Good choice

It is a pleasant, rustic dining room. The service was very good and the food was delicious. I will be going back next time I'm in town.

We always know that we will have a great meal when we eat here. 90% of the time I order their prime rib, and I'm never disappointed!

We've been here many times. The menu is typical, and the food is good. Try the clam chowder. It's probably some of the best I've ever had. It's in need some of some sprucing up, but it's still a nice place to eat. The servers are very friendly, and everyone is very friendly. It's a very nice place to go... More

The food is pretty good, selection is okay. Steak and fish is wonderful but everything is a bit spendy, the ambiance is really nice, dark and comfortable. They are a busy place :)

I love the Walleye-a-la-ritz. it is my favorite from anywhere I have had fish and popovers (oh so so yummy popovers) If you have kiddos, I suggest going eat... More

The food was very good! A large selection and it was cooked to order. The waitstaff was a little slow but the food compensated for that.

Asked for a Medium Bone in Rib Eye, and received a very rare and rubbery version. The mushrooms were still cool and crisp, hard to say sautéed when they're still raw. My partners shrimp were clearly out of the box and well beyond overcooked. They obviously don't have chefs, but rather some greasy spoon cooks.

The food was good and the decor great to look at. The service was good. Only complaint....the chairs at the table. I have very short legs and found the depth of the seats uncomfortable. A small price to pay for good food.

We chose to eat in the lounge area as there was a wait for the restaurant. Loved the decor. The food was very good. Great service.
