My son brought me here on a couple of occasions and I enjoyed it immensely. The turkey Pop pie which they are famous for is big enough for two meals and is delicious. I had that on both occasions since it was so good. The staff is all super friendly, there is artwork hanging on the walls for sale and... More

The food is very tasty and you get plenty. The service is excellent. We loved the bean dip appetizer and mentioned to our... More

Started going 35 years ago for a first time bridesmaid luncheon for a friend's daughter. Have enjoyed many luncheons, especially the souper. Do not think you can find a more congenial atmosphere or better choice of food......looking forward to my next visit.

We visited Judie's for a dinner after many people recommended it. Parking was hard to find, but we parked in the back and walked through the restaurant to the hostess. The host and hostess were a little rude when we requested that our toddler have a highchair and be placed between 2 adults in our party of 4 (either on... More

The popovers are famous for a reason! The poppy seed dressing is wonderful. A varied menu that will have something for everyone. It is an Amherst institution.

We always eat here when visiting our son at Amherst College. They have an insanely wide array of choices and everything is freshly made and delicious! It tends to get crowded on the weekends, so plan to wait-but well woth it!!

Called a few days ago to see if Judie's could handle a big group for a 90th birthday celebration. We ended up with 24 people, and the service and food were both terrific. We are grateful for such a good dining experience without a whole lot of notice. Great work!
