For many years, Judie's is an institution in downtown Amherst. Always busy, it is worth the wait. The food is delicious and the variety of dishes is great

The food here is outstanding. Wide selection, well-prepared and perfectly served. We have been coming to Judie's since its inception, almost 30 years ago. The Drunken Scallops are the best dish on the menu.

No, and it can get very crowded especially around commencements and during leaf peeping.
