It is Great place with ample food and good service. it is an older building but the food was very good! We thought it was notable... read more

I went there because my parents in law were there a few years ago and recommended it as steak place. I ordered ceasar salad...omg that was freaking awful. Depsite the fact it had eggs in it (chicken ceasar with eggs, really?) the salad was not fresh at all and it looked like it was the last day for romaine lettuce... More

Ate here based on other tripadvisor reviews and in walking distance from our hotel. They have a good senior selection at a good price. Got turkey and stuffing along with mashed potatoes and gravy. It was real, not processed, turkey and was very good.

We have stopped here before and the food and service has always been very good. I had the patti melt and tater tots both very good. My wife had a cheese burger and a bowl of clam chowder and both were great. They have a full breakfast bar and at noon they change over to a full salad bar. The... More

After a very long day's drive, we stopped to spend the night next door at the Foothills Best western. After checking in we walked to AJ's. I had prime rib and and he had taco salad. We both agreed the meal was very good. Our waiter was very polite and made sure all was good. The manager even checked to... More

I have eaten at this restaurant a couple of times before today (5-30-2015) and the food and service was good, but today the service was terrible. I was shown to my booth next to a couple that were eating and was told that someone would be right there to get my order, to make a long story short I wait... More

There is a wonderful soup/salad bar which we took advantage of; my husband had a bacon cheeseburger that was quite good and I had a patty melt which was about average--hardly any cheese. We certainly did not leave hungry! The place was practically empty but the service seemed lacking and the lemonade was nearly undrinkable--basically colored water. I suffered through... More

We try to stop there every time we we are in the area. The food is always good as is the service. I have noticed that there is always a number of locals there, which is a good sign.

Not a bad experience, good chicken fired steak but the salad was wet, as in water inning off it, so the dressing didn't "stick." My husband liked his Salisbury steak, great mushroom sauce he said. Service was great even though the wait staff were very busy!

Arrived for late morning breakfast. A friendly server seated us immediately and coffee followed. The menu is varied with Senior's choices. Our eggs and bacon arrived on heated plates with separate hot plates for very crisp and tasty Belgium waffles. No runny syrup in the eggs! There is a lunch buffet at noon with hot entrees plus salads. Homemade pies... More
