The food was good as always and the wait staff friendly. It is a place where friends gather and nobody is a stranger for long. The band, "The Classics" always provide great music on the weekends!

Thanks for a relaxing Monday night and our bartender with the beautiful wavy hair was awesome. Burger was good, ribs a little disappointing but Chaz and George Jones piano player was a treat and the gin & tonics were excellent!!! Happy Holidays !!

The first night I had the rare rib - wonderful, and the second the lasagne, which was good but the salad that came with it was a meal in itself! The staff... More

We stayed across the street, so location was convenient. The outside didn't give an indication how special the entertainment and food would be, but we loved everything! Service was great, too!
