good experience

Restaurant was near my hotel. Glad I tried it. Looked at posted prices and was about to leave until I noticed what was included in the price. Soup was good. Salad bar had lots of variety and I like being able to choose my own ingredients and amount. Bread was unusual but very good. Entree... read more

I had the western burger - beef, BBQ sauce, cheese, jalepenos, onion rings. Every bite was delicious. My wife had the turkey bacon wrap and really enjoyed it. Very friendly waitress made for a very enjoyable Saturday night meal.

While I am not a total "steak house' afficianodo, but my father was and this one meets the criteria. Excellent service, consistentantly good food/we were there with locals, and a classic atmosphere! Land and sea were both good and a barrel salad bar that was a "blast from the past"! An added bonus for me, as a special educator, is... More

Steak and the fried shrimp was as good as ever. Service by waitress was a bit slow. Disappointed in their salad bar as not as much items to choose from as our previous visits.

My wife and I went here for dinner with friends that we hadn't seen for around 15 years. My wife being a vegetarian, had just the salad bar. The other three of us had prime rib. My piece was cold and tough, very little flavor. I've had better at chain restaurants in Rockford. The horseradish sauce was very good. Everything... More

My rehearsal dinner was hosted at this venue. We had a private banquet with family style service. The staff was very accommodating and patient. The food was delicious!

We enjoyed the best prime rib in the whole area. And their famous salad bar has never been better. The service is the friendliest in town and prices are so reasonable. This was always my late mother's favorite place to dine in town. From great soups, salads, steaks and twice baked potatoes, you go away very satisfied.
