BREWSTER, N.Y. - Tom & Jerry's Irish House and Maggie's Restaurant have been a part of the Brewster landscape for 22 years, sticking around for the simplest of reasons.
"The food is great," owner Sean Scott told Daily Voice when asked why his restaurant has resonated with locals. "We're geared toward being a family restaurant. We have a lot of good regulars, and people love the food here. Our burgers and wings are fantastic."
The restaurant has a full menu, serving lunch and dinner, and Scott - who took over the business six years ago - said the staff makes people feel at home.
"We want to make people feel like this is their neighborhood spot," Scott said.
Customers in the tavern section of the bar/restaurant - which started as separate businesses, before knocking down the wall between the two - agreed.
"The people who own the place and the bartenders are all great," said Brewster resident Peter Gannon. "This is our local neighborhood hangout. There aren't many left."
