OK for specials nights

This place is pretty average. Lots of TV screens. Very interesting wall mural. Pleasant porch seating area. The specials nights are the hot ticket here; some good deals ! They add tax to the bill.

It's ok, but below average. We were surprised because we have heard so many good things. The ribs were ok, scallops below average, large breaded shrimp below average.

Not worth the time or trouble. Went twice and was unimpressed both times. The only thing that saved them from one star is the ribs on rib night were cooked point on. Cooked correctly but sauced with a version of ketchup! Uh no. Then to put the same sauce as a bean base? Unhappy servers and no motivation make for... More

The service here was actually a little faster than most places. We had pizza one night. It was ok, but the part of the crust near the outside faster a bit like lemon dish soap. We went one night and had tacos. The prices are average for the area. We would go again, but not a place I would say... More

Myself and seven friends went to dinner. Arrived at 6:00 ordered and at 7:30 our meal had not arrived. We left. As the years have gone by the services has gone from bad to worse. The waitresses seem disheartened when guests arrive. You will have a hard time seeing one smile. You best buy beer because the margaritas are sweet... More

We thought we would give them another try after being disappointed the last time. We were pleasantly surprised. Sunday night prime rib is obviously the night to come. Friendly prompt service and large portion. 1 order was large enough for people. Will definitely return.

Had dinner with 14 people. All dinners were great. I had fish and chips with sea bass. It was awesome. Everything from the homemade chips to fried ice cream was great.

I ate her last year and my wife and friends were done on this trip. I had been bragging up the place and to my disappointment it was terrible. My steak was overcooked, the Calamari was so overcooked it was like shoe leather. Very friendly place but the food was just so busy this year.

Had driven by here several times and always seemed to be very busy. Well the wife and I decided to give them a try as we were going to be in the area for awhile. The food was fair but not one of the best meal I have eaten in the area. The drinks were just okay and the wait... More
