Great Service from Poppy

My pasta looked like soup. By the time it was right, it was heated 3x. My hubby finished before I even got started. The manager gave a whole 20% off my meal, when I had a night to celebrate and had to watch my husband completely finish his steak (which he said was good) before my pasta had to be... More

We have a large family and it was steak loving Grandpa's birthday. When we arrived, the staff had set up a huge table and everything was ready for us. The restaurant was packed but the staff was calm and efficient. Food was excellent. You could tell the Chef made his food, sauces, etc. from scratch. Salad was really good, dressings... More

We really wanted to try this place and noticed it was open until 9pm. After a long drive we arrived at 8.20pm and were told we had missed service and they were closing. I asked if they would allow us to order something to take out and were told that the kitchen had closed. We understand we were here to... More

The food here was good, appetizer was amazing and the staff was really friendly! For the price you pay you would not expect this caliber of food nor this good service but they delivered to a tee!

Stopped in for breakfast the other day. Had a great waitress. Other than that I wasn't impressed. My wife said her Eggs Benedict was fine. My corned beef hash and eggs was terrible. I would say that in all of my years of eating corned beef hash this by far the worst I have ever had and the hash browns... More

Service was very good. Our server was attentive and kept our iced tea filled. Our meals were good-a chicken dish, grilled salmon and fried fish. The mushroom soup was tasty and the veggies were nice and crisp, not soggy like you get some places. The portion sizes were large and prices were reasonable.
