Excellent family dining!

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.

Used to be Friar Tuck's. Still have large selection of options for the health-conscious. 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

Great creative salads and... More

We enjoy eating here when we want good food without the high price. A family run place that really knows how to deliver good food and service. Nothing fancy but always good.

We enjoy having breakfast here often. They have the most delicious baked goods from pies, cookies, muffins, cakes, etc. We especially enjoy their omelettes.

Very comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. This restaurant revisits the neighborhood restaurant of days gone by. The food selections are basic (homemade soups, fresh breads, burgers, sandwiches, full dinners and weigh-watchers menu) and delicious. The prices are very reasonable. A very nice place for a comfortable yummy meal.
