I always get the lobster roll. The lobster is ample and straight from a lobster, not canned or frozen. I have been here a number of times.

went here once-floor and tables were sticky and gross-staff and patrons stared at us like we had two heads so we left. I've heard it's ok, but the unfriendly vibe and the sticky floor and tables grossed me out

For us, it's local and it's convenient. It has a wide range of items on the menu but we stop in for sandwiches and not big meals. I love their tuna wrap and my husband's favorite is the turkey club. Their sweet potato fries are excellent and worth the added pennies over the regular fries. They have "activities" on certain... More

One of the interesting experiences is that this pub backs up to a rail track and we have seen a number of trains go by during our dining. My wife loves trains. The service is great, the people are friends

Typically when I see a restaurant parking lot filled with cars on a regular basis, it is a good indication that there is something popular and of quality inside. With this concept in mind my wife and I decided to try The Flat Penny for a quick dinner on a drizzly Friday evening. Located close to home, we have passed... More

A pretty average restaurant. Nothing special stands out in my experiences. Most of the time the food has been good (not great, not bad). Service has always been reliably okay; again nothing stands out one way or another. They don't do as good a job with take out as eat in.

The food here is good. The staff is friendly. Usually at the bar there is a lot of regulars which is always fun to listen to the buzz.

Never been disappointed by the food. Lunch options are a bit expensive. Would like to see more lunch specials and more healthy options. Service can be spotty.

The Flat Penny is really straight forward and does not try to be something it is not, which is perfect, because what it has is great. Simple food, well prepared and served by friendly people. The fish fry platter is very good as are the other 'comfort food' meals. You definitely want to stop in and try this place.
