It is 9:15 on a Friday morning. Sitting in their usual spot are four Raferty girls ~ an aunt, her two nieces and her niece's daughter. You can almost set your clock by this sight, for every Friday morning at 9:15, there are always at least four Rafertys in the house at Buttonwoods Fish & Chips. Four Rafertys today, but often upwards of ten of them, spanning three generations. Growing up in a household of six girls and one boy, there were plenty of meals spent around the Raferty kitchen table, so crowding around a table here at this cozy restaurant just feels right for this close-knit family.
As the years have gone by, traditions like Friday mornings at Buttonwoods Fish & Chips are what have kept these family ties strong. The Rafertys, and so many others like them, know that keeping those bonds strong is important so that when times get rough, there will always be a soft place to fall. Buttonwoods Fish & Chips is just that kind of "soft" place to go for reconnecting, relaxation, tender loving care, laughs and plenty of homestyle cooking.
At Buttonwoods, the food is wholesome, made from scratch, and tastes just like mom used to make. Just ask a Raferty daughter who swoons: "The French toast is amazing! Delicious!" Another favorite ~ the Belgium waffle prepared just like this morning's special - loaded with blueberries and served with a side of eggs, bacon and coffee. Or, as Colleen immediately exclaims, "the Number 2!" - two eggs, homefries, sausage and toast! Satisfying to the soul - just like home.
Buttonwoods Fish & Chips is a popular destination for diners throughout the entire region. Open six days a week, including Friday evenings, owner Tony and Jackie Fiore and their team of cooks are busy preparing every heart-warming dish you can think of. Here, you will find a long menu of hot-off-the-grill breakfasts including fresh omelets, French toast, Belgium waffles, muffins, bagels, pancakes, breakfast meats & home fries - the choices are endless and incredibly affordable. Lunch is just as enticing, with your favorite classic hot and cold sandwiches, crispy salads and tasty fish platters, including their popular Fish & Chips.
On Friday evenings, enjoy a large selection of hearty and ever-changing American and Italian-style dishes. Buttonwoods is BYOB, so don't forget to bring along your favorite bottle of wine to share!
