Whenever in Boston area visiting grandkids, we always pick an evening for dinner at the Halfway Cafe in Marlborough -- outstanding boneless chicken wings and huge portions of fries with lots of dipping sauces to choose from -- beer menu just doesn't end -- parking real easy right out fron -- popcorn snack while you wait

I really wanted the lettuce wrap, and we really did want our appetizer! All that aside, the kids enjoyed their meals which were Kids Grilled Cheese (hard to mess up), Mac & Cheese (disappointed...

We were staying at the Fairfield Inn down the road and were recommended this restaurant by the front desk. It was good casual place for a quick dinner. We had sandwiches and burgers which were very good. Good service.

I've been here many times as I live close by. I've never had a bad experience. The food is really good, the service is fast and friendly, and it is really inexpensive.

I have been twice in the last two months, both times for lunch. I happen to like diners and booths. I had a very good roast beef sandwich which was a meal in itself. French fries came with the dish.

Always came here and started off with the best buffalo chicken wings around. Went there recently and was told they discontinued that sauce. Big mistake!! Please bring back the Halfway Hot buffalo wings!!!! They were the best of any around!

After seeing this restaurant on Phantom Gourmet and then being in town I remembered the review and had high hopes, but the food fell flat. We ordered a boneless wings appetizer to split. The wings were crunchy, not what I expected when biting in to a wing, but I didn't complain. Never had them before so I didn't know if... More
