Where Has This Place Been Hiding

Being St. Patrick's Day, I was looking for a place to pick up some corned beef and cabbage dinners for take out and was directed to come here. The dinners were amazing with huge portions. Enough food in two dinners to feed three people. The "Irish" brownie was rich and delicious made with Bailey's... read more

Went for dinner, and to be honest, I've never noticed this place before! Expansive menu & friendly staff! Both of our entrees were excellent (chicken souvlaki & hot wings) and brought to us in a timely manner. Definitely keeping them in mind in the future!

Let me just tell you. John and his wife Sandy really put together a good meal here. Their son Marc really takes care of you at your table. The pizza is AWESOME and after my personal pizza I had a wicked good roast beef grinder on fresh Italian bread from the Bronx and omg.what a dinner. Great place. Good people.

Great breakfasts and the lunches are pretty good too. Anyone who says Chips has the best pancakes in CT hasn't been to John's. Usually packed for breakfast, so get there early. Haven't had dinner there yet, but I will soon.

John ( owner ) refuses to give me his pancake recipe, they are awesome. I love the banana nut or just the plain. If you try the hash brown omelette you won't be sorry. We come here for any meal. The ingredient s are all fresh and a higher quality than any other diners in the area. His bacon is... More

We recently moved to Monroe and were told this was the best breakfast in town. All four people in our party enjoyed their food. They have some interesting pancake choices - I had one with bacon and sausage inside.

I used to go here a lot but the owner can be crabby and yell and his help which bothers me, The food is good and if he finally stopped yelling it would be a wonderful place to go

I've been going for years because the food is good but the past few times the owners son has been the waiter and he is not so good. If you go, try to get someone else to wait on you. Wraps and fries are yummy!

I had a breakfast reunion with 3 of my former teaching colleagues at the Rustic Grille. The menu is so large, get there early, to have enough time to read it. I have driven by this place many times and never knew it was there. It's diagonally across the street from Robertos Restaurant. I had Eggs over easy with sausage... More
