Cute casual atmosphere with nice small bar area, gf's food was great (marinated chicken) mine was slightly below average shepards pie. Good variety of sides and beverages. Cashier was friendly but the overly loud cooks were not. Good sized portions for reasonable price. If I was hungry and in the area, I'd consider eating here again.

On November 21, 2011 "The Restaurant", Woburn's favorite dining spot, had a Grand Opening for it's new addition called "The Bar"!

This is one restaurant split into two and the Grand Opening of the Bar was nothing less than what you would expect from Peter, The Owner. He raised the bar again, with "The Bar!"

The Bar design was spectacular, beautiful every where you looked, with a colorful light show display in sparkly etched glass that lines the entire back wall of the bar and it is a classy, upscale feel. It's amazing that The Bar now sits in the same spot that use to be just part of The Restaurant.

The new Bar menu was impressive with piled high nachos with The Restaurant's side famous chili - the two restaurants cross serve each other now for food and service. They have a fine dining menu, specials, happy hour kind of appetizer deals, and I saw a Pizza Menu!

The Bar staff is dressed in classy black and white uniforms, and they were very fun! They seem to be great additions to Peter's already friendly and personality filled The Restaurant crew!

The full service Bar is stocked and beautiful with black sparkly granite and the back drop of the Bar has a light show with colors changing every few minutes and dropped from the ceiling glass and green checkered panels that light up in a pretty green that is just state-of-the-art with decorative colorful canopy art designs also hung from the ceiling.

The Restaurant has won so many awards and truly is Woburn and surrounding towns favorite eatary and now The Bar ... blew it out of the park! Peter has the perfect set up there now - casual, killer breakfasts, lunch and dinners and cafetaria dining where you can now also get cocktail service and anything from The Bar full drink menu, ranging from Bloody Mary's to frozen drinks, martini's, mimosa's, sangrias, etc. - to going there for an elegant, fine dining night out at The Bar - to going in some Sunday to watch the game on one of their 5 or 6 new flat screen tvs, having breakfast in your jeans and a Blood Mary with your pancakes because you had too much of a good time at the Bar on Saturday night! Ha, ha!

Family dining at The Restuarant - great value and price, huge portions!
Fine dining at The Bar - still good value and price that is on target with the experience.
Date night - yes! Girl's night out - yes! Guys night out - definately! To watch the games!
The Restaurant is a haven for all of the business professionals and the favorite dining spot in Woburn and The Bar no doubt will be the favorite night spot, ladies, for nice professional men!

The biggest challenge now is a budget to be able to go there every day for all of the occassions it fits. The Bar is open until 10pm even Sunday and 11pm Thurs - Sat!

If you are in town, this is a must see! Make it your first place to go. You will not regret it and you will be back!

Best of luck, Peter!

I went to The Restaurant with a friend for breakfast. Right off the bat, I was pleased that it was located directly next to a free municipal parking lot - very convenient. I had read that cafeteria-style ordering style is fast-paced and intimidating, so I purposedly held back and reviewed the menu to decide what I wanted to order. I highly recommend this - this restaurant is not built for hemming and hawing when it's your turn to order. From the moment I ordered forward, I was immediately fascinated with the flow of the kitchen (which is right in front of you). There are 4 people total cooking and managing the kitchen, and they are a well-oiled machine. One takes orders, runs the toaster, and disseminates the rest of the orders across the other 3, who are cooking all of the food. Given the # of people coming through the restaurant ordering and the pace at which the orders are put up, I was highly impressed. The food was terrific breakfast food - hearty and very generous portions, but not dripping with grease or overindulgent. Lastly, the atmosphere is modern and a decent space - I was surprised that on a Saturday morning, my friend and I were able to catch up for over 2 hours without feeling like we were "hogging" a table. I highly recommend The Restaurant - very unique and great value!

Lots of breakfast choices. Cooks are a little impatient. Not too busy

Convenient and fast. This restaurant has HUGE portions (literally enough for 2, someimtes 3 meals). Prices are cheap, $8-$13 for a dinner entree. The staff is nice and the service is very quick because it's mostly served cafeteria-style. The atmopshere isn't fancy, but it's great for heart and quick meal and has quickly become a popular favorite for many Woburn locals.
