Service excellent, food very good. Can't complain about anything except I work pretty early and it doesn't open until 6:30.

The NBA championships were on TV so the bar was pretty busy when we arrived about 7:30 pm for a late-ish dinner. We were seated promptly, but it went downhill from there. They were poorly staffed - 1 server for the entire place. Unfortunately my companion was not ready to order when the server came to get our drink order... More

WOW!! The food was bad...so bad we burped it HORRIBLY for awhile. The BILL was astronomical for what we got and how it tasted.....under cooked and over seasoned, extra spices/seasonings added to increase prices maybe?!?!?!

The restaurant was understaffed on a Monday Memorial Day (so lots of travelers). We waited quite a while just to have our order taken for breakfast. My husband's omelette was okay and my

We had the Mother's Day brunch. The menu for the day was varied to appeal to all tastes: Eggs Benedict to Prime Rib and Turkey with stuffing and mashed potatoes and gravy. A salad bar, Mimosas and dessert was included. My husband and I had the Eggs Benedict: the worst ever! The English Muffin was whole wheat, which is not... More

I will go back and sure the price point is a little high but I found it was worth it. I found that the staff was great and service was very good, They gave us extra service I love it.

Staff is friendly, nice atmosphere. That's where it ends. My Chineese chicken salad was the worst. The salad was inedible, dressing tasted like cleaning product. I did eat the peanut chicken, which was tasty. Honestly if the waitress had come back to check sooner, I would have returned the salad. Husband had turkey club which he enjoyed, while complaining about... More

The food here is not what it used to be, according to the legends and visits when I was younger. It seems more like a coffee shop now and the quality of the food is not high. However, the worst part of our experience was when I returned to the table from the bathroom to find that the waitress was... More

Great entrees and fabulous desserts. Nice atmosphere in a central location off Interstate 80 and Route 49. Service is outstanding.
