Stopped on our way to Okemo Friday night. The food was average American fare. The wait staff was friendly. The biggest drawback was how cold it was in the restaurant. They had couple space heaters on. When we asked about the temperature, they turned one of the space heaters towards us. That did not make much of a difference. I... More

The food here was terrible. We order chicken parm, and it basically was a chicken tender with ragu sauce. The pizza had no taste! (Kids would not eat) The service was poor as well.

The waitress was unsure if they had enough wings. Then onto the entrees several ordered the filet mignon the waitress again unsure if they had enough. The waitress went to check and came... More

Is this place italian or meat grill? Italian food here is terrible. The steak on volcanic rock was delicious. Everything else was terrible. The sauce on the pasta and pizza was from a jar of prego -- terrible. Told the waitress the vegetables were the worst I've ever had and she said and did nothing. Go to potbellys or mr.... More

Ate here on Oct 27, 2014 on a Monday night, one old lady in the restaurant at 7:15 P M. Should have known not to stay but decided to try it. My wife ordered Penne Ala Vodka and it was uneatable, I ordered chicken parm and I couldn't even cut the ROUND chicken. Sauce on top of the linguine was... More

We were here after a long trip in the car, starving, and just wanted to get some grub. The server was trying to be funny but it just came across wrong. You know those guys who try to make a joke but end up insulting his audience? Repeatedly? That was my server. Anyway, the food came out - I ordered... More

We are at a motorcycle rally and the town is gearing up for all the bikers. We went here for dinner and we both had burgers and fries. We really enjoyed our meal and the prices were reasonable. If you're at the rally, go to this place.

I imagine this place is probably a hot spot during ski season, but in the summer I would avoid it. The decor, food and service is nothing special. Sysco food by the looks of it. Okay beer selection at least. Lots of better places for food and family fun than this place.
