We ate here twice, breakfast one time and lunch the other. Portions were just right, food cooked as ordered. Service was good, but I would have liked coffee refills. Easy to get in and out quickly.

My husband is not from the New England area and wanted to eat somewhere that was a "typical" New England restaurant. 50-50 diner definitely fit the bill. Service was friendly and the food was good hearty fare.

Parkhill is our reliable local pizza shop and they do a great job staying in that lane. They know what they do best and don't try to mix it up.
