Variety of food. Service is great. Complimentary Homemade salsa and chips are really good. A little pricey on some of the meals but worth it. Frequent there often.

My husband and I wanted to try this restaurant cause we had friends that raved about it. We were very disappointed. The food was overpriced and really bad. We did start with the Greek/medium wings and they were good. Then came our fajitas. Just awful. I could tell as soon as they put the food down it wasn't going to... More

It had been awhile since we had eaten here . It was not very clean. In a small room just as you come in there were dirty food containers which looked like they had been there awhile, peeling wallpaper and musty smells. It was a wait but the food was on the cold side and service was really slow and... More

Right during rush hour, my husband called from Springhill Suites, for Takeout. The menus our hotel provided, prepared us for our meals: Cobb salad and creme brûlée, half a rack of bourbon ribs, corn pudding, garlic mashed potatoes, and peanut butter pie. Iced tea was bottled. Salad dressing was homemade. The meal was packed professionally and both were delicious, ready... More

A group of 14 women went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. Walking in we thought we should turn around and leave but boy what a treat. The staff was friendly and the food was awesome. We all had great meals and the desserts were fabulous. It is an old restaurant and could use a lot of... More

The lady at the front desk of the hotel recommended this place. There is a lot of variety on their menu. I had the ribs and was pleased at the taste and the tenderness. Slow cooked with my choice of bbq sauce, I tried their bourbon bbq sauce. The waiter was efficient and friendly.

We only went here because the hotel staff recommended. When we walked in the "hostess" was wrapping silverware on the counter. She told us there was a 15 min wait and after we sat down, she brought over a pager. We were taken rather quickly to a booth. The vinyl was coming apart and the place just looked old. It... More

Husband & I wanted to try this place since locals rave about it but I'm starting to see that West Virginia doesn't have decent food period, at least in the Wheeling area. He ordered shrimp & steak fajitas (which were not even fajitas, just a completely different cut of meat entirely) and I had the absolute worst cobb salad ever.... More

Sunday evening meal. The restaurant was absolutely freezing, 80 deg outside and next to freezing inside. This may have affected our enjoyment. The food was nothing to write home about. It was good but nothing great. The service was only average....thought our waiter had gone home for the night, and tipped accordingly. Liken this to a pub meal.
