“Home style cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Enjoyed the Thanksgiving Feast. Salad, complete turkey dinner including, mashed potatoes, butternut squash, dressing, fresh cut dark and light meat turkey,, gravy and an extra gravy boat brought to the table,, homemade cranberry sauce and followed by Indian pudding and ice cream(out of the world) or deep dish Apple pie and ice cream and coffee for $29. Absolutely delicious. Sitting in comfortable upholstered chairs. Just great.

“HUGE portions!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

After seeing huge portions coming to the tables of our fellow diners, we opted for some house made chips, clam chowder and salad. The prices are very very reasonable. The breads served were good. Chips were fantastic! Only problem was the soup - it was loaded with potatoes. More of a potato chowder than a clam chowder which is too bad. It was a nice and thick chowder but it clearly needed more clams!
BTW-Stop in the bakery - to die for! Especially the pumpkin whoopie pie!

“Quite nice and cozy place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

The old building itself was worth the visit for dinner. We spent the day at The Sturbridge Village and came here for dinner. Easy to find, plenty of parking in the back lot and easy walking access. The staff was wonderful. We were a pretty easy going group of four and enjoyed the warm cozy dining, drinks and food. The dining room was very busy. Getting drinks from the bar was a bit slow but we had a nice dinner overall.

“Tourist Trap, but Nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Very ordinary food and service.

It's a nice place to stop between Boston and Hartford.

Take time to stroll around the grounds and the neighborhood.

The bread offerings are below par.

The wait staff seems overworked to the point that customers are an annoyance.
