I only like to go here for the Caesar Salad. The service is ok although one night we left after having to wait forever to be seated (it wasn't busy at all) and then we never saw our server so we left. Not clear on their wine - we order Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir every time but my husband... More

Enjoy the food at this downtown Restaurant-Good Food Good Service and brew. What more could you want. Had seconds on the warm and flavorful biscuits. The BBQ was pretty damn good also. One caution-this are of Batavia is not very savory as it has some minor crime! But well-worth the visit!

We have eaten at this restaurant several times. Have always had good service. The prices are reasonable. It has a nice atmosphere. There are two floors for dining. I would say the food is more of a "down home country" style. Have never left empty or disappointed.

We were turned away from Alex's place for no reservation and it was the best denial ever. We came here and the ambiance is perfect. Staff was friendly. Service was perfect. And the food was fabulous. Then after dinner they had free live entertainment in the square adjacent to the restaurant. What a perfect evening.

The food was OK. The floor was sticky. The menus and check portfolio were filthy. I brought these issues to the attention of the manager. The manager had no response.

The service tonight was absolutely horrid. The waiter joked about how he takes forever and he held true to that. He cane out once and said "Oh you need biscuits". 25 minutes kater he comes back with our food and says "where are your biscuits?". That my good sir is a good question. We had finished our drinks before the... More

Nice looking place. But every time the place has many empty seats. Hostess is trained to say 20 -30 minute wait. Obviously trying to get you to buy alcohol. So if you come plan on no quick trip. It will be a wait
