“Great dive bar”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Fantastice food, like the reuben, salads, hamburgers, great atmospehere. The service is a bit grumpy. Their is a blond waitress there who does not know hoe to smile and acts like she is doing you a favor by serving you--kind of adds some charm to the place.

“Top 10 Burgers in Fairfield County”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

When you are looking for a delicious burger, Cherry Street East is the place. The bar / restaurant has been serving some of the best burgers in the area for years and each day the restaurant hand forms the burgers as well as hand cuts some of the best onion rings around. My go-to burger is the Vermonster, with bacon and Cheddar on an English Muffin. I also suggest if you order on the roll to order the roll toasted, a much better way to go. The sweet potato fries are also delicious.
