The potato skins are by far the best I have had anywhere. The beef is done right. Well worth a visit.

I always receive a consistently good meal here. Service is pretty much always top notch and the host is always very attentive and recognizes parties meeting people whom have already been seated like a sixth sense. I always feel at home here and very well taken care of.

Cannot beat this place for decent, consistently good food. This place is not gourmet, but the beef on wick is great and you can get a cocktail.
