Friendly service in an old cozy restaurant/bar. On our first visit, we absolutely loved the fish and chips--portion was big enough to share. Our waitress was friendly but professional. A computer problem delayed our bill, but free desserts eased our impatience. Two days later we returned with friends living nearby. Three of us had pizza and one the fish. Our... More

read the review and thought we would try a new restaurant. Food was good, salad greens were wilted, although prices were reasonable. The menus could use a good wipe down with water and a clean cloth, as well as some of the memorabilia on the walls (especially the pictures). The restaurant wasn't busy when we visited, but the wait staff... More

Characters is located in an older building which at the turn of the last century was also a hotel. The menu, while large, consists mostly of familiar American dishes. There are also approximately 6 Irish dishes as well as a pizza selection. The atmosphere is homey and most likely has not been updated for decades. The customers appear to be... More

We stopped here for dinner on a Friday evening on our way home from apple picking in Warwick. We were seated promptly at a comfortable table. The dining room is slightly dark but cozy. The service was attentive and friendly, and we did not have to wait long for our appetizer nor our entrees. When we emptied our bread basket,... More

Has both lively bar and nice casual dining room. Large variety of food ranging from pub fare to Italian. Stopped by on a busy Sunday night and still got great service - very friendly waitstaff. Chicken francese and chicken pot pie were both good. Prices on kids meals and side dishes were very reasonable. Nice dependable stop in this area.

We live only about 10 minute drive from here but have never ventured in to try it. Read some reviews here and heard from friends and decided we should give it a go. We were definitely not disappointed. Somewhat local but also very comfortable. Went for dinner on a Saturday evening and it was not packed but, quite a few... More
