Good food and service. It was obvious this is a locals place with friendly conversations between tables. Their lasagna is terrific. Large portions.

Complimentary bread was good, steak melted in your mouth, mashed potatoes were great and veggies were not overcooked!

Ate dinner here during the middle of the week and while we were there early, 5 PM, we were the only couple there until mid-way thru our meal. The spaghetti with Italian Sweet Sausage was very good. My wife loved her Chicken Cachatatory Both meals were very large and I couldn't finish all the pasta on mine. The setting is... More

We were lucky to get a reservation because during the tree lighting weekends they do not take walk in business. The food was excellent but a little over priced. Our waitress did a great job especially considering how many people she was waiting on. I would go back but not on a tree lighting weekend.

We ate here on our second night in Leavenworth and we were not disappointed! Everyone enjoyed their food and the portions were large so we ended up with leftovers...bonus!

I made a reservation, well in advance, for 13 with1 highchair. The restaurant was unprepared,understaffed, overbooked,filthy, with tables everywhere to the point of being a safety issue. The (only)server, had to dodge occupied chairs in the very small room . Our party was seated at 2 tables. No highchair. One table he acknowledged. The other he ignored then he refused... More

The owner is a super nice older gentleman that feels like he could be your grandpa. The food follows suite. It's not flashy & you won't find any fusion or anything of the sort but you really feel like you're sitting down to a very tasty home cooked meal. Also they were very accommodating by getting us in on Xmas... More

Ate here on a Sunday evening. The food and atmosphere was great. Was very quiet some background music would have been nice. At our table we had the pear chicken salad, chicken oscar, and chicken Jerusalem all of which were enjoyed. Food and Service was great. We will be repeat customers!

A ravioli dinner does not need mashed potatoes, stuffing, and mashed yams. Who pours gravy over salmon. The food was unsightly and ver poorly prepared. The service was no better, one server actually pushed my 7 year old to the side without saying a word.
