My husband is a car enthusiast, so we wanted to try Route 66. The atmosphere and all the cool stuff in the restaurant is worth a look around. My husband had a grilled haddock sandwich and it came and looked like it wasn't cooked. There...More

Every time I try something different on the menu I am always happy! Tried the taco salad through takeout and it was amazing. Love all the extra stuff and the presentation was great

I had a burger which was good. Wife had the nachos. She didn't care for them. Kinda dry, too much cheese and she would have like sour cream on them.

Great little place for lunch, especially for families. Fun atmosphere, good food, and great service. This is not fine dining, but the lobster dishes were excellent. Very friendly and hard working waitress.
