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!

We wanted to sit inside and discovered just a few booths and tables, but were seated immediately with a plate of fresh popcorn. The menu is limited, but has all the essentials. We went back a second time and sampled Turkey tips (excellent), BBQ Ribs (very good), Texas Chili (very good) and a garden salad (very well done). We loved... More

We visit the Halfway every couple of months. This restaurant is a pub with lots of TV's playing sports, reasonable variety of draft beer, FREE popcorn and pub food. I rate it a 4 out of 5 using that criteria. The food is reasonably priced, lots of it and the atmosphere is fun. You can have a meal and a... More

We've been going to Halfway Cafe for years now for our Friday out-of-office lunches. In that past year I'm not sure if the management changed or just the chefs but the food is A LOT better than used to be. Lots of options that are surprisingly unique for a basic restaurant. Service is pretty good, again much better than it... More

I've been here 3 or 4 times in the past couple of years. I've been able to order some healthier options on the menu like the stir fry. They serve popcorn while you are waiting. Typical pub atmosphere, nice staff. We will definitely go back.
