Nice selection

I had the hot roast beef sandwich with brown gravy and mashed potatoes. It was awesome!!! The cheesecake for dessert was very big. The service was good but slow. You should give them a try.

We got very poor service and the waiter charged us extra for changing the regular salad to ceasar although he didn't inform us that it will be extra? One of our steaks came undercooked. Not going again.

I recently ate at gators with my wife and her whole family for my brother in laws wedding rehearsal dinner. We were impressed that they got all the food out at the same time but realized that some of it had to have sat for a few minutes to make it happen. My steak was over cooked and my wife's... More

The best restaurant along the highway (US 61) in Burlington. I eat there time and time again during my six months stay. The staff learned who I was, what and how I liked my food and acted accordingly. Nice cold beer.......always a smile!

We also ordered the spinach dip for an appetizer and it was quite different than any other hot spinach dip we have ever had before. Not that... More

Food was average at best. The waiter was not excited about the food or his work. He even said the mashed potatoes were not good. The onion straws appetizer was good. No one said goodbye or thank you when we left.

The place is a sports bar. Not bad, I'd equate it to most chain sports bars as far as food. Prices are reasonable and staff is friendly.

Pretty penny will be spent but you will enjoy a very nice dining experience. Wait staff are on it and polite.
