Local place that has been around for decades. The food is good, not great, but it's the kind of food you got at home when you were young. Generous portions, and a menu that changes daily with the specials. Items such as meat loaf or open-face roast beef sandwich are always popular. My wife goes for bowls of clam chowder... More

The service was good - not awesome, but good. The food was okay. We ordered the breakfast special. It was good, not great. Mine was a bit cold, but overall a pretty good place for breakfast

As it was a bitter cold day, there were only a few people in the restaurant; which is very unusual. The establishment is a classic which... More

They advertise award winning chowder,,,i can tell u it is crude and expensive. When you make a complaint they do not want to hear it. do your self a favor and... More

I have only been here in the mornings, but their lunch/dinner menu looks great as well. The breakfast and service was prompt and great! A special place for the young and old to gather and enjoy each others company.

I love that these guys have a consistent menu every year. For our small family we don't cook a turkey but we love coming here once a year to get turkey dinner for one of the holidays. Consistent Good food, good service just go early if you want a seat.

Esquire Restaurant has been in Bedford for a very long time indeed. It never ceases to amaze me at the amount of folks eating there at any given time. The quality is consistently good. The prices are entirely reasonable and the service is fast and always polite. Long time staff make for a comfortable eating experience. Great for families but... More
