Usually a good stop in Lynn. This place is a local favorite, and overlooks Sluice pond which is quite beautiful. I've only come here for breakfast. They have some of my favorite hash brown's, and offer generous portions. Of course, bottomless coffee as well (and it is good). Also helps that the staff here are pleasant to the customers.

I recently dined here. And I made it clear to the waitress that I wanted my fish plate served without breadcrumbs. Or butter. She repeated back to me "so you want it naked " I said yes. The meal arrived with a ridiculous amount of breadcrumbs and butter. I sent it back. So they could get the order right. Instead... More

Well, this family run place is decent enough for Lynn. Patronized mostly by local residents. I go for the view of sluice pond and the sloping floor which adds to the atmosphere. Best bet- the daily specials.

I've never had a bad meal here; we often go here to eat. Hayward's is a great place to bring others, as there is an option for whatever someone prefers, from our experience. Right on Sluice Pond, providing a beautiful view of the water!

This is a cozy restaurant, very small, but they have good food. They always accommodate a group of 6-8 of us and make the meal a joy.

Was nearby, and I had heard pleasant things about it, but wasn't thrilled after my visit. The high spots were the Greek items on the menu, fresh vegetables, and desserts.

This is one of the few waterview restaurants in the area so we parked out front and decided to give it a try. We weren't greeted at the door although the owner and about 6 people were sitting at the first tables. We walked in and sat ourselves with a view of the pond. I noticed the booth across from...
