Arrived in the off-hours, 730 pm on a Thursday; so until the normal dinner crowd departed, service was minimal. Once people at other tables departed service became much better. Facility itself is kept cold in summer so bring a jacket. Salad and bread bar are excellent. We ordered the specials and the food portions were so large we had to... More

The Service was great, they didn't rush us out the door like other places. We were there for a few hours, deep in Conversation. A Special Thank You to... More

Some said "very good"... Others were just "satisfied". From my perspective, steak was over cooked and tough. Salad bar had a lot to choose from, but nothing seemed like it was made fresh, rather "scooped out of a bucket". Early bird special had a lot to choose from and the prices were VERY reasonable. Those that ordered the lobster were... More

We celebrated my parents 68 anniversary and the meal was fantastic. They were very accommodating, giving us almost a private room to due hearing problems in large noisy spaces. Our server was outstanding, she accidentally gave my dessert to my son at the end, but we fixed that. She took pictures for us with our cameras, was very attentive to... More

We almost didn't come back after two bad meals in a row last year but thought we should give it one more try. We were very glad we did. Had a meal for two with a 30oz prime rib, stuffed shrimp, lobster tails, potato & green beans. It also came with the salad bar which is quite large with a... More
