This is an old school place for sure. I've been coming here for 20+ years, and not much has changed. It's a great place to go if you're in Fair Haven and looking for a solid meal. There's nothing fancy about the menu. Stick to the basics (or even better, stick to breakfast), and you'll be happy with your meal. I am an out-of-towner, and this is a great place to go if you want to get a more local, authentic experience. Also want to note that they do accept cards now, but there is a fee added (I believe 2.75%).
Fantastic old-school diner (read: dive) serving traditional heart-stopping breakfast and lunch classics! Staffed by friendly local residents who speak English as their first language LOL. Extremely reasonable prices at the Wooden Soldier, my breakfast special was a large egg-sausage-cheese sandwich on an English muffin, a generous side of home fries and coffee, all for less than five bucks. And those home fries were made on the flattop the slow way, not dumped in the deep fryer quickly. The Formica counter and red leather stools are straight from 1950! It's like stepping back in time here. Even the pressed tin ceiling is still there. But if all you can see are the cracked tile floors and the industrial fluorescent light fixtures, then this isn't the place for you. :-) Just like 1950 they only take cash.
This is a greasy spoon but if you aren't into thy style the service and food is completely awesome and will have you coming back. As a coffee fan one of their nice touches is having a coffee serviette at the table so your not sitting there and waiting for a top up.

Pretty cool dive bar with a picture of Bukowski on the wall, so you know they're legit. Decent food, better vibe.

We love this place, good food, friendly staff, always leave happy and satisfied.
Shame on anyone who bashes this gem. This place is like an Oasis - there is nothing else around there!! Prime rib, chicken parmesan, calamari - all good and a decent, affordable wine list. This place is better than anything in Rutland - trust me. And Apu - It's not overpriced
See my original review. This is one of my all time favorite dining places. Michaela, the hostess owner is irresistably lovely and the entire wait staff offers seamless excellence in service. We were attended to by 3 servers, all who were pleasant ly professional, catering to our every whim. My recent visit last week was outstanding and as delicious, as ever. Got there before 6 PM so 2 of us ordered from the Prudential Menu, which is a total bargain offering many entrees priced around $12.00. Our filet mignon was gently resting under a demi-glace sauce that was rich and robust, with bleu cheese crumbled atop. The prime beef? Prepared to absolute perfection [I ordered it rare] and without a doubt was the most tender, butter soft meat I can ever recall. My brother ordered a steak off the elaborate steak menu and was equally pleased with it. Wines? Fine! The Greek salad? Not to miss. Our appetizers: Clams succulent and flavorful; I have to have the calamari and oh the escargot??? Will not miss them the next time I visit, which will surely be in just a few more weeks. I ended the event with a flourless chocolate cake and took most of it home. Heavenly in Vermont, that's what I call this fine restaurant. Have yet to experience a moment of disappointment. Warm fire, sparkling lights make it festive. Glad always to be there. Total bill for 3 of us, drinks, desserts, appetizers, entrees was under $120.00. Unbeatable!

Well, this is a McDonalds, so you know exactly what to expect from the food. The reason for this review is that the staff here is exceptionally friendly, almost always recognizing locals. And they give discounted organic coffee to seniors. It's a real meeting place for locals, especially senior citizens in the late mornings.
