The lasagna is wonderful, the service was great and the atmosphere was just fabulous! The place was packed with "tweens" and they were all behaving, it seemed as if this is the community place to be! It was a refreshing step back into simpler times....More

Visited for Saturday night dinner. The place is packed and full of positive energy. Very friendly! Great old time gear lining the walls. The flat iron steak was the lure and it lived up to the billing. Flavorful and presented on a sizzling cast iron...More

My husband and I shared the HUGE banana split. We had visited before and always said we would try one. As stated in other reviews old time soda shop feel even pressed tin ceilings. He also had the roast beef sandwaich that he thoroughly enjoyed.

I visited at lunchtime accompanied by a large group from the Woodwright School next door (my life is complete -- I made dovetail joints with Roy Underhill). Service was quick, friendly, and informative. My only regret is that I live too far away to visit...More

This place was highly recommended by friends and family whom have visited there several times before. Very kid friendly environment with lots of old-fashioned memorabilia; feels like old time pharmacy / drug store. We ordered two milkshakes for four of us and still had leftovers!...More
