Had an amazing lunch here on Friday, September 24, 2010. So much so that I had to mention it. It was really unexpected;being in such a rural location and finding good food!
Friday's they have clam chowder and this day they had lobster rolls, too!
My son's chicken and sausage with penne and red sauce (with mushrooms), was delicious and a huge portion. He paid a slight up-charge to get the chowder instead of regular soup or salad.
Service was a little slow, but it was a one-man (FOH) operation on that day at lunchtime. They had meatloaf on the menu! Sam Adams on tap. Comfortable, small dining-room and separate bar-dining area.
I highly recommend it for better than average food when you're out in the middle of nowhere...
PS: Highway 197 (Old Turnpike Road), is a nice, scenic, curvy fun drive if you want to get off I-84 for a while.
