. The entire staff is gracious and never had a bad meal here. The filet mignon is excellent, soup is very good along with the veggies. Never had desert as we were too full.

We have been coming to the Hearth since 1973 and the decor has not really changed. But what also has not changed is the excellence and quality of their food. Never got a bad meal and the beef especially is excellent.

To start, the interior is one of the shabbiest and most depressing I have seen. It was accented by the faint smell of mothballs and mildew in the air. My water glass had a pink lipstick print on it, and the (incredibly cheap cafeteria style) silverware looked sketchy too.The soup (cream of broccoli, one of my favorites) had absolutely no... More

Consistently good food and good drinks at a fair price. Been in business for almost five decades and for good reason.

We took an out of town guest to the Hearth in Brookfield, CT recently. We'd been there on many occasions and have found it to be very reliable dining every time we ate there. This meal was no exception. Staff was friendly and professional, the menu offered a variety of choices and the prices were exceptional for the quality of... More

Been a customer forever. Always consistently good. Not a fancy place, though cozy. Service is just fine, food is just good, though selections are limited, except for steaks. Steaks are way above average.

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.
