Looks like a rundown, needs updating, food was very average to bad, beer ok, service ok. Easy access when you shop in the Federal road area.

Our friends love this place, and we've joined them once before. It is close to the Lowes Cinema, so an easy place to eat in an hour before or after a movie. Their specialty is there beer list, all or mostly on tap. They offer a 5 ounce "taste" of every draft, so it is easy to have a couple... More

Food is very good. I always get a Monte Cristo sandwich and have never been disappointed. I moved from Danbury many years ago and always make time to stop at Widow Brown's!

We went there for lunch and enjoyed it thoroughly! The service was relaxed & exceptional. The Caprese salad with burrata cheese was delicious. The smoky chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries was huge & tasty! I will definitely go back!

Food was very good. Service was attentive and accommodating. It was busy, so it wasn't quiet, but the mood was upbeat and relaxing. We will definitely eat here again.

Service was horrible. Entrees delivered no silver ware. Asked for silver ware, after 10 minutes had to get up and get myself. Major snippy attitudes on part of servers. Need a reminder of who is the customer! Avoid.

I am sorry your service was so bad. What can I say except I hung up your review so our wait staff can see the complaint. Since I don't know exactly when you were in I don't know who to single out so I will be talking to each server. Thank you for your input and we will try to... More
