Our server Linda was attentive for both meals there. Friendly and charming, she kept us happy. Coconut Shrimp, hot brown loaf and great draught selections. Very convenient, since it was connected to our hotel, La Quinta.

Little known secret. You can sit in the bar area for dinner. First come first serve. Our server was Linda. She was fantastic. Heat value food quality was excellent. TVA all over the place in the bar. If you come on a fri or sat after six expect a decent wait.

I usually sit in the bar area at this restaurant. The drinks and service are very good. I usually end up with always the same steak special with a sweet potato and salad with the house dressing.

We have been coming to this restaurant 3-4 times a year for many years. I always order the large cut of prime rib,medium rare, classic style. We arrived this time to find a completely remodeled interior which I thought was a nice improvement, while others with us preferred the prior atmosphere.

The food was good but the place is way too cold. All the diners were huddled under parkas and shawls. This is not the first time this happens in summer or winter. I asked for the ac to be turned off, but hot no response. Would never go there or to the adjacent hotel again.

We stayed at the LaQuinta which adjoined the restaurant. It was very convenient to eat here and we did so 3 times because of the prices and the convenience.
