My daughter and I had a very good dining experience at Rosebud. We ordered a jalapeno cheddar burger and the "Texas Rachel in a skirt." Both were cooked to perfection and we received excellent service. Prices are reasonable, especially for this area of town.

A converted “Worcester Lunch Car” diner, with a large outdoor patio and bar, with an interesting food and cocktail menu. Great service. Wonderful, homemade pies aren’t to missed.

Excellent quality food, drinks, service and atmosphere. Eggs Florentine Benny were cooked to perfection accompanied by a lightly dressed arugula and lightly seasoned potatoes. I’ll be back!

The Rosebud has a cool atmosphere, and a good drink menu- but the fun ends there. We waited for over an hour for our table, which to be fair, we were told the wait would be an hour. I eagerly ordered Eggs Benedict with Brisket....More

Agreed. You can find a free lot to the right on a side street, but be sure to read the signage very carefully. Other options are to drop off your party and slowly make your way around the blocks. There is metered parking... More
