Good food good price but loud!

Good food served quickly. Great price. But if you want to talk it will be hard. Very large, crowded and loud. Felt like even our server tried to avoid talking much!

From the children's menu, our grandson had a grilled cheese, milk & a yummy apple, raisen & yogurt salad. The 5 adults had: bacon cheeseburger, Cheddars Club sandwich, Monte Cristo sandwich, rack of ribs & Key West chicken &... More

Ate here while out-of-town on business. The service was good and the food was delicious, enough to carry home 1/2 of it for later. I can't figure out how they provide such large dishes for a low price! Worth your time to check out.

Since we are moving all the family ate here. It has been a favorite of ours for 20 years. Wonderful variety salads, seafood, steak combos, hamburgers.
