Decent Place

Food was very good. Portions and quality was excellent. I liked the casual atmosphere and was not pressured to leave when we were finished eating. All in, I would rate it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

I usually start a review with dessert, and this is no exception. The bread pudding was unlike others, in that it consisted of chunks of butterscotch bread cubes instead of large pieces of bread. The cubes were topped with Carmel sauce and butterscotch bits. For the salad course, I had kale and quinoa salad with raisins and walnuts and Joe's... More

Despite it being late, we were served food and drinks. Fantastic service by Nicole (I think!). Amazing peach mango drink. Good food. 10% off food since we were staying in the Holiday Inn next door.

Went here for a quick bite to eat on a Saturday afternoon. Got seated immediately and brought some fresh baked bread. We ordered a bunch of burgers and got them within a decent amount of time. All the food was cooked as ordered and was pretty good. Would likely return.

We've eaten here the few times we've been in Woburn and are always very happy. The food is delicious - and fresh. Can't say enough how good it is. The service is excellent and the prices are right. Also I really like the atmosphere - it keeps improving every time we come. It reminds me of an old fashioned NYC... More

Have been here a few times ... mostly at lunch time. Excellent burgers, and salads, and a whole lot more on this American fare based menu. Service is great, and the bar makes this a good spot for weekend fun also. Parking is ample and the place is very clean. A bit on the pricey side, but very good, consistently.... More

The restaurant is connected directly to the Holiday Inn Express making it very convenient and the food and service are very good. I have eaten there several times and have not been disappointed. The Caesar salad was very good.

I came here on Wednesday afternoon with five friends. We had two waitresses. They were nice but both were slow to refill drinks for our table while they seemed able to refill drinks for nearby tables rather quickly. That was a head scratcher. I went with the French Dip. It was OK but a little more fatty than I would... More

Steve, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We take all of our guest's reviews very seriously, and I wanted you to know that I have shared your comments with both the service staff, and the kitchen manager. With that sandwich we use shaved prime rib, and while it is a great quality product it tends to... More
