This was an awful experience. The fries which were crispy with oil and over-frying, cost at added $3+ and were NOT worth it. The bun was waaay bigger than the burger which was not great. The chicken was old--too rubbery. I couldn't cut it with the butter knife I was given and was given a dirty look by the waitress... More

Stopped here on my way down to Torrington and had a great conversation with one of the owners. We had a nice talk about politics and local economy and her egg farm up the road. Got my meal in decent time and it was good washed down with my coke. It's a nice building with lots of character and has... More

The staff was very charming and efficient. The food was well prepared and the portions were very large. The prices were very reasonable. I can recommend this restaurant very highly if you are in the Otis Ma. area. The wait staff was especially child friendly and the restaurant has a quaint old fashioned decor. Only open for Breakfast and Lunch... More

I was with friends, we stopped here for breakfast. What a wonderful surprise. Lots of antique stoves, articles, such cute things surround this interior restaurant. The food was yummy, and I loved the bisquits!

In an area with very few places to eat, the diner offers a very pleasant somewhat varied menu with a good selection of breakfasts and nice specials. If you want a down-to-earth breakfast or lunch and want to sit for a few minutes and relax, the diner is a fine choice.

I'm not one to write long reviews but sit down and let me tell you ladies and gentlemen a sad, sad story. Yikes was this place an absolute disaster. Approximately 9 am on July 3rd some pals and I decide to check out the local diner. We get there and it took them 20 minutes to sit us, 15 minutes... More

We did breakfast here twice during a weekend visit to Otis, MA. Food was delicious, simple, home cooked. They had gluten free options, which was great - not sure if they are celiac friendly, but had GF bread, pancakes, and waffles. Service was excellent and the food was affordable. It did get a little busy, and there was a short... More

This place has all the makings of a great country diner: rural ambience, great food, reasonable prices. But food alone doesn't cut it. For starters, on the Saturday morning we visited, the place was a mess: several tables weren't bussed. The waitress was slow and surly, and had to be asked for a coffee refill, which violates the first commandment... More
