Please note that Wed is half price appetizers all day! Went for lunch, and it took forever to get our food. Most people liked their food. I thought the chicken tenders were pretty bad. The mac/cheese app was decent. So, that's why I'm saying it was just ok.

We decided to go here for our 17th anniversary , and our grown children joined us.(2nd marriage if you are doing the math). It was a very nice evening. Food was excellent and service was great. My only complaint is it is a bit noisy, but that's pretty typical for a tavern atmosphere .

We've eaten here more than once; we like the atmosphere and the decor. The food is not over priced, the menu is varied and we like coming here. It's a great place that is not your 'big chain' type of restaurant. Try it - you'll like it!

We had reservations for a party of 6 on a Saturday night and we were sat right away. 4 people ordered the NY Strip & all of them loved it - some saying it was the best steak they've had in a long time. There seemed to be a nice sear on the steaks. I got the Shrimp Scampi Risotto... More

We greatly enjoyed our first visit here. Arrived about 6 PM on a Saturday night and waited about 45 minutes for a two top. Enjoyed a glass of wine at the small bar just inside the entry (not a lot of room for those waiting). This is a very homey place with warmly painted walls, horsey artwork, old restored wood... More

Good food on the fancier side (think meats and fish approx 20$ range) with a very cute building, good decor, clean and several people waited on us or asked if we needed anything. Worth the visit. Might return but there are other choices I've yet to explore in the area. Furthermore, had a Very yummy steak for the Sunday night... More

Stopped in for dinner after the Bengals game. The place was packed before the game, but we were able to be seated right away with no reservations. After stadium food, we were looking for a nice dinner and we were not disappointed. We ordered a crab cake appetizer, the filet mignon with onion straws, linguini primavera with shrimp and a...

My boyfriend and I frequent here on Mondays when their burgers are less than $6, its a great lunch in a great growing area! It can get busy kinda quick, so if you're after an outside table around lunch you should get there early. Extra parking is around back. I get the blinker burger, usually, my guy gets the black...

I loved everything about this restaurant. The lighting, the service, the seating, the everything. The only reason for the 4 star is due to fact three of our group had to send our steaks back to be cooked properly

Service was very friendly. Called before I went and it seemed like they wanted to servo me. Parking in the back is ok There is plenty of parking around anyway. Hostess was helpful and groovy. I had a great experience. The ny strip is very tasty and perfectly cooked.
