Had been at the Canton Halfway Cafe for lunch with business colleagues to celebrate one's birthday. Had a limited amount of time at lunch. Food was cold and greasy. The "birthday boy" was given the wrong order. It was sent back, only to return as we were asking for the check because we had to leave. Waitress was completely oblivious... More

Have been to this restaurant many different times for both lunch and dinner. Sat inside most of the time but also outside. Food is average and service is average. Not sure when you go what type of service or food you are going to receive but it is easy to get to, lots of parking and convenient.

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
