One of my favorite places to go for good to great food, reasonable prices and old fashioned, quiet (no blaring TV's and noisy fans), retro ambiance dinning! Absolutely delicious Crab Balls Appetizer and Spegetti & Meat sauce that rivals any Italian restaurant! Plus, friendly and efficient service!

We stopped in for dinner, the place was clean and comfortable. The service was fast and friendly. We each had a sirloin steak and a crab cake, the steak was o.k. nothing special but then again it wasn't bad either. The crab cakes however were VERY good. The prices were reasonable, everything was served fresh and HOT. Not a bad... More

We have always had good good here. They now have a family karaoke night once a month that is a great time. Drinks are available using the bloomery plantation sweet shine and you should try them.

My spouse ate here on a previous business trip and insisted that I try it out. I'm really glad I did. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. I tried one of their "SweetShine" drinks, which was pricey but extremely good. No need to order anymore drinks, the SweetShine sure packs a punch. My husband and I both got steaks... More

My wife an I ordered two burgers, the cheese stuffed burger and the burger with pulled pork on top. They were both way over cooked, shriveled up to about half the size of the bun. Tasted bad also. Price was about $10 per plate. Had way better at McD's.

This is a very style restaurant. It does not rise to the quality of a premium steak house, but everything was properly cooked, had good flavor and the service was attentive. You'll get a decent meal here, but it won't put the town on any maps.

Our server was very attentive when we first arrived but once the food came she only checked back twice. My sandwich was just average and my husbands NY Strip didn't have much taste at all (but it was tender). It smelled like cigarette smoke when we first sat down but they don't allow smoking in restaurants.

We are new to Charles Town and we were looking for a nice dining experience. Our bill was close to $100 but the quality of the food was not worth the high price. My partner had a chicken dish that was sub-par, but my burger was pretty good (yet it does not beat Five Guys). The drinks are expensive but... More
