We liked this place and it was open when we would get into town for dinner on Mondays. It had a historic back bar and a shuffle board game. And decent affordable food. But the story is that the cook disappeared on New Years Day...More

I enjoy having happy hour cocktails and finger food from the tavern. Although a little pricey for Chester, the quality of the food and wine selection make it worth it!

Good food, nice atmosphere. Lots of Dave Brubeck memorabilia and WW11 aviation. Has a bar and dining area. Walking distance from Best Western.

The bartender was busy playing dice games with her regulars and there didn't seem to be enough staff to handle summer "rush" of diners but the food was fine and drinks cheap.

Excellent food at reasonable prices, good drinks, service was helpful. We had a problem with an entree that we thought was not described accurately in the menu (or the chef cooked something different from what we thought we ordered). Waitress took care of the problem.

Food was average. Onion rings were great, but portion is a bit small for the pasta. The decoration is one of the thing i liked most about this place.

The food was good, and hot. The atmosphere is friendly and casual. The music by Dave Brubeck, and the connection to Brubeck was special. The blackberry cobbler was great, as well as the service by Jessie.

We had dinner here based on a local recommendation. The bacon wrapped jalepenos were very good. My husband had the chicken "burger" with fries. The sandwich was nothing special, but good. The fries were better, being homemade. I had the soup and salad combo. The...More
