The Palmer exit off the Mass Pike is a halfway meeting point for my family next week. Anybody know anywhere decent to grab a quick dinner?

    Not the most chow-worthy food, but a really fun spot is The Steaming Tender http://www.steamingtender.com/ It's a converted railroad station, great historic atmosphere, mediocre food. My kids loved it.

      It would be perfect, especially for my son the trainiac. Sadly though, they are closed on Tuesday, which is our designated travel day <sigh>.

      Pinocchio's in the Three Rivers section of Palmer is very good. It's a few miles off the exit, but it's just about the best restaurant in the area I know of. Here's the website.

        Terrific - after much searching this is where we have decided to go. Thanks for letting us know it's a good choice.
