We stopped here after a day at the beach. It was really well priced. We had sandwiches - a Reuben, a club, grilled ham and cheese, and philly cheese steak. All were delicious. And the service was very quick! Will be stopping here again.

We stopped along 127 on our way up north. It seems a little out of the way but it’s totally worth it. The place is really clean and you can tell it’s frequented by a lot of locals. Our waitress was awesome. Definitely recommend!
