“Good Food and Service”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

On travel to the area for business. I ordered the broiled haddock and it was great and fresh. The salad was also very fresh. I would recommend this place to others. Service, in my opinion, was above average.

“Great location & Decent Service, but Average to Good Food”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

My wife and I had a late lunch here two weeks ago. The only thing distinct in my memory is that it was average and not memorable. The location is great, right near lots of shopping and a Market Basket. The atmosphere is pleasant and the service was very good. The food was OK, but forgetable. My wife did enjoy her meal, though she did say she's had somewhat better at their Malden Location. The fries were just a bit soggy, and didn't have a lot of flavor. My burger was basically average as opposed to being "a really great burger" I've had elsewhere. One gauge I use for how good or bad a meal is, is how much of it I eat, and how easy it is for me to finish. This meal was certainly not "horrible" or anything, but it was a struggle of sorts to finish, which means I didn't enjoy all that much. A good meal will be no problem for me at all to finish off, espically burger, which are a favorite of mine. I did find the menu to a bit lacking in variety, but that's probably just my personal preferences. I have to say I enjoy the food much more at their Malden, MA location.

In summary, I'd say they have very decent service and pleasant atmosphere, and "meh"-to-good food.

“Consitantly Good”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Nothing too exciting here, but I don't have anything bad to say. Service and food are about what you would expect from this type of place. Good for families, but also nice to sit with friends in the bar.
