I know the salad bar is a little "old school" but it sure is good! Love the roasted peppers! Hot soup and fresh warm breads. This place has become our "Cheers" in the area and we love it. The menu is huge and they always have a great daily specials page. Dave is classically trained and has been all over... More

I don't understand how you can't enjoy a meal here. Even if the entree isn't perfect, the salad bar has everything you could want. I rarely easy much of my entree because I'm stuffed already. Today the salmon, which can be hit or miss in inland areas was excellent here tonight. We will be back.

Been to the restaurant several times and have always had an excellent meal. The salad bar and soup and bread is wonderful. The scallops are absolutely delicious. Pretty restaurant with accommodating staff. Big portions of chicken parm. House scampi with artichokes and shrimp was yummy, good flavors

Was recommended by other restaurant owner. Food selection, portion and taste was very good. Decent size salad bar and selection. Attentive service. Well priced. Just off Rt 4. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

One of these days I'll learn to order the salad bar and be satisfied. The entire are quite good, but once you've torn through the salad bar, the soup, and all the specialty salads, you don't have room! The steaks are very good, and the penne with vodka was great.

I'm a big fan of "old-fashioned", so to me, the place is charming. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. The food is not up to par, though. Although the shrimp on the salad bar should be a big plus, it was strange. Rather water-logged and with a sort of grainy texture. I'm not sure what's up with that. The... More

Draft beer and drinks well prepared and the salad bar was well stocked with all fresh items. Our dineer was delivered in a timely fashion and the waitstaff was very attentive and freindly (what more could you ask for). Just to nit-pick with one small piece of feedback - the salad tong look like they could use to be washed... More
