About me

Sit Down Restaurants

They are the few and the proud. Mostly family owned and operated but may have one or two restaurants set up. These are the unique restaurants that dot our towns and cities. They do not deliver to your home and you may have to squeeze into a booth. We bring our out-of-town friends to these places for a great meal. These are the places my dad preferred and he could find each and every one of them on the North Shore.
