When you have a name like the "Route 20 Bar", thoughts of burgers and fries...done only tolerably well...come to mind. Forget that notion when you come here. Prepare for a surprise Friday night is their fish fry, and you can choose from four different varieties....More

There is nothing special about this place. A typical bar and grill. There is a nice big room for receptions and gatherings but it gets pretty loud when it's being used for normal seating.

All you can eat boasted chicken hot, crispy, and juicy. 5$ house drinks tasty and refreshing. Hostess courteous and attentive, even late in the evening. Kitchen closes at 9 on Sundays.
