We stopped here for lunch while visiting the baseball HOF. It was in a good location and the inside was kind of rustic which provided a nice atmosphere. Staff was courteous and seated us quickly. We were seated upstairs on the deck because it was a beautiful day. Food was good, fountain sodas were cold and bubbly. Overall a decent... More

While I wasn't thrilled with the food here, I must give massive kudos to the woman manning the bar. She was sweet, funny, and personable, everything to make a midday drink break enjoyable.

Stopped here after reading reviews and seeing that there wasn't a wait. Outside seating very nice. Steak salad and fajitas were tasty and plentiful. Wings and burgers were just okay. More pricey than the Lake Front Grille and not as scenic. Worth the stop but maybe just one visit. So many other great choices.

Fun place to eat (upstairs). Very folksy and friendly. Food is fine (although french fries tasted like the frozen kind--need an upgrade, guys! Next time I'll go with the baked potato!) Sweet and friendly service from new waitress Nicole--You go, girl! We will return!

We were just walking in the Main Street looking for Dinner and then heard people in the back and saw this place. The closer we got to it the better it smelled! I had the buffalo wrap my husband had fish tacos and we share lobster bisque. We were both very pleased with our meals. I got a side of... More

We stopped here after going to the hall of Fame. Saw it right down the street after we left the Hall. I read a few reviews on line and recognized the name. We went to eat and were very pleased the staff was friendly and the food was very good. Also had a cold beer which was perfect for a... More

I am a very fussy fish eater. Friday night fish fry. Huge piece of beer battered haddock,. Very fresh and perfectly cooked. I have sent back fish in the best restaurants. Nice location across form Hall of Fame.

Picked this place to eat lunch after visiting the HOF. The food was ok but too overpriced. Wished we had picked another place that actually had something to do with baseball.

Found this place walking from the main street to the lake. The service was good and the food was tasty. A cowboy western motif, nothing to signify it's location in baseball heaven, but having something different has its advantages as well. I gave this a rating of a four because my daughter ordered mac n' cheese and they had run... More

Dinner was wonderful! We had similar pasta dishes with my husband's spicer than mine. Both were wonderful!!! Staff was very friendly. Service was great and the... More
