Sadly this new restaurant in Harwich is closed. It was a convenient location but for some reason they were not able to make a go of it.

Went here for lunch. Didn't have several items on menu. Seemed disorganized and we were only people in the place. Very friendly and trying hard, but need to get organized and run it like a real restaurant real soon. Doubtful we will go back. Food was ok.

I love the service her. The fun includes the food, beverages, and desserts. Plus, I get a great view.

Stopped by on Oct 26, 2012. It was very busy, but we were seated quickly with menus...and then we went invisible! It was so cool. The waiter never saw us, the girl who brought water and soft drinks to the table next to us never saw us! (Even though we were seated first!) After about 15 minutes of trying to... More

We had a great experience tonight. Auntie was friendly and welcoming and all the staff made us and our 3 year old welcome. Menu has something for everyone including lots of dinner specials. My mother loved the stuffed peppers and mashed potatoes. I had a good (if somewhat basic) burger and delicious, crispy fries. My dad loved the liver special... More

Starving and heading back to a hotel room we decided to stop here and give it a try. The building was obviously an old Friendly's and the new sign was barely readable but it said "Family Diner". What could go wrong? Well, being met at the door by a hostess who is called Aunty and you instantly become cousins is... More

We walked in the door and waited 5 minutes before even being acknowledged. The customer at the counter asked several times when her food would be ready while we stood there. Finally the hostess came over handed us menus and said she'd be right with us. We stood there another 10 minutes while the customer at the counter told them... More

The "family" here has just recently opened their diner in a former Friendly's on Route 28 in Harwich. I think they may have rushed into this with little or no planning. The menu is HUGE including all day breakfast, lunch and dinner offers all of which are available all day. This proves too much for the kitchen staff which has... More
