Family Dining. huge wrap around bar, or tavern style! Many tv's to watch the games, and great service. Food was mediocre, but atmosphere was perfect.

Very good service and very good food. Atmosphere is causally comfortable and service was perfectly timed. The food is seasoned nicely and excellent proportions. Always a solid winner here.

Stopped here today for a late lunch. Greeted cheerfully at door and shown to table. Our server came over promptly. We ordered the chicken and biscuits and fried haddock. Both dishes were very good. Fresh, good flavor, nice portion size. I always thought this place was more about drinking and not the food. I was pleasantly surprised today. It's good!

I liked the chicken Oscar which had crabmeat on top of the boneless chicken breasts. I was hoping that the crabmeat would not have any breading. It was good but just wanting pure lump crabmeat. Asparagus done to perfection. People at my table loved the French onion soup.

We have been by Hafner's many times and finally we had time to stop. The Calamari is very good. I had the Prime Rib (which was very god) My wife had stuffed shrimp. The shrimp were stuffed and wrapped in bacon. Both were very good and we will be back. I liked the rustic look of this place.

A party of six on a busy weekday night, we chose Hafner's because visiting boating friends wanted "a not fancy local spot." Good choice. We thought we were in for a long wait based on the parking lot, but were promptly seated at a large round table. After a drink, we ordered three sandwiches and three more formal meals. Everyone...
