Good comfort food and consistant in quality! Great deserts. Breakfast gets busy as the locals know a good place and they're constant customers.

Great spot for a big lunch, or breakfast. Had the fried Atlantic cod, and seconds were free, so shared a second big juicy cut of fish, with extra slaw and soda. I highly recommend here.

The food here is always good. Never had a complaint and the specials change daily. Breakfast is awesome and some of the lunch selections are pretty good as well. A sure recommendation to eat here.

This is one of the best family restaurants in the Waterford, CT area. The food is prepared to order so there is a little wait - but it's fresh and worth it. Their pies are home-made and delicious.
