No 3 hour boat ride needed.

Nice friendly bar, great selection of beer that was spot on nice and cold. Friendly bartenders and about the best prime rib I can ever recall eating out. (I ate at the bar) Which was just right in terms of noise and atmosphere. Lots of people just enjoying themselves.

First let me say that our food and service were quite good. Based solely on that experience, I truly would've given a 5 rating. The table beside us had an issue and the manager, who said his name is John, was passively rude & impersonal with that table. So much so, that it really hampered our experience. I don't think...

Every time we've been there, we have had a good meal. The service is good and it's a nice atmosphere. A great "go-to" place for a night out without being too fancy.

Went here on a very busy night in Cen Penn after long wait times at 2 other restaurants. Called here, wait 25 minutes in their very large dining area for large group. Waitress very friendly, quickly brought drinks and appetizers followed. Took over an hour from being seated to receive our main entree. Food was generously portioned, hot french fries,... More

We came here fairly late at night, after the restaurant portion was closed. At that time of night it became a seat-yourself situation in the bar area. Seating was tight and we had to wait a while for a table/booth to open up. This was pretty annoying because they had the entire restaurant section just closed off. I don't see... More

Visited this restaurant for the first time recently and let me say that I was not at all impressed. The staff was not very friendly at all. Being hospitable was not really of their concern it seemed. We ordered an appetizer and two meals. The menu itself does not have much that you wouldn't find at an average restaurant. For... More
