Seems like a fun place to hang out, drink and dine, and with that in mind, the food doesn't need to be spectacular, and it wasn't. French onion soup not so french, and the ribs where a bit disappointing and a little pricey....actually, mine are better! Have had better BBQ but they have games and stuff to keep kids (and... More

We decided to try this restaurant strictly because if the outside. Looked like a fun, inviting place. Upon entering, we were very disappointed. My husband said, "this is the perfect place for the tv show, Restaurant Makeover! Inside does it match the inviting facade... We didn't expect much but we ended up being pleasantly surprised by the food. I had... More

From the outside it looks really good. If you are looking for Texas Roadhouse or Daves BBQ don't expect too much cause you will be disappointed. The sauce tasted like bullseye not a homemade blend, which would have been nice. The mashed potatoes were home made but the gravy was Heinz. Overall not bad but don't expect too much so... More

I was there recently right when the restaurant opened. There were maybe 3 other families in the place. My mother had ordered the eggplant parm sandwich and I had ordered the chicken parm sandwich. The food was hot, the portion was a nice size, but it seemed to take along time to come to the table. Also, there was little... More

Wasn't terrific. Food was good. Ribs were dry. I liked that they brought dill pickles with your menus instead of bread and butter. The baked beans were delicious. Decent menu to choose from. Just wish the ribs weren't so dry.

Has a very nice & inviting exterior, but I recommend that you KEEP ON DRIVING! Food was overpriced $35 for 2 sandwiches that were not hot, screaming kids, filthy carpet and slow service!

Stopped in for lunch on our way from Maryland to western Massachusetts. Unimpressive. everything about this place was average, the food was OK, but did not stand out, the service was slow but they did eventually bring us what we ordered, the decor was fair, but it seemed kind of grubby. We'd pick someplace else next time through.

The food was average but the staff are not friendly. We sat at the table waiting for someone to take our order but no one came for over 20 minutes. The other waiters passed us like we were invisible. Plus their outfit is kinda trashy. They have on t shirts and shorts. Not professionally dress. I would not go again.

We took my mom there for her 82nd birthday. Told the hostess and she was like well we only have 2 servers on so I don't know if we can sing for her. We were seated and ordered. Food took forever to come and out of the 4 meals we ordered the waitress only brought three. About 20 minutes later... More
