order a cracker and it will be the best cracker you have ever tasted in your life and served in style. I have been to way too many "Beef Houses" in my half a century on this earth, to the point of wanting to be a vegitarian. BUT, even the most staunch Vegan would crumble in the presence of the...

I'm in town for business with my boss. We've stopped here twice and I've not seen some of the issues other people have mentioned. We've both gotten awesome meals and excellent service. There's not much to chose from in this town, and I would definitely say this is the best so far.

Everything comes from a local ready made or frozen package. Was amazed that locals calm this is the best in town. Wines, apatizers, main course all lacking originality, quality and appeal. Didn't bother with dessert, wasn't in the mood for anther disappointing dish. Won't be visiting this establishment again.

Great food great service. Hard to decide what to eat when I go there. They have the best Beef on Weck, and Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches! Their potato skins are to die for!

One of the best meals I have had out in a long time. A warm, friendly greeting at the front door and an amazing cut of Prime Rib cooked perfectly. Beef tips in sauce good too. Bread served with enough butter for a small army - a good thing! The service was AMAZING - Ronni took great care of us.... More

If you like Beef, this is the place to go. Take your business guests. A local favorite Beef on Wyck Roll.

Food here is fantastic. Seriously, get the beef. It is very, very good. The atmosphere is more of a "classic" restaurant, with ornate wood trim on the booths. The wait for getting food at a table of 10 took near 50 minutes, but I am unsure if that was because of the large group or what. I will have to... More

We went to this restaurant for my parent's anniversary. We were in the area camping and we were concerned that we would be underdressed in shorts and t-shirts, but that wasn't the case. People were dressed pretty casually, everything from tank tops and shorts to polo shirts and pants. It was clean and the waitress was friendly. Service was a... More

A pretty descent place to eat but nothing to rave about. Check hours before setting out to eat as we found several times they were closed on week-ends on Sunday.
