Basically the food was average, but the service was poor! We asked for several things and were told they were out. It took us over 30 minutes to get our drinks and another for food! Only one server. Not going back!!!

Stopped in here for a quick bite during my travels. I got the club sandwich and coleslaw with a Pepsi. The sandwich was huge and could probably be shared between two average appetites. The coleslaw was fresh and seemed to be homemade. Service was fast...More

Amherst is a small town with a great restaurant. The term fine food definitely applies here. Don't miss the Crab Dip appetizer. I strongly recommend this place to everyone.

Years ago we were regulars at Traverl's but the quality decline and so did our visits. Gave them another chance a month or so ago and the food quality is much improved. Ribeye is my favorite. Wife has enjoyed the stuffed peppers and steak salad.....More

Stopped by here with a couple of friends for lunch and found this place quite enjoyable. The service was quick, the food tasty for a small town restaurant. Parking is on the street.
