“Average food at average prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Ate here for lunch with my family and wasn't very impressed. Food was average, nothing special. Seemed like more of a breakfast place so maybe we will try again.

“Waitress was wonderful, owners terrible.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

I would go back only for the wait staff. The girls are wonderful and efficient. However, had to listen to owners yell and berate the workers all night. It was painful, I almost stood up and said something at one point. Will definitely inform the rest of Guilford of this. Not right for a grown man to yell at young girls that way.

“The Brownstone House - Guilford, Connecticut”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

We went here for lunch back in the middle of August to see what the place was like, we should have waited and went instead for breakfast. The lunch menu is nothing to speak of. The place is really just a souped up virgin of the Friendly's that use to be there and recently closed. The food was --- just, --- OK. Only other comment we could make is that the waitress hovered over our table waiting to give us the bill. As I said the breakfast menu is the only one we would be interested in. Lunch? We'll go some where else.
