I love to meet friends and family here for drinks and happy hour eats! Their "Italian" nachos are awesome and their drink specials are really well priced. I've eaten in their restaurant once and was underwhelmed. I usually eat in the bar area and get apps as my meals lol, no complaints from my... read more

Was passing through town and looking for an early dinner. As expected it wasn't crowded due to the time. Many choices, too many really. I think they are trying to be more than they are. I think they should try for more of a bar type menu than dinner platters. They do have a 3 course early bird special! The... More

My husband and I stopped during happy hour. We ordered a veggie pizza and a few drinks. We sat in the bar area. Bar was crowded with lots of conversations and with the Televisions on and the music blasting too loud. We could not even have a conversation. The pizza was amazing and service was excellent. I requested the music... More

Overall a nice place for drinks. They have a good pool of live entertainment that comes in pretty regularly. Atmosphere is good. Appetizers were good (they have a different spin on chicken wings and they were great). Husband had a chicken parm sandwich and it was pretty bad. I had a spinach salad with salmon that was pretty good.

At one point in time, in a galaxy not so far away, Tuscan House was a pretty solid area dining option, but that was long ago. The quality of food has hit the bottom. When the highlight of the meal is the bread, there is a problem. A Marsala sauce that tastes like the dry package if came in with... More
