A nice meal at a good price

We stopped here on a Sunday Night for a bite to eat. The menu has a fine variety of items at reasonable prices. The service and the food were very good.

This was my first visit in some time. The food, service and conversation were very good. I even had to pick something up for my dog.

We showed up for breakfast with a large party (11 of us) around 8:30 am. We were able to all sit together in the back room, which was great! Our waitress was very sweet, and even though we showed up in stages, she was great at getting drinks, etc. as we arrived. I highly recommend the anadama bread - just... More

Had brisket dinner and it was excellent. My wife had the seafood lasagna and it too was excellent. Wait staff were very attentive and personable. Overall good value for the food and the portions were enough to satisfy and then some.

This restaurant was the best find in St. George. Reasonably priced, great for families, very casual. The desserts are all homemade. We will return when we are in the area.

We stopped for lunch and were told to sit anywhere we wanted. My husband had a haddock sandwich with chips and I got a Philly cheesesteak with fries. Our sandwiches arrived rapidly and were delicious. Both held large portions. The haddock was a large cut that was deep fried and not at all greasy. The cheesesteak had mushrooms, peppers and...

Great atmosphere, wonderful waitress, and most important great food. Note: the cream filled chocolate eclair is to die for!!! It was so rich that it took us 2 days to eat it.... More

Stopped for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed their lobster roll! It was stuffed full of fresh lobster with a light covering of what tasted like homemade mayo. I was a little nervous when menu said "market price" but turned out very reasonable. My husband had the lobster stew and steamed clams. Yummy! Just what we were looking for during our visit... More

so we crossed the street and were treated to a wonderful evening. Food was great, portions were huge and the waitress very friendly and chatty. Highly recommended as a first choice.
