This is friendly place with home-cooked feel to the overall atmosphere and the the food. If it wasn't for New England weather we could sit outside here all year!!! It's great. And affordable.

It depends on the level of handicap, if a person is walking with a walker, then you will be fine. If a person uses a wheelchair this location may not be the best. The bathrooms may also be a challenge for wheelchair/scooter... More
