We took a drive to Plainfield to visit family and needed a place to eat. They suggested we go to Gus's Pub. It's a quaint restaurant off a main road. We didn't wait long at all to be seated. We arrived around 3:30-4:00. The waitress took our drink order right away; but as there were eight people in our party,... More

A pleasant surprise, great selection and hearty servings. I would definitely return. They stay busy but the wait to be seating was short.

I would not call this a diner but a typical Italian American restaurant based on the menu. There was a large group already seated (the little league local champs celebrating) but we were greeted an seated immediately. The owner (Dino) stopped at our table and shared some stories with pride and I have to say he clearly has pride for... More

A family operated diner with very good food. It's not a fancy or upscale place but the local residents and regulars love it. On this trip, I enjoyed the seafood platter. Plenty of fried whole belly clams, scallops, fish, and shrimp. Portions are substantial so you'll probably need a to go box. Plenty of parking and handicap access. If you're... More

Grinder bread tasted fresh but preferred more protein. Those of us who ordered Pork chops were pleased they were tasty-moist. Sit down service was pleasant and accommodating. Crowded seating too close for our particular business conversation but fine for informal. Very good brew of coffee.

food is always hot and fresh. some of the prices may seem a bit high especially for seniors but worth the trip.

If you love baked scrod this is the place to go. Family friendly atmosphere and a decent price. The baked scrod is usually what everyone in my party goes for. Fish is fresh daily and baked to perfection. Nice lightly breaded topping with a hint of butter. Pizza is yummy, grinders, you name it it's good at Gus's. We pass... More

This restaurant is very busy and I've been there frequently. The Baked Scrod is absolutely delicious, the Taco Salad is wonderful and the Grilled Pork Chops are fabulous. I could just go on and on but you get the idea. The soups are so-so and most of the deserts are not made on the premises. The Rice Pudding is home... More
