I am biased because my niece's husband owns this but I will try to be fair in exclaiming about it.The theme for this submarine sandwich store is 1950s. The booths are in red leatherette with dark wood. The floor is black and white checkered tiles. The lighting is globe lamps hung from a ceiling that is dimpled like the old tin-plate ceilings. It is...more
The food here is pretty good but the noise is a din.The place is set up to entertain kids while they eat. It is one big room with all booths and formica tables. There are video-type games in one section of the room. Another section of the room has a clown doing tricks with balloons. Kids are roaming around with ice cream cones dripping.You order at...more
I have had these pizzas for over 35 years and they have consistently stayed top of the list.Nice thick crust with lots of cheese. The sauce is just slightly sweet and they use virgin olive oil and don't overdo it. The bread itself is firm but not too chewy and they burn it just a touch to get that charcoaled flavor. The dough is hand made daily and...more

Or you can come in after 5pm and get BBQ chicken, roasted mushrooms and fried onions and peppers as...more
This outdoor access mall is new to Webster. It is another sign of the economic growth of the town.
Since opening in 2006, it has added Kohls, Panera, Target, barnes and Noble, Dicks and Old Navy. Plans are in the works for five more national brands to come in 2007.
My wife shops here often with my daughter who lives in the area.
Because it is a new mall and wants to increase its customer base, there are always great coupons in the local papers for most of the stores in this plaza.Related to:

Webster Off The Beaten Path
Webster has a variety of landscape that makes it a great place to do bird watching. Even though the recent housing boom is beginning to reduce some of the free land there still are plenty of places to get away from the crowd and listen to the calls of the wild.
Webster Park is centered at Holt Road and Lake Road intersection and covers a large area of camping, picnicing and open field/woods. It is a good birding area in all seasons accept for summer (when it is heavily populated by two legged creatures carrying baskets of food).
The lake front is frequented by ducks and geese and gulls. In the wooded areas can be seen (if you are fortunate) Snowy Owls and Pine Grosbeaks and Finches. The fields near the woods are frequented by warblers and raptors and in springtime by various migrants.
To get there, take route 104 expressway to Holt Road and head north to the lake and there you are. address is 255 Holt Road for main park officeRelated to:
