Classic Ceaser salad? $8.95 for greens from a bag. There was a generous amount of parmesan and it was dressed correctly, but . . . My husband's perch was quite nice and the fries appeared to be made on site. Perch cooked well and a fairly generous portion. This appears to be a restaurant owned by a conglomerate that has... More

I have an annoying diet. I can't eat shellfish (deathly allergic), I can't eat cheese (makes me ill) and I don't really eat meat. It was a struggle for me to order ANYTHING OFF THIS MENU. I was so nice to the waitress and gave her my annoying list of allergens- no cheese, nuts, shellfish. I asked for like a... More

Whether you eat inside or out, you will be well served with delicious meals here. The Bar and Grill is open for breakfast onwards. American portions are generally over large for British tastes but you might try ordering several starters and sharing them all for a wonderful variety of flavours.

Service was quite slow but boy oh boy was the food good! Fried Perch was top notch and plentiful. Filet mignon was larger than expected and nicely prepared. Best of all were the baby back ribs. Our group was unanimous in saying they were the best we'd ever had. They have large portions so we were too full for dessert.... More

And to top things off...we were charged 25 cents to try one of their beers before ordering a pint of it.

We'd heard the burgers were very good and were not at all disappointed. Unfortunately that was the only great thing about the visit. Crowded tables and harried staff made this less relaxing than I had hoped. Draft beer serving size was tiny but still priced like a pint.

Eaten here several times. I've personally only ever ordered the Parmesan whitefish which is to die for but everyone I've ever been there with has been equally as happy with their dinners. Be sure to make reservations!!!!! Went on a Thursday night with reservations...however the couple ahead of us when we walked in was told there was a 30 minute... More

Understaffed for a weekend took over an hour to get our food from when the order was taken. Steak was over cooked and tough, the seafood salad had brown lettuce and processed seafood. Had to go inside twice to refill my water glass?

We have gone there for years. Back in the day, it was a very nice choice. This last visit was a bit of a disappointment. Food has little taste, no real seasoning. Waitress was basically clueless as to specials, etc. Not cheap for diinner for two, could use a refresh on the menu.

Everybody who came in after us got some service and food and we couldn't get a glass of water! Never to return again!
