The three of us arrived around 7:30pm for dinner on a Monday in October, the line wasn't too bad we waited for 5 minutes. Once at the table it took the waitress 15 minutes to come to take our order for drinks and food. We...More

Judie's is a distinctly unique restaurant; beautiful modern decor, colorful tables, displays of works by local artists and a good selection of very interesting food. The popovers are available as simple popovers served with apple butter or included in a range of dishes. Serving lunch...More

Very popular restaurant downtown Amherst with artistic and fun decor. Huge menu with many gluten free options. Efficient and friendly service. We had an alcove window seat that allowed for street walking and quieter conversation. Good value and very generous portions.

This was recommended to us for a nice casual dinner with a variety of menu items, which is definitely had; the popovers were delish, and popular place but not a long wait for a Saturday night. We enjoyed it. Casual and comfortable.

As a native to Amherst, I've been to this home of the popover several times unfortunately and never understand why it's well liked. It's like a mom and pop version of Applebee's or something. My daughter wanted to try it to celebrate after winning Grand...More
