My friend and I went to dinner and were thoroughly impressed with the meal. The fish was juicy and delicious. The Shrimp Pad Thai was excellent. Definitely would recommend.

We met with some friends in the Halfway Inn for dinner and were pleasantly surprised, the food is tasty, spiced right for all palates (they ask you) and of first rate quality.
And the Halfway has an other quality, it is not a place for cheap thrill tourists, most people in the place are long time expat residents embedded in Thai culture. A true melting pot.
We thank you Nan and Dave!
