I had the Chicken Staler which was as good as any chicken dish I've had since Hamersley's closed. My son had the Mac & Cheese which he thought was great. Great, friendly staff. Worth the trip to go to this small neighborhood place in Dorchester.

We wanted authentic Bostonian food and we found it here. The clam chowder was the best I've ever had (it actually had clams in it and wasn't just cream). We really enjoyed our scallops as well. The staff was friendly and efficient. If I could...More
