Love the burgers that you build your own, fish and chips are great, and the bar scene is nice and casual raucous and good beers on tap!. Small quaint... More

Whenever in Boston area visiting grandkids, we always pick an evening for dinner at the Halfway Cafe in Marlborough -- outstanding boneless chicken wings and huge portions of fries with lots of dipping sauces to choose from -- beer menu just doesn't end -- parking real easy right out fron -- popcorn snack while you wait

First, we never got our appetizer brought out. Then my cheeseburger in a lettuce wrap was a burger on top of a pile of shredded lettuce. I really wanted the lettuce wrap, and we really did want our appetizer! All that aside, the kids enjoyed their meals which were Kids Grilled Cheese (hard to mess up), Mac & Cheese (disappointed...

We were staying at the Fairfield Inn down the road and were recommended this restaurant by the front desk. It was good casual place for a quick dinner. We had sandwiches and burgers which were very good. Good service.

I've been here many times as I live close by. I've never had a bad experience. The food is really good, the service is fast and friendly, and it is really inexpensive.

I have been twice in the last two months, both times for lunch. I happen to like diners and booths. I had a very good roast beef sandwich which was a meal in itself. French fries came with the dish.
