We visited here on a Thursday evening. No wait and just locals. I had been there before on a weekend and it was packed! The food was great! I had a fabulous burger and my husband had a sizzling mexican dish. The portions were generous and the wait staff was courteous and prompt. The salad bar was your standard fare.... More

Stopped here around 4pm. There were people at the bar - but no one at the hostess desk. Waited approximately 4-5 minutes before any staff came to seat me. Ordered the Bourbon Chicken and then the Bourbon Shrimp to go. Both were quite tasty - but I would honestly order the sauce on the side and add my own as... More

We enjoyed lunch here on a recent week day. It was not busy-but there were people in the restaurant. We have dined here several times, and the quality of food seems to remain about the same. The French Onion Soup is spectacular. Add in the salad bar and the meal is a more than satisfying lunch. There are so many... More

I had the french dip and it was superb! It comes with an order of fries, but I ordered it with garlic fries instead of regular, and they hot, fresh, and perfectly seasoned. My friend had the open face steak sandwich which was cooked perfectly and the regular fries were great too! The only complaint was that even though the... More

and a credible salad bar. Prices are good, food not too imaginative but dependably tasty and great service. Have been coming here for 10 years and never had a bad time.

First time at this restaurant on Easter Sunday. They had a buffet set up and several choices. The food was good and we had an enjoyable time.

The Rose was a favorite of ours while in college and every time we venture back to the Hill we go. Again, it was wonderful. You get a good portion of excellent food. Add in the salad bar and I feel this is an excellent deal. We will always go back to the Rose with fond memories of the past.... More

Located in a Cayuga Heights shopping center just outside of Ithaca, this place has been here for as long or longer than I have (18 years). Good food, good salad bar, good booze if you're into drinking... I stopped by with my girlfriend tonight to play QUICK DRAW around 10PM... Place had a Football, Baceball, Quick Draw..., heck it had... More

It tasted like my enchiladas has spaghetti sauce on them. The tables needed cleaned and my server was indifferent.
