New Opening in June? Maybe----Matilda's Quincy

So, for 20 or so years I've driven by this spot on Quincy Shore Drive--looks like a residential/commercial combo with a small restaurant downstairs, living(?) space above. In all this time I've never seen it open.
When work gets too stressful, I've often daydreamed that I'd love to own it as a little icecream/breakfast/lunch spot (recalling my Friendly's days in highschool, back when Friendly's was such). Then I remember that in the summer, I'd rather play more than I wish to scoop icecream and flip burgers and remind myself how grateful I am to be gainfully employed.
But I still notice this spot.
Well--now it's open.
Quincy folks--anyone been? Ever--years ago, or now? What's it like? There's nothing on line about it and I can't get in there for a while...Happy to see the open sign!
Tony's has a sign up that says "try our Richardson's ice cream next door at Matilda's". I'm not sure what the affiliation is. I haven't been yet. Too busy enjoying the clams at Tony's. When I was a kid it was called Schwartzs and I hung out with one of the Schwartzs. Whenever I stayed over in the off season we would always beg her mother to go downstairs and make fried clams. She didn't always give in but when she did it was something special. I'm happy to see Matilda's giving it a go.
