Nice, clean, family friendly restaurant. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Large menu with a lot of variety. The menus includes many specials for senior citizens. The soups are plentiful (10 fresh daily) and are very tasty. All of the meals (including breakfasts and lunches) served to our group of 8 were attractive, fresh and tasty.

My husband and I frequently stop in at Friars for a quick bite after a long work day, or for Sunday morning breakfast. The menu offers many choices, and we have never been disappointed. They offer several soup selections everyday, and daily dinner specials, something that we enjoy. The staff is always friendly and the service always good. A wonderful... More

A relative, who lives in the neighborhood, suggested this for lunch, and, what a great choice. I had the chicken pot pie, it was absolutely wonderful, also had the potato soup which also was excellent. When the server says... More

This homey restaurant is a great place to go for soup and baked goods. My father was a cook here as a teenager and whenever he is in town we likes to go back to eat. My husband and I now make it a regular dinner place because the food and service are so good.

If you're a Weight Watcher, regular menu does not list stats, but Healthy For You menu does, including those necessary to figure your points. I would highly recommend taking your Points calculator.There were some big surprises there: high carb and fat counts on many of the... More

This restaurant has been owned and operated by the same family for three generations. Don't let that scare you away. The menu always has the classics, especially the fried cod and chips on Fridays, but they also add new fresh dishes with each season. The neighborhood is Italian and Polish, so there are some great dishes like Nana used to... More
