Founded in 1924, it is known as much for its atmosphere as for its food.[2] The seating is family-style. Ownership of the restaurant has remained in the same family since it opened.

It features regularly in Rhode Island Monthly's "Best of Rhode Island" awards.[3][4] In 1999, Esquire listed it in its "Greatest Lunch Ever Made" feature.[5]
