Drove from Vermont to meet family for dinner. Big salad bar and I had prime rib. It was cooked to the way I ask. Waitress was helpful and very friendly and the best food ever. Will be going again in August.

This place reminded me of a mom and pop joint meets the elks club circa 1987. The decor is so horrible it's enjoyable. Emerald green curtains with magenta lights, wagon when chandeliers, it made me very nostalgic. I think the last time it was decorated the golden girls were winning Emmys. I do have to say I rather enjoyed the... More

The food was mediocre at best and there are so many good restaurants in town, I would not bother. The decor was very dated and the food was not fresh.
