Visit this bar about once or twice a year to enjoy reliable American cuisine. Penne Pasta with Sweet sausage was very good and wife had Eggplant Parm Platter, also enjoyable. Remodeled since our last visit and pleased with new ambiance. Wish was a little closer to home or we would go more often to this "Good Stop".

We eat here frequently and food is good. The renovations look updated and are nice. My only problem was the other evening a young lady was wiping down the table next to us. I noticed she wiped the many crumbs and pieces of food onto the seated bench. I figured she would then pick it up somehow. Instead she pushed... More

We would go here once every couple of weeks. Their burgers are best I have ever had. Always fresh and cooked as requested. The cole slaw is great and the iced tea is always fresh. We moved in April and so wish their was a Friends near us. We miss the great food!

Friends was already our favorite spot in Newtown and the renovations just make it that much better. The food is always consistently good and the beer selection is extensive. Their happy hour is still the best in town. Half price draught beers, wines and appetizers Monday through Friday from 4 to 6. The bartenders help make the atmosphere, they are... More

We came here for lunch. We have been here before so it was nice to see the renovations going on. The food was great as always but the service was a bit slow today. I'm guessing it was because there were very few customers. My guess is the server was relatively new. Anyway the food will keep bringing us back.... More

The service was very good. The server was pleasant and helpful. I had Terrapin Recreation Ale, very good. I had a delicious Turkey Burger and my husband had tasty fish tacos. We would go again.

Went here on a Saturday night as a group of 6. We have been here before, but are not "regulars", so we went around 530 for dinner. The hostess was very nice and showed us a corner booth with a really small table, there was no way 6 people could eat dinner on it. There was an available table for... More
