We had a great meal at The People's Kitchen during our visit to Worcester. The food and service were good. Definitely try the wine pairing with your meal. Highly recommend their array of chocolate on the dessert menu.

On our day loud awkward yelling coming from employee area (rowdiness, guessing boss went home early). Also I know it’s picky but metal/angry ambiance music choice a negative. On...More

The wife and I had a great date night here recently. Food varies often (several times per month it seems) and has some unique touches. The drink selection is pretty good. I found it lacked some beer depth (1 type of IPA or 1 style...More
