Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Never go away hungry, for sure! A lunch with old friends or an amiable dinner with another couple... always a good experience.

Service was really good. Owner is visible and very accommodating. The food is delicious and reasonably priced given the extra large portions. Atmosphere is filled with lots of repeat customers due to the quality of food. It can be rather loud if you are dining on a Friday night when they have live music. If you are looking for a... More

I have dined at dozens of restaurants over the years and this was this first time anyone has shaken my hand, very impressed. Service was excellent. We started out with muscles in a white... More

All of the food on their menu is top notch. I have had everything from their burgers, pasta and steak and was very pleased with all. The portions are very generous as well.

Rock solid option right on route 190 in Stafford. Very good menu, lots of choice of the basics, plus always several interesting specials. Last night, we had cod baked in their own clam chowder. Sounds a little odd, but it was great! $15. Nice salad included, large portion, hot and fresh. We really like it here and we're never disappointed.

The bread, the salad and the Basil's chicken supreme were superior. We had travelled to Boston and back today but came here for dinner.

Good selection of food on the menu and one of the only decent non-chain restaurant around for miles. Every one seems to know everyone.

The food is good and a nice atmosphere. Bar available. Heard there is music night--not sure. There is a new party room, too.
