The food was very good as was the service. Recommend the Eggplant Fries...Prices are very reasonable and the menu has something for everyone.

There was 4 of us. 3 ordered appetizers the other a regular menu item. We had leftovers consisting of a boneless chicken finger and two potatoe skins. Asked for a take out box and we were told no take out on appetizers. They would rather throw out the food than let you take home food you paid for.

We have eaten here a few times and its always okay. The roast beef isnt what it used to be when it was on Newport Ave. Either is the fish. They have different priced apps if you eat them at the bar. The drink specials are good and apps are decent. I had a few meals that just passed the... More

Large pours of wine, huge, crispy portions of chicken in both the Chicken Parmesan and the Smoky Mountain Chicken sandwiches -- delicious! The other two in our party had cheeseburger clubs, which they also ate every bite of! Two notes: when I asked for a salad instead of the fries, the waitress said I would have to pay the add-on...

Stopped by for dinner after Xmas shopping on black Friday. Ordered pork chops that came to the table sizzling over sliced potatoes and onions. The pork chops were overcooked which they usually seem to be in a lot of restaurants (in fairness). The potatoes with onions were excellent. My mother ordered roast beef w mashed potatoes. The roast beef was... More

My Mother and I stopped in for dinner last week. Although I have only been in there once about six months ago, I would believe the decor hasn't changed at all in years. Its a homey locals place and that is fine. The food was good, large portions for a great price. I enjoy good food and the portion size... More
