We had just driven 500 miles, so we were looking for a quick meal and then go back to our hotel. We were going to another steak place, but this one showed up first so we turned on in. There was a special of $1 off Beers so my husband took advantage of it. $3.75 for a Sam Adams, then... More

I love the atmosphere of this restaurant. I was with a large group of people and the servers did pretty good with all of the orders. Everyone that ordered a steak came away satisfied with their meals. The few that did not had something to say about their meals. Overall I really liked the place plus it was very close... More

Met with a very friendly server who kept our glasses full and the food didn't seem to take very long. Holland was our server and she did an outstanding job. I had the Hog Wild Burger, very good flavor. Will be back the next time I visit.

My husband and I had never heard of this restaurant before. We tried it and really liked it. It was close to our hotel and easy to get to. We had an excellent experience from the friendly staff to the wonderful food. Before the meal they brought us complimentary pinto beans and homemade bread which was delicious. We had the... More

The food here was just okay. The decor is fun and the staff is friendly. The food isn't bad, but it's nothing to brag about. We ordered sandwiches and the wait time seemed excessive.

I was really thinking that this place wouldn't be that good. The building and inside decor was a little dated, busy, and dark. That is the only negative things i can say about it. The food, including the blooming onion (better than Outback) was very good. Our waitress was great and the prices were reasonable. Oh.. and the beer was... More
