We frequently choose to take out of town guests here and have never been disappointed. Service not spectacular but tends to be busy there.

Have eaten at this cozy old style restaurant many times and the food and service are always good. Great selection of beers and wines and food all at very reasonable prices. The fresh battered fried shrimp appetizer is the best around and the fried fisherman platter rivals any shoreline restaurant.

When the family is in town we usually go there for at least a meal or two. The food is always good and reasonably priced. The service is also good.

We dine here frequently because we like the food and the old-fashioned atmosphere! The Prime Rib Roast Beef, which is often available on Saturdays, is my husband's favorite. The freshly made apple pie is pretty darn good too and is made by Auggie. Yes, the service can be spotty, but if you are lucky, Beverly will wait on you and... More

We have dined there twice, both times with a group of friends, otherwise there would not have been a second time. The food wasn't bad, just indifferent. The bread, on our first visit, was delicious, from a local bakery...but when we asked if it could be warmed, we were told they couldn't warm bread. The service on both occasions was... More

Went there for a late lunch. I planned to just grab a burger (which I did in a way) and my wife was thinking of a basic salad. In addition to good variety of lunches, etc. on the regular menu, there was a wide variety of lunch specials. We each had a special. I chose a burger, but it wasn't... More

Old School Family Restaurant. Good place to take grandparents to. Not overly big portions, reasonable prices, appropriate music. Good prices on beer and wine. The place is old, and very dark. I have grown fond of their atmosphere, because it hasn't changed. I like the sandwiches more than the entrees, although I did have some seafood manicotti that was very... More

The waitress was very friendly and took her time to explain the history of Fernwood. The service was top-notch and quality of food was excellent. I would return here with my next visit.
