The names of the sandwiches on the blackboard have become a trivia quiz: since they haven't been changed for decades many of the younger customers have no idea who they're named after. Still, they remind us of a time when the Williamstown theater was the...More

I'm a Williams alum and have been coming here for decades. It's a great sandwich place! I was just there. My sandwich was good and the staff were quite pleasant. I look forward to returning.
