Dinner at The Great American Saloon

Excellent steak dinner served by friendly staff (who one would expect in Red Lion). Reasonable pricing across the board.

We were here recently to celebrate my granddaughters 11th birthday. We told her that she could pick the restaurant and this was her first choice. There were 6 of us in our party and we ordered a variety of meals and drinks. The portions were so generous that most of us had enough leftovers to make another meal. I got... More

We patronize The GREAT AMERICAN SALOON approximately 10 times a year. We were there a couple weeks ago and I noticed a server delivering a HUGE rack of ribs to another table. I had never sampled their ribs, but this rack made my mouth water. I ordered them and was not disappointed. Went back a week later, last Thursday evening,... More

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 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
