My wife and I went to your regularly over 10 years ago before we were married. She lived in Canton at the time. The food used to be exceptional and reasonable. The specials, the steamers, the steak tips. Then there was the service- team wait staff helping each other so much to the point that you didn't know who was... More

When I come into town I make it a point to visit restaurants I always frequented when I lived here. The Halfway is one of my favorites. Comfortable bar where I see regulars. Good food! Turkey Tips...to die for. Reasonably priced menu and drinks. The staff rocks and the atmosphere is warm and happy.

Excellent. I was expecting a cafe, however this is a bar with seating on the side for food. Excellent sirloin tips and vegetables! Another table got nachos and I've never seen a pile so high! It could be two dinners and included salsa and guacamole. Cider on tap was excellent too! It was a bit loud, but lots of TVs... More

We split a order of Onion Rings, cut thin, just the right amount of batter and cooked with fresh oil, delicious. My new #2 place for a Roast Beef Sandwich. The... More

Decided to try this swamp on a recommendation from the Phantom Gourmet - boy if this is what they consider fine at a reasonable price, hand me the barf bag! No thank you. Suggest you keep going south to Legacy Place - good selection there.

Took my wife out for a quick lunch after shopping the nearby malls - should have eaten at the many eateries in the mall instead. Our meals were best described as slop, not very well prepared, and while we were there for lunch and not expecting some fine dining - their prices were far from what we got for our... More

to being a great place to go regularly, as we used to do before they remodeled and changed their apparent goals from "good food cheap" to "good food moderately priced and lets get folks in and out of there in a hurry". Remodel a year or so ago changed most of the booths and tables to high tops with barstools... More

This is one of the place that open late in Dedham! Always has great uplifting and local vibe! Food is so so but it has welcoming feel to it. Everyone seems to be repeaters!
