Diner food with an interesting menu. Large portions. Great Philly Steak & Cheese. Surprisingly wide gluten free options. Good American style with a bit too much salt. Wonderful firehouse memorabilia. If you are in Barre, it is worth at least one visit.

We went the other night before attending a show at the Barre Opera House. Fortunate, we got there early, which the place filled up quickly after we arrived. I guess they take reservations, but only on parties of 6 or more. The food was good,...More
