pleasantly surprised

travelling out of Boston toward NH on a Friday night we stopped in to get a quick meal. We were looking for just a little better than fast food without spending much money. We left the restaurant thrilled on all accounts. Excellent prime rib, excellent grilled swordfish dinner. The rolls were warm... read more

My husband and myself stopped at this restaurant on our way heading north. This restaurant, we found due to numerous visits since serves wonderful food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The restaurant is immaculate, staff is very nice, and there is plenty of parking. Portions are plentiful, if you leave hungry, you stopped at the wrong restaurant! Enjoy

I had breakfast here on a Sunday morning and the place was packed. We had to wait about 20 minutes and honestly it wasn't worth the wait. When we were seated the waitress asked us if we want coffee and she brought that right away but the rest of the time it seemed like forever for her to check on... More

I wouldn't run back here....tried it twice. A bit overpriced for bagged food. spotty service. It is clean but kind of a depressing atmosphere for some reason.

Again this place was recommended by a local, the guy at the liquor store across the street. Not much in the mood for a full meal I chose to have a bar seat and order off the appetizer menu. The décor is OK, a retro-style diner in front, restaurant seating toward the rear and bar seating. I ordered two of... More

Ordered a burger MR without a bun. Came on a bun and was MW. Waitress never came back to check on our meals, so when she finally did, my friends were 1/2 done with their meals. The waitress kind of argued with me that it was prepared MR. She finally took it away to have them remake it. She basically... More

I saw Reds on a Phantom a Gourmet, and was going to be nearby so I decided to try it our. The best way to describe a Reds is upscale diner. It doesn't look like a diner, but the food makes you feel the same way....satisfied, and comfortable. We were here on a brutally and snowy day, so we completely... More

Wide choice and good service, breakfast is very good big portions. Parking is limited . Late lunch or early supper is best.

We were in MA during the past snow storms and it was difficult to find somewhere open to eat. We saw Red's was open and decided to try it. It was GREAT! Their breakfast was delicious and cooked exactly as requested. The environment was warm and welcoming and the waitstaff was pleasant and professional. We will definitely go back the... More

Their kielbasa omelet is one of the best around if not the best. It has plenty meat in it and they also put cheese in it , simply delicious . Add some amazing home fries and toast and your breakfast is complete. Awesome.
