Spacious and plenty of tables at this rest stop. Decent food choices as well. Burger King, Popeyes, Carvel, Starbucks, a pizza joint (forgot which one) and a bakery. Big convenience store as well for road trip snacks. Bathrooms were cleaner than other rest stops I have been to. What a modern rest stop nowadays should be.

New, big, clean, and safe to be sure. When we first moved to the area we heard that it's one of the best of it's type. We've done a lot of road tripping over the years, and have visited quite a few Welcome Centers around the country. We actually drove over to see what was going on. Still waiting to... More

This place is pack with all kind of people trying to eat and use the bathroom to keep going on their trip. If you have to stretch, eat something quick and gas up this is the place. I felt very safe plus they have a big variety of places to eat from.

Clean, large, well laid out rest spot with many options to choose from. Great bathrooms. All you can want in a rest area. The Starbucks needs some help. The line was crazy long and the staff didn't make 2 of our 3 drinks correctly... having to remake... a frapachino and a latte. My frapachino was very good.

Stopped here to and from our trip through the New England states. Both times we selected the Brioche Doree for our lunch. The sandwiches consisted of a baguette with maybe one or two slices of meat and one slice of cheese...toasted or not. The price was 8.99 ore more. Cookies were 4-5 dollars for a dried out cookie. Will opt... More
