We found this little gem by almost running out of gas after we left the Canadian boarder. A cute log cabin with a country chic interior. The menu boasts several delicious Portuguese dishes that we were impressed to see so far off the interstate! Karla our server was super sweet and really made the happy accident of finding the Half...

We were a large party and they gave us a waitress whom was not yet trained for large crowd, but done her best. The owner was rude to her. Food was not great and some meals burnt and dry. They also forgot several items ordered and one meal later than others, like they forgot it. Their french onion soup is... More

My husband ordered the Sea Bass topped with garlic shrimp for $21.95 The fish was actually Swai and the shrimp were precooked small shrimp from Sams Club. Terrible waste of money. Another in our party had a Breaded haddock sandwich which was also... More

Nice clean restaurant, food is so so, but it' s worth the trip because of the bartender. She makes the trip worthwhile. Thanks Joann, you are the Best.

Our recent visit to the Halfway House was approximately our fifth or sixth. We live in Essex County and are always looking for our new favorite local restaurant. We had high hopes for this little place. The owner is very pleasant and welcoming and it's obvious that she has dedicated herself to trying to create a bright, clean, cheerful atmosphere... More

Quaint ADK joint with a South American flare. The 38 oz Steak goes a long way to satisfy the appetite after coming off the trail! But go a bit fiurther & have a pop from the well stocked bar. Great service from an appreciative owner!

We are in the E'town area for a few weeks (staying at Lincoln Pond) and was told about the Halfway House. From the moment we walked in we loved the charm and cozy decor. Sat on the enclosed porch and while there was construction going on (adding on a patio) it was fine. We had two kiddos with us and... More

I took my younger sister for a graduation dinner. After 30 minutes we had no soup, a very oily french onion, and it was an hour before we received our sandwiches. There was one other table there before we ordered yet 4 tables that came in 15-30 minutes after us were served dinners before us. Greatly disappointed.
