“Pass it!!!! Wave if you must as you go by!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

When we last took all our family there before the closing of Bliss', it was super! We just returned and it is now Jerri's. Without a doubt, this experience was one of the worst service/meals we have EVER had at a diner or restaurant. We watched three seperate tables get up and leave due to extremely slow /non-existent service. One table that was obviously tired of waiting, but still hanging in there, went up twice to the counter asking where their food was???? Then..a couple was served food and they arrived AFTER the couple who were waiting. I had three teens and three adults at our table, and we all had waited soooo long, we actually had the breakfast jelly pkts and soup crackers as our pre-meal snack. Now that is sad. The food, when it did arrive, was of mixed quality. Onion rings were awesome. Bacon on two different sandwiches was almost raw. Drinks and salads were very small in size, but tomato/cuke were very fresh. Hamb patty was burnt. Clam chowder should have been called brothy celery soup. Kids said fish fillets were "gummy" in the middle. Oh, and, did I mention the one customer who ordered a bacon cheeseburger and the burger came to him just a burger patty and bun. He complained and they left the plate in front of him and brought out a saucer with bacon and cheese. At this point, we remaining customers just all looked at each other and laughed. Were we getting pranked or something? Kinda wish it were that, cause it doesn't feel good getting a really bad deal.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

For starters, lady's room had no bath tissue or towels, men's room had no towels. Lots of flies in the dining room. The hostess was actually using a tennis racket size bug zapper to get them.

Meat serving size was OK on the 1/2 pound jalapeno burger I tried--but I threw half the bun away since it was at least 3 inches wider than the patty. I had to dismantle the sandwich and eat it with knife and fork. Jalapenos weren't spicy at all, and the patty itself had very little flavor. The reuben was skimpy on meat.

As for side dishes, battered potato rounds weren't hot when served at the table, and didn't have much flavor. Onion rinks were OK.

Lunch came to $21 before tip (we had water to drink). Strictly a tourist place. Might be good to visit for a shake or something like that (at $4 a pop).

“Could have been a neat place, but unimpressed.”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Came in here on Tuesday evening of Fourth of July week. First thing the server says is "we close in 10 minutes" What? Close at 7pm? We asked if we needed to go to anotherplace or if she would recommend one. She said, no, just stay here but we would be her LAST customers. "She's been there all day. By herself". In between the time she brings our drinks and takes our orders, not less than SIX other couples or families comein. She seats them all, but doesn't give them the spill about closing, etc. But I do believe she is the only server there. She may have been the cook as well. Poor thing. To the food. Seems my husband's burger was gristly, just poor quality beef. My BLT was o.k., but seemed the bread may have been grilled on day old grease. The decor was nifty with lots of pictures of old cars and antiques. Could have been an opportunity to have had a great meal. But not this time. Maybe just a bad day.

“Tasty Stop”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Iconic restaurant on route 101 in the heart of Florence. Really unique, fun place. The service is top notch and they are very kind. The fun vintage cars bring such a cheerful excitement to this place. Inside there are hundreds of photographs of vintage cars and a full size hot rod that's been turned into a table. The kids go wild.

The menu has many classic choices. You have to try the butterscotch shake.

Truly is a must stop and you can't miss it. Under new ownership.
