Ate here a few weeks ago on a Tuesday night. Our server, a young male, was waiting tables on his first day, he should not of been. Our sons sprite came in a regular glass and not a kids cup. My large water was never delivered. Asked for an empty cup for my son's soda and we received a kid's... 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

Looking for some nice fresh lobster at affordable prices. Here's our secret place for that. Lobster Pie or Lobster Roll -it's your choice. 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

Steak Tips were terrible, all fat !! Haddock w/ crab was served in a small tin dish and looked like a weight watchers meal. Turkey dinner was another joke, it appears like shredded turkey ready for a soup !! Wine glasses were dirty and the soda cups tasted like ajax. The restaurant appears tired and the air vents make it... More

Looking for horsemeat?? The steaktips were all grissell and fat. This place is going down hill rather quickly. They have removed the special board from the dining area and placed it at the entrance of the restaurant, I find this rather odd. Competition will tackel this place soon.

I always feel bad about writing a bad review but this place was just not good in so many ways. Only one of 5 of us had food that was OK. The atmosphere is kind of depressing. The food ranged from not good to downright awful. The cheeseburger was decent. The fish sandwiches were NOT good. They said it was... More

Their ribs are fall off the bone delicious! And for that price you couldn't cook them at home. The food and service is consistently very good.
