Despite no WiFi the blues music was great. The food was very good. The chowder is not to be missed. Sandwich meat portion was above-average. Sourdough was fresh. Wait for food was 5 -10 minutes with 3 customers waiting.

En route from Boston to the Adirondacks, we searched out a few options and took a chance on this place. Just sandwiches and salads, but a welcome alternative to Popeyes and MacDonalds. Very nice seating inside and out!

We saw this restaurant as we drove through this beautiful little town, and decided to stop. We were not disappointed! We had absolutely delicious sandwiches and courteous service! The restored historic home the restaurant is housed in is beautiful as well.
