This restaurant has a rude no class Cook who doesn't know what is going on. I would not eat here if they paid me to. Only take cash also. They can't get an order right if there life depending on it.

Quaint little place. Very good food and pleasant staff. Brought back memories. I remember when the diner was on Main Street 50+ years ago. One of the few places where I can find whole belly clams and they are great.
