I absolutely love this bar and grill! The service is excellent and the food is a real treat. There are plenty of big screen televisions to watch the game. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The staff is attentive. It is a very nice place to grab a bite to eat or to grab a beer on game day.

The food is generally better than average. The service is good to not so great and seems to dependent on which day you are there. There seems to be a gossip gathering at the end of the bar. Some servers are outstanding and a few are less than great. The service is always better when the owner sits at the... More

I've been here twice in the last month and the food was good both times. My only complaint would be that on the first occasion we sat in the bar and the waitress did not greet us or come to our table. We ended up going to the bar to order even though we were sitting at a table. Food... More

Ate with family and one steak was over done. It was sent back and was good the second time. Their deck is very nice and much quieter than the dining room. The southwestern queso and chip appetizer is good and so it the loaded mashed potatoes.

We ate here tonight for the second time. This is a very nice place, kind of out in the middle of nowhere. Food and drinks were good, service was great and people were friendly. Even a wedding reception was being celebrated. We liked most everything EXCEPT the noise--it is very loud in the main dining area. Not sure if they... More

The menu could use updating...there aren't a lot of restaurants in the area so we go there because we live nearby...

We stopped by Northern Trails today (after having previously poor experiences in years past) thinking maybe they had improved. No one greeted us at the door, a simple sign that said Please Seat Yourself, so we seated ourselves and we waited and waited and waited while many servers passed our table...No one ever said a word, we finally left without...

Singles, couples, families, or large parties are welcomed here. It is overall a good place to eat and drink. On the weekends there is dancing. My only complaint is they are not open for breakfast.

Have eaten here twice recently, and both times the food and service were excellent! The menu is extensive, and my food needs require tweaking of the entre, but the restaurant came through each time. The other dishes I saw passing by on the way to other patrons looked tantalizing as well. There are many large TV's in the bar area... More
