Great Steak and Awesome Shrimp!

If you want a great steak for middle of the road price and a nice atmosphere, this is the place. I recommend ordering Joe's Steak for two and getting the Railroad Shrimp for the free appetizer. Ask for more of their "Con-Sauce" that comes with the shrimp to dip your steak in. You will not regret... read more

Wow.. The first thing you notice about this place is the acoustics! Prepare not to hear anyone speaking to you while you're inside!! The food is mediocre at best and the prices are astronomical! Our particular server was less than interested.

Never crowded at lunch on weekdays. Food is always good and I love the 1930's era mountain lake atmosphere.

This restaurant is close to my house and we go there at least a few times a year . . . Usually for an occasion as it can be a little pricey. Even with that being said the food is awesome and good consistent quality. The service has always been friendly and fast when we have gone . . .... More

After a long evening of trying to find a restaurant with little to no wait time, we finally got here and found no wait time. We were welcomed and seated immediately, with a waitress coming around a while after to take our drink orders. She took long enough to do so that we had all already decided on what we... More

I have only been to this restaurant twice, but haven't gone back. Overall, I would say it was average, but when I received an appetizer salad with RAW steak I complained and they cooked the meat and gave me back the same salad. They weren't apologetic and it was cold and dark so it was hard to see what I... More

We didn't have to wait to be seated. Prompt service. good explanation of the menu. Had the prime rib, very good. Not too noisy. The biggest difference between this place, and the others, was the price. They are a little high but considering the quality of food not too bad.

Fantastic food, went there twice. I ordered steak one night, chicken on the other, with soup as an entree. Would highly recommend the baked potatoe as well.
