The hot peppers provided the heat but the other ingredients were somewhat lacking in flavor. The taco shell itself was tasty... read more

My wife and I have gone to the Halfway in Dedham since it open in 1990. Went to Canton restaurant this evening and what a disappointment. Ordered 3lbs of Steamers and when it was placed on our table it gave off a foul smell. Have enjoyed Steamers many times around New England but have never smelled anything so bad. Of... More

Nine of us went for lunch, including four kids! Everybody really enjoyed their meals. Good atmosphere, good service. We would definitely visit again.

I made my first visit to the Halfway in a few years. Based on the food quality, small menu, poor beer selection, and average service, I won't be back anytime soon. If you're looking for a bar/pub experience you can find better in Canton.

We have been going to the Halfway Cafe's in Dedham and Canton, Mass. for years. It is one of our favorite places for good quick service and good meal choices and savings on the menu items. A full bar, a short wait and especially low menu choice items on certain days or day of the week.

Stopped in on a Monday night for "customer appreciation day." Service was super slow, our waitress didn't know what beers they had on the menu. We waited patiently for our food to come out; it was fine, we had our drinks and good company to keep us occupied. A waitress finally came out with what looked like our food (at... More

If you happen to be at Cobb's Corner and need to grab a quick bite to eat, The Halfway Cafe is pretty convenient and reasonably fast. Furthermore, if you've got hungry, impatient kids, they have free popcorn to munch on while you wait. That said, having been here a bunch of times due to its convenient location, I know that...

The Emerson Burger with a fried egg on top is delicious. This is the best burger I have had in a long time. I highly recommend it!
