Do you want a hamburger or pasta or a pizza or...we'll, just about anything this is you feel like, this is a homey restaurant. The owner is Sal, his Dad owned it before him...the bar has an extensive list of choices too. Sit in a booth, table or by the fireplace. They gave a room for parties too.

Valentine's Day. Made reservations for 2 @ 3:45 PM for dinner. Reservation was made for 6:30 PM. At 5:45 PM I get a call from "Lou" of the restaurant. He states there was a "mistake".

This is a nice family restaurant with good food. The help are attentive. The bar attracts locals during the evening, but it does not interfere with the dining area. It has been in business at this location for many years.

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, well managed, they had one girl walking thru the dining room to check tables while the waitress was busy elsewhere. Food was very good, excellent house salad dressing!

This place is good for traditional fare. There are booths in the front near the bar which can get noisy. If you want a quieter atmosphere ask to be seated in the back. Pasta dishes are always good. We just wish they had more vegetarian options on the menu.

Found this place on TA while staying in the resort area of Vernon. So glad we did. Never would have found it otherwise - off the beaten path a bit. Staff were great, food was very good from pizza to stuffed chicken with shrimp sauce ( went with the whole family ). Prices were very reasonable. Booths are fun but... More

Sal has been doing such a great job at this place for so many years, and his father before him, as well!! We LOVE the LAMPOST and dine here at least one or twice a month. Tuesday Wing night is awesome and any night's specials are always a treat! Great family place to grab lunch, dinner, a bite and a... More
