“Wonderful Road Trip Experience”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

The Sugarloaf was closed for a while, but it's got a new owner (Tom Costello), a new menu, and they've given the place a full makeover.

We stopped in on a recent Sunday and we were delighted by what we found. I ordered a burger and it was one of the best I've ever had, hands down! The ingredients were fresh and the burger was cooked to perfection--nice and juicy and fresh. My accomplice had a house salad, and it was fresh, crispy, and the lettuce wasn't wet like so many places.

The atmosphere was that of a little roadhouse--casual but with memorable food that you'd find in any *good* restaurant. The service was great--always attentive and pleasant.

We went there on the recommendation of a friend who had their Friday night prime rib special--who said it was the best she'd ever had.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants really good food at a reasonable price.

We'll go back very soon!

“Great place to stop take a break, enjoy the history and a great meal”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Great historic olde inn, recently remodeled and re-opened. Very worthwhile for a stop for lunch, reasonably priced and quite tasty. Mostly sandwiches for lunch, some local clientele. Highly recommend stopping in for a good meal.
