Stone Haus Pizzeria & Creamery Excellent calzone! The pastry is really nice.
Cloud Dine Good flatbread pizzas and huge salads
Cafe Zupas Hit some New England Clam Chowder up! No mix-in needed.
Dasks Careful -- they use so much oil! Jim and I are stained
Bandits' American Grill My husband gives Bandits a 6/10 & says the BBQ is nothing special & the chicken was a little dry. I liked the Caesar salad & french fries!
