Excellent service average food

This restaurant is in a strip mall. Nicely decorated. Great service. However average food. Good but not outstanding. I had a chicken salad. Fresh but not great.

I've lived in town for 5yrs and had never heard much about this place but when our work decided to have a get together here I figured it was the perfect chance to try it out on someone elses dime. I had heard mediocre to bad reviews about the place so. It's such a dive. If you don't mind smelling... More

The service here is great. Food isn't anything to really brag about, but it isn't too bad. We had a large group and they easily accomodated us in their big room off to the side with a TV. One waitress handled our party of about 15 and she did it with excellence. She was such a nice lady and really... More

If you were to ask me for food recommendations, I would suggest starting with their onion rings or crispy wings (skip the Louisana Shrimp ~ other things are so much better), then move on to the breaded tenderloin or one of their pizzas like Cheeseburger or...

We sat in the bar area for dinner and was surprised by how friendly the bartend was to everyone. After our first drinks, she nailed it every time without asking what we were drinking. It wasn't that she wasn't busy, but it seemed she did it with everyone. When we asked for menu recommendations she named a few, pointed them... More
