My family and I have frequented this restaurant for many years. Although it has been some time since my last visit they did not disappoint. The menu has an eclectic selection of food and drinks. I went with the Souper which is an excellent choice...More

Visiting Amherst from Delaware, Judie’s was recommended by my son who is a student at UMass. The interior is very inviting: a bright area divided into smaller rooms, yet it appears open. Most likely walls were broken and replaced with white pillars for supports. Small...More
