The presentation was great....the steak had a smell of liver and old blood. It was tough, even though they cooked it to med rare. Even the french fries were under... More

I also had the salad bar and there was so much to choose from. Everything looked and tasted fresh. I could have made a meal with... More

Love the choices and the food is always fresh. It gets a little crowded on Sunday when the church crowd is in, but that just makes it more friendly.

Burger PERFECTION!!! The BBQ Bacon Cheddar Burger is a half-pound of perfectly cooked, fresh ground, chopped steak, gooey melted cheese, Chipotle BBQ, caramelized onions, and thick cut, hickory smoked bacon on a Kaiser bun. This Burger is melt in your mouth juicy, cheesy, salty, and a tender masterpiece. The pillowy bun seems to melt with each bite, and the ratio... More

I always enjoy the Salad Bar - it is always filled with a great selection of fresh veggies, assorted salads, fresh fruit and I love their great assortment of salad dressings. The soups are fantastic and the sweet potatoes are the best!

I use to really enjoy this place. For my daughter's sweet 16 lunch I brought her here and after ten minutes of watching a manager and one server walk past us (in the filled train car of which were being served quickly) we decided on just the salad bar so we could serve ourselves. I had a question about the... More

We were looking for a good steak diner on a Friday night and we got what we were looking for! We both got the prime rib special that is offered Friday through Sunday. The meat was cooked to perfection. The salad bar offered a good variety and was very fresh. Do save room for desert!! The cakes are extremely good... More

In the area for weekend trip. Looking for a quick spot in area of hotel. Good rec from Hampton and we tried it. Excellent burger, frankly, one of best I've had. Bacon and blu-cheese. Cooked perfectly (as requested). Very nice salad bar. Menu looked good, not creative, but solid fare. I'd definitely go back if in the area. No alcohol... More
