Good food for fair price

The atmosphere is pleasant. The menu extensive. Our waitress offered rolls while we made our choices. White cotton batting would describe them. Not a great experience. That being said our nachos were good. Hot from the oven served with dipping salsa and sour cream. My companion got shepards pie... read more

For years we loved this place for great inexpensive meals. In the last year, this place has declined substantially. We have to ask for the fries to be 'extra crispy' in order to get them cooked. Even the burgers got lousy; cold, no toasted bun. With one exception, the bar staff are inattentive and make a lousy drink. On my... More

We ate here about a year ago and it seemed like the place was ready to go out of business. The food was bland at best, the ceiling tiles looked worn, and overall there was this sense of decline and despair in the business. Yesterday we came it looked like they had turned things around completely! The food was delicious,... More

Spud's has been my parents favorite place to eat for years. But then again, my Dad liked their liver and onions... go figure. Sometimes a good restaurant experience comes from knowing how to order. I read some of the other reviews and have to chuckle. First thing I do in a new restaurant is to ask the staff what their... More

We love going here after a day of shopping since it is almost always on the way! What luck we are usually there on a Saturday and kids eat free! I am in love with their chicken parm! Just the right balance of crispy chicken sauce and cheese to satisfy! My daughter (age 6) loves the combo for kids of... More

Lobster Pie comes with a fresh, crisp salad and your choice of veggie. I chose mashed squash ( in season also). It was so good we went there a couple days later and my husband ordered it... More
