This freestanding, family-friendly restaurant is convenient both to downtown and the interstate. A half-wall topped with a brass railing separates the dining room's two tiers. The food is good, simple New England fare, with seafood, steaks, chops and chicken prepared broiled, baked, grilled or fried. To answer an often-asked question: Strawberry shortcake is made with real biscuits. This place is popular, and waits are common during peak times.
