Decided to try this swamp on a recommendation from the Phantom Gourmet - boy if this is what they consider fine at a reasonable price, hand me the barf bag! No thank you. Suggest you keep going south to Legacy Place - good selection there.

Took my wife out for a quick lunch after shopping the nearby malls - should have eaten at the many eateries in the mall instead. Our meals were best described as slop, not very well prepared, and while we were there for lunch and not expecting some fine dining - their prices were far from what we got for our... More

to being a great place to go regularly, as we used to do before they remodeled and changed their apparent goals from "good food cheap" to "good food moderately priced and lets get folks in and out of there in a hurry". Remodel a year or so ago changed most of the booths and tables to high tops with barstools... More

This is one of the place that open late in Dedham! Always has great uplifting and local vibe! Food is so so but it has welcoming feel to it. Everyone seems to be repeaters!

We stopped here on a Friday night. The restaurant is very small with a handful of booths and 3 high top pub tables. The food was excellent. The fried clam strips were the highlight of dinner. The atmosphere is local pub/ sports bar. Not the best place to bring kids although there were a few there. Great value

We had a late dinner at the half way cafe last week lots of fun. Service was good and food was good. Decent beer selection and the steamed clams were awesome. Turkey tips were yummy, great sandwiches too! We will keep it on our list!

A good bar food menu. Good beer selections. A gluten free menu. This makes this work for most people for who are looking for a casual meal in a sports bar environment. Not a large place. I recommend it.
