Nice pleasant place to hang out and staff were really nice. The food is decent pub grub but nothing special. Nice selection of beers on offer.

Hamburgers and entrees usual for a cafe/bar. It has booth seating as well as at bar. The hamburgers and other foods served are good and plentiful. The only drawback if just st dropping by is that it tends to get noisy. The crowd is jovial and never seen any atmosphere but pleasant and respective of others. I would bring company... More

I've never had a bad meal here. The turkey tips and wings are fantastic. Good consistent food and reasonable prices.

Stopped in obviously, for a quick lunch. Seated quickly and waitstaff took my order within minutes. Had the chicken lime taco trio which were good but a bit messy to eat. The hot peppers provided the heat but the other ingredients were somewhat lacking in flavor. The taco shell itself was tasty but the chicken was bland. Definitely a 2... More

My wife and I have gone to the Halfway in Dedham since it open in 1990. Went to Canton restaurant this evening and what a disappointment. Ordered 3lbs of Steamers and when it was placed on our table it gave off a foul smell. Have enjoyed Steamers many times around New England but have never smelled anything so bad. Of... More

Nine of us went for lunch, including four kids! Everybody really enjoyed their meals. Good atmosphere, good service. We would definitely visit again.

I made my first visit to the Halfway in a few years. Based on the food quality, small menu, poor beer selection, and average service, I won't be back anytime soon. If you're looking for a bar/pub experience you can find better in Canton.

We have been going to the Halfway Cafe's in Dedham and Canton, Mass. for years. It is one of our favorite places for good quick service and good meal choices and savings on the menu items. A full bar, a short wait and especially low menu choice items on certain days or day of the week.

Stopped in on a Monday night for "customer appreciation day." Service was super slow, our waitress didn't know what beers they had on the menu. We waited patiently for our food to come out; it was fine, we had our drinks and good company to keep us occupied. A waitress finally came out with what looked like our food (at... More
