We visited one afternoon because the wait at The Old Mill up the street was 1.5 hrs. (beautiful fall day with Apple Fest going on at Wachusett Mountain). It was very quiet at 2:30 pm on a Saturday. We ordered a Caesar salad and a small pizza. Both were very good; salad fresh and the sauce on the pizza was... More

While most people think this is a pizza place they have an extensive dining room with Incredible entrees I had a dish there with fresh Lobster that was absolutely phenomenal worthy of a five star restaurant so don't think this is just a place to grab a great pizza while you can do that you can sit in the back...

Its been a while since I went there . I ordered a hamburg pizza and when I got home this pizza looked like it was reheated from the day before. I ride by alot and not much going on for a thriving resturant, which its not.

This may be a restaurant the one drives by without noticing it, but it's a must to stop by! The outside of the restaurant isn't fancy and inside looks more like a "House of Pizza," but the food is amazing! We were a party of three, who ordered different things on the menu: spaghetti with meatballs, lasagna with meat sauce,... More

A spur of the moment decision to eat there as we've gone by it many times. While it's not much to look at, we have no complaints. The dining room might be small, but it's clean,and the waitress was very personable. The portions were more than enough & the lasagna was very good, the chicken parm was good too. The... More

This place is terrible from the time you enter, until the time you leave. The food was bland, the atmosphere was horrible, the service was the worst. I have nothing good to say about this place. It was like eating at a yard sale. They sell beer but only to take home, you cannot consume alcohol with your meal, but... More

This is a quiet little restuarant in West Fitchburg were we eat on a semi routine basis. The quality and value are hard to beat. The home made chicken soup is outstanding. Portion size is generous.

This place is a 'well-kept-secret'. Very good food, affordably priced. 'Soup-of-the-Day' seems to always be chicken- but this stuff is best in area ! Waite staff is pleaseant and John (the owner) takes time to come to your table and spend some time visiting. -Feel at home, from first visit ! (maybe not so fancy, but definitely a place to... More

We stopped here after hiking Mount Monadnock. I picked it based on location and the Yelp ratings. The service was very good - the server really cared and tried to make sure we had a good experience. The food was pretty good - I had the ravioli and my partner had the lemon pepper seafood special. So why the 'but'...... More
