I went there with my family for a quick bite to eat over the weekend and that's exactly what we got. The food was above par pub food and the atmosphere was great, but we weren't blown away with it. I'll absolutely go there again, but it won't become a regular place. it's perfect for a quick bite at a... More

My wife and I went to your regularly over 10 years ago before we were married. She lived in Canton at the time. The food used to be exceptional and reasonable. The specials, the steamers, the steak tips. Then there was the service- team wait staff helping each other so much to the point that you didn't know who was... More

When I come into town I make it a point to visit restaurants I always frequented when I lived here. The Halfway is one of my favorites. Comfortable bar where I see regulars. Good food! Turkey Tips...to die for. Reasonably priced menu and drinks. The staff rocks and the atmosphere is warm and happy.

Excellent. I was expecting a cafe, however this is a bar with seating on the side for food. Excellent sirloin tips and vegetables! Another table got nachos and I've never seen a pile so high! It could be two dinners and included salsa and guacamole. Cider on tap was excellent too! It was a bit loud, but lots of TVs... More

Decided to try this swamp on a recommendation from the Phantom Gourmet - boy if this is what they consider fine at a reasonable price, hand me the barf bag! No thank you. Suggest you keep going south to Legacy Place - good selection there.

Took my wife out for a quick lunch after shopping the nearby malls - should have eaten at the many eateries in the mall instead. Our meals were best described as slop, not very well prepared, and while we were there for lunch and not expecting some fine dining - their prices were far from what we got for our... More

to being a great place to go regularly, as we used to do before they remodeled and changed their apparent goals from "good food cheap" to "good food moderately priced and lets get folks in and out of there in a hurry".
