My wife and I go here frequently and always enjoy our food. There has been a few situations throughout our numerous visits where there was an issue with the meal but they went above and beyond making sure they got it right. Even comping one of my wife's meals even though we told them that it wasn't necessary. Great local... More

Decided to swing into this delightful local spot for some dinner mid-week and it was outstanding. The service was stellar and the food was excellent. The only thing that keeps this from being a 5 is that they need to think about pricing. If you happen to be in the area and you want a great meal, give them a... More

I have held my review on this on until I made several visits. The food is very good menu selection is good I love the atmosphere. I will say the service is a little hit or miss, the evenings the service was not so good it appeared that they gave the servers to many tables. Having said that I will... More

I never leave this restaurant unsatisfied. They serve good quality, large portioned meals for reasonable prices. I've had many different entrees on their menu and all have been really good. They are usually crowded on the weekends but can seat a lot of people. They now take reservations which is a big improvement also. The atmosphere is cozy with many... More

This is such a great restaurant!! The portions are more than ample and the service is exemplary. The appetizers are well worth the price. Many times my husband and I have been able to make a meal out of just the appetizer. The sandwiches are overflowing and always fresh. We have never had bad service here. Our waiter or waitress...

Wide variety on the menu, steaks, pasta, seafood, ribs, burgers etc. WE eat here often, and always get our money's worth. More times than not you can't finish your meal, and end up taking half of it home. The portions are HUGE. They can accommodate couples or large groups, but anything more than 10-12 in a group might present seating... More
