We popped in for a quick lunch while travelling and found a restaurant that had come straight out of the 1950s as far as the decor was concerned but it was ok. The service was friendly and the food good.

Went there for the entertainment but decided to have diner as well and we were very pleased with our meals. Waitstaff was very accommodating.

I had not eaten there in a long time. I thought I would try it and was sorry I did. The food was okay and the service was terrible.

We have been going to this place for many, many years. Meals were always very good. We like that before dinner they pass around appertizers for free--like corn fritters, small meatballs, pop overs, and other small foods. The decor is excellent. Service is always top...More

They will have their usual Turkey dinner on the early bird menu on Wed. It is turkey, stuffing, potato, salad or soup and dessert - a good meal. I believe the special will go until 6:30 pm but you should call them to make... More

Sorry, I am not sure. I went to their website and did not see a specific GF menu posted there. I would suggest calling to ask.

Even though their website shows open Sunday at noon, considering the Holiday you would be best to contact them at: (781) 233-2587
