A friend and I had lunch here on a Thursday. We often meet half way in Putnam and like to try different places. I had the pastrami special for $9. it was very good. I was offered the choice of their soup of the day instead of fries and chose the soup. It was sort of a beef vegetable soup with beans. It was delicious, thick , plenty of tender beef. Great choice. My friend who loves a good hamburger every so often ordered a 1/4 pound cheeseburger from the senior menu because the regular ones were 1/2 pound which she thought was too big. She said it was just OK.The fries were nothing special. We split a piece of chocolate cream pie which was a good size. However it was terrible, from the chocolate to the crust to the whipped cream. Tea was fine and we were offered hot water after we had finished our first cups which was nice. Our waiter was pleasant but we no sooner sat down when he asked us for our order. We had not even had time to open the menu. Then he came back again before we were ready.We were able to linger without pressure. All in all our experience was just average.

Still one of the better restaurants in Putnam. Great food and service. They re-modeled and moved "up-scale" which I kind of hate but I guess this happens a lot in an artsy town like Putnam. Food is very good, service is excellant. A bit pricey on the drink side.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this place as we found the food superb and the service impeccable. We had a grilled shrimp on skewers and a chicken bruchetta. Both were delicious. We topped it off with chocolate cream pie. The servings are very generous. We will definitely come back. It was a delightful dining experience.

Someplace Special isn't.
If you like Greek pizza, it's the best Greek Pizza in the area. Better atmosphere after remodel, but the food is the same....average. Drinks overpriced for 2nd rate well booze, no variety at the bar unless you just drink beer! Service is ok.
Much better options within walking distance!
