It is a very nice restaurant and I prefer their chicken and stake dishes. Also if you have kids the have fun themes and coloring papers.

This was our first time at this restaurant; service was very good; food quality was excellent. Saganaki was authentic and was very good! Everyone at the table enjoyed their entrees. Would try this place again.

We used to love going to the Dundee one. But they built this one closer to us, so we go here. The popcorn as you wait is great - salty just like I like it. There drinks are awesome - got to love rum barrels! Food was fine - menu is huge and overwhelming. Love their french onion soup

I personally like their chicken sandwich and the service is good. It will never be a destination but on a Wednesday when you don't like what you have in your own refrigerator you... More

Last time I was there I had one of... More

The Squire has some very good food choices in a nice atmosphere. Be prepared for a long dining experience, however.

Old, dark, dog-earred menus, stains on carpet, this is one of those places that has been around for an eternity, has loyal customers (mostly 60-somethings who meet after their bridge club) and is, honesyly, not as good as Olive Garden, Chilis or the like. When you walk into a place and see a menu that serves every conceivable food--hamburgers, pasta,... More
