I came with a large party for lunch after a funeral. We had one server for 30 people. She was wonderful and kept our drinks filled. The salad bar was nice but $4.99 WITH an entree for lunch. She said it's more for dinner. The French Onion soup was awesome. Some of the best I have had and I adore... More

Standard American fare which rarely disappoints but is not expected to excel! Very popular with very good service and terrific salad bar.

When we don't have time to sit in for a great meal we will call and order take out. The filet and blue salad is always delicious and my husband likes the chicken Parmesan.

There's not much going on in Amsterdam, NY. At all. But this is a pretty nice, restaurant where everybody knows each other. Including the servers who talk a little too much to their regular customers while the non-regulars (that would be me) kind of get ignored. Salad bar, prime rib neither of which I've had seems to be favs. The... More

We were coming back from the last day at Animal Land and took a chance we could get in since it was still early. We were in luck ! One of the best dinners we have had in a while. It's great when the whole table is making those happy noises. I chose the Lobster Special, it was three half... More

Love the stuffed shrimp, with the artichoke dip. Food was cooked well with excellent service. We make a point to stop in every time we are in town.

Having lived in Amsterdam for many years, I would frequently have lunch or dinner here. I never truly appreciated how good this restaurant was until I moved out of state. I now make sure to visit every time I am back in the Amsterdam area. Went there tonight for Prime Rib. Hard to find a better one.
