Very good food and very reasonable prices. The Men's room has a picture of Roger Goodell, The yankee logo, and the Montreal Canadiens log in the urinals. Check it out. Good for boaters.

As one proceeds northward from Boston along route 1A, one eventually enters the city of Lynn and experiences the iconic Lynnway. This stretch of 1A offers strip shopping centers and dealerships for every automobile short of an Edsel. It's easy to remember the age-old poem:...More
