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.

The Halfway Cafe in Marlborough is one of six locations, although its the only one I have been to. I work just down the street and the service here is quick enough for most lunch breaks. The sandwiches here are phenomenal. I have had a great burger here, and their "Cape Cod Rueben" is an awesome fish sandwich with coleslaw... More

Mix of families, couples and singles in the restaurant. Bar was moderately full. Asked waitress for recommendations. she suggested either the Fish and chips, or Build your own Burger... More

We have been to the Halfway cafe a couple of times. We left today wondering why we don't go there more often. Food is reasonably priced and service is great! From the outside of the building it looks like you are entering a real "townie" bar, but the inside is very clean and inviting for all people of all ages.... More

Yes, Halfway is all the way good!... We readily enjoyed the food, the service and the atmosphere ... Definitely worth a visit... We had the clam chowder, fish fry and a burger.... All was delicious and perfectly cooked... Fish was tender and juicy.. Try it you'll like it.
