Best sauce in town! Reuben's are awesome. They are the best. Great family restaurant that has been around for years. My out of town family always stop in when they are home.

My wife and I have not been here for a number of years, but we have enjoyed their food many times. We stopped for lunch to check it out. It was almost past lunchtime, and there were plenty of cars in the parking lot. Thought we would have trouble getting a table, but there was a nice cozy table in... More

Had visited this venue several years ago and was delighted to find it still going and even improved. In truth, it's a bit loud, but , generally, it's the sound of family and friends enjoying themselves. The fare was excellent but the rave review goes to the dessert, a two layer Pumpkin Pie- to die for. This restaurant boasts some... More

Don't let the exterior fool you. We went past this to another place to eat which didn't impress us. Had to wait 15 minutes for a table on a Sunday night . The food, service and the quaint atmosphere were all great

Awesome place if you're dining in. We frequent them often. Unfortunately every time we've ordered take out, our order has been incomplete or not right upon arriving home. Make sure you check your order before driving away! We had to go back in to request the sides that were missing from our order and then when we made it home,... More

So many excellent menu items to choose from. Pizzas are terrific, all the Italian dishes are outstanding, every sandwich is delicious. Nightly specials are always a good bet too.

After a long day on the road we were looking for a nice home cooked type of meal. Jackpot! We shared the creamiest New England clam chowder, a crispy fresh side house salad and the Italian combo. The Italian combo was a variety of several Italian specialties ... Each one tasted home made, fresh and the dish was served piping... More

We had the slow cooked prime rib and the broiled haddock which were very good. We also loved the pasta. The place has a relaxed atmosphere and the service is also very good.

The person at the front desk of our Days Inn recommended this restaurant. He was right. Very busy with many "locals" and families. Even though quite busy 6:30 on a Saturday night, we were seated (party of 2) in less than five minutes. Order taken promptly, salads delivered very quickly. Main entre' took a little time, but reasonable considering how... More
