No more cottage fries?????

This is one of our favorite places to eat when in Monroe but I'm very disappointed they took cottage fries off the menu, I can't find them anywhere else. We had a great meal as usual but that let me down

Called in an order at 11:45 for pick up at noon or so. Just a simple bowl of potato soup. Got there at 12:10 and order was no where to be found. Waitresses were sullen and seemed totally disinterested in who needed to get the order together. Finally got my order at 12:35... and the soup was a BIG disappointment.... More

This is the 3rd time I have eaten here this summer. One time it was so good. The other 2 times it was not as good. The Monte Cristo sandwich was good the first time I had it but this trip it was not good. It was more like french toast with syrup. The roast beef is usually good bit... More

We had the fried shrimp po boy and the grilled crawfish po boy - very tasty. The potato salad was also very good. A beer lover, my boyfriend asked for recommendations and the waitress and bartender were happy to oblige, bringing samples for him to try. We left full and happy. The staff was very friendly! Cute place.

This place is so cute and they have the most awesome burgers in the world!! I love the sweet bun they serve it on. I love that they put a bowl of pickles on the table for you to snack on. You won't be disappointed if you visit this restaurant!!

Stopped for lunch. My Wife and I ordered sandwiches. Their menu is quite extensive with a lot of choices. DO NOT USE THE RESTROOMS. Absolutely FILTHY. Someone needs to explain to the employees that they need to get in there and really clean. Toilet was broken in the men's restroom and a sign on the door, IF DOOR IS CLOSED,... More

Super sandwiches and salads at the well know eatery. Always packed a lunch so get there before 11:30. Easy to find. Good food and service.

This has been one of my favorite place for almost two decades, even through some ownership changes. The food is great. Lots of good sandwiches, love the Ruben. The cottage fries with honey mustard is awesome. The culture has changed a little to more of a bar feel especially in the evening. Oh yeah, one of the best beer selections... More

Extensive menu & selection of all types of sandwiches; also daily specials + several good salads. The burgers are very good and you can order several kinds of french fries. The club sandwich is so large two adults could split it. Reuben is also good;mI did not think the Philly cheese was up to par. great variety of beer. The... More
