good for lunch

Halfway Café is pub style dining. Very casual. Good salads and sandwiches and in - expensive. Good for a casual lunch or light dinner.

Not sure what everyone talks about regarding the Halfway Café - at least the one in Sudbury/Marlboro. Food just okay - actually still cannot get over the stick, quite dirty menus that they are using - I will not return.

The Cafe now had $5 burgers on Monday. A steal, considering that their burgers are cooked just the way you order them and are delicious. Their fries are very good also. Hard to beat this place for a filling, delicious and inexpensive meal.

Halfway Café in Marlborough provides good food at a good value. Steak tips with buzz sauce are the way to go. Friendly service, lots of popcorn along with a fair number of beers on tap makes this a fine casual eating establishment. Halfway is not fancy and is not the place for an uber romantic evening but just fine for... More

This is our go-to place for burgers and fries. Aside from actually cooking the burgers the way you want, the hand cut fries at the Halfway Café are awesome. There are always a number of dishes reasonable priced and they are pretty accommodating with diet restrictions (low-carb). Another great item they offer are the wings. You can get them a... More

It's a rinky dink joint on rt 20 but the food is better than the appearance. Burgers are very good, the fries are great, the onion rings are addictive. Steaktips are excellent. Prices are very good and so is the service. You get more than you would expect at the Halfway Cafe in both quality and quantity

Go here when you are hungry. The portions are generous. Seating is limited but the tables turn over fast.

I recently sauntered into the Halfway Cafe in Marlborough MA, never thinking it was related to the Halfway Cafe in Watertown MA. Upon being seated I felt a similarity of the quintessential ambience and friendly staff of Watertown MA. I must say that the food, staff and local feel was outstanding. As always I challenge the menu, varied pub menu,... More

Don't expect haute cuisine, but if you're in the mood for really good ol' American food, this place is for you. Family-friendly, great service, we eat here frequently and have never been disappointed.
