We have dined here on many a sunday morning and always find the staff to be attentive and professional. The food is great, delivered timely, and is reasonably priced. Long lines after church lets out, and for good reason. Try to go in the middle of church!

Here we were, in the Boston area on a Monday night, looking for a nice, simple place to eat. We had just left Minute Man Park in Concord, and we wanted a restaurant that was local and had basic food. Nothing fancy, nothing overpriced and overexperimental, just basic good food. Bickford's came up for a search of family restaurants, and... More

This is very much like the kind of restaurant I remember from the 1950s o in northern New Jersey. However, they do a good job of what they offer. The onion rings were particularly well-cooked and they cooked my hamburger to order. They also brought me a plethora of raw onion for my burger, as I had requested. My wife... More

Nothing fancy, but the food tastes good and the service is fast and friendly. The lobster roll was fresh, with chunks of lobster and veggies. Veggie slaw and clam chowder were great pairings. Food has always been tasty and filling, and you can relax and enjoy.

We were looking for a new place to enjoy breakfast. Bickfords is that place. There is plenty of food on each plate coming from the kitchen. Omelet was our choice and even with sharing we had plenty to eat. They serve a toasted corn muffin with the omelet. It really a good choice for us. They also have lunch and... More

This is a very family friendly place. Don't expect to be wowed by the decor, though. The breakfast is excellent. Try the Lobster Benedict, or the Giant Apple Pancake. Can't beat the eggs and bacon. Dinner is outstanding. Their fish is fresh daily and the baked fish with bread crumbs is wonderful. Sandwiches are good, and if you are up... More

Ate once in a pinch. Food order was unremarkable and relatively bland. Prices seemed fairly high for what was offered. The overall feel just felt dated. On the plus side the staff was very polite and friendly.

We went on Sunday for breakfast around 9 and there was already a queue. Gave our names and waited for about 10 minutes. The place seemed very popular to the locals. It's a cozy sports decorated place, with hockey sticks and other sports memorabilia adorning the walls. Service was friendly and prompt. The food arrived quickly. Both our plates were... More
