This place is a nice reminder of what restaurants were before big box chain restaurants serving fake food with little nutritional value took hold.

I stopped at this small family style, pub-restaurant yesterday for lunch. There were 3 in our party. We noticed an event taking place, maybe a wedding party, in the function room.

With the various lunch specials for $10.98, came an all you can eat soup and bread bar. This is HOMEMADE, soup as if grandma was in the back kitchen all day making it. There were 2 choices a delicious garden vegetable and a chicken soup. YUM can taste the home-cooking and the fresh veggies. You cut the fresh French bread yourself.

The portions were HUGE. I ordered the fish & chips. I asked and the waitress and she said they use vegetable oil not the cheeper lard, but the batter held a bit more oil then other fish coatings. The fish itself was huge and very fresh, perfectly cooked.

My sister had the beef tips over a huge pile of mashed potatoes. She loved it.

The bottom line. It's not a fast food cheap place. But that's it's value. It serves real home-cooked food in a friendly atmosphere.

When you are on Rt. 44 bypass all of those chain restaurants that we are all routinely go to out of familiarity and ease, and head to this place.

We visited this place with alot of family members. It was a large group and the restaurant handled the task very well. The staff came to the table frequently and that's important to a big group, someone always needs something. It was actually Valentines day and they were busy to begin with. There was entertainment in one room and a nice fireplace in the other.
The food was delicious and nice portions. We will go back again to celebrate other occasions, I'm sure.
