Great experience

My mom and I came here for dinner while in town for a hockey tournament. When we walked in we were one of two groups in the bar. But I read good reviews on Trip Advisor so we stayed. I got the steak tips and my mom got the wings. They were both really good! The bartender sat and talked... More

Each time I eat here the quality is so far off from the previous visit it makes me wonder if I am even at the same place. Service is always OK. Never truly feel welcomed or comfortable but rather that I am a burden in their day. I have tried it numerous times hoping it would change but sadly it... More

The food was good and so was the pricing. The kids liked the free popcorn and all the tv's. Lots on the menu. However the overall place was just average.

We enjoyed their veggie wrap, and the service was timely. The only difficulty was the lack of parking, but we found a space in an adjoining lot.

I haven't been to the Halfway since they changed the menu. It is horrible. I had the Spring flatbread it was nothing to write home about the bread was soggy and they threw a mixed green salad on top not appealing at all

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.

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

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
