Passing thru and had lunch with old friends. This is a new place in Sudbury. Very good menu. Had clam chowder and a salad. Friends had large meals and all of us were pleased. Will eat here again when in Sudbury.

We have been here 3 times in the last few weeks since this restaurant opened in Sudbury. Very nice inside since it is new and has outdoor seating as well as lots of parking. Food is just average and cocktails are a little skimpy. I...More
