Dine here once and you’ll undoubtedly become a regular. The reasons are simple—the food tastes great; pretty, young, high-energy servers provide excellent service and the atmosphere is upbeat and friendly. Plus, the retro decor, which is fashioned after a 1940’s railroad dining car, is sparkling new looking and stylish. Accents like movie studio light stands and comfortable booths make it easy to fall in love with this place. The dining selections are almost endless. These include eggs Benedict, eggs any way you like ’em and five big omelets.
Lunch selections include six big burgers and 18 sandwiches like the open-faced turkey sandwich served with mashed potatoes and vegetables. When dinner rolls around, you’ll be equally challenged with the many selections. Favorite entrées include East Coast lobster rolls, clam rolls, New England clam chowder and chicken noodle soup or “Jewish penicillin.” Plus, their clams are flown in from Boston several days a week. Then there’s a delicious chicken pot pie served with mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables. Their desserts are no less spectacular! Beer and wine. Credit cards: AE, DISC, MC, VISA.
