Excellent food and large portions. Best fish fry and fries we've had in a very long time! The other menu items looked wonderful as well! Everyone in our party was very pleased with their food. However, the service was mediocre. The young waitress seemed to be fairly new and had a difficult... read more

My wife and I have been here several times. We're always greeted at the door and the service has been great. I can highly recommend the Italian nachos and the baked penne. They also serve a mean cocktail.

I went to this restaurant a week ago Wednesday with my daughter and her husband. Had heard good and bad things on this site about the place. We were met by Mike's father and were very warmly invited in on such a ugly night from the weather. He explained the menu and all of the favorites and gave great recommendations.... More

The staff caters to your every need with personal, friendly care. The menu is minimal but all was delicious! It is a bit out of the way, but well worth the drive.

The trip must include the Bacon & pepperoni soup. It's my favorite thing on the menu. We have been away for a year or so since they remodeled. Personally we preferred the old menu, but the owner is alway accommodating.

Went to school with the owner and chef. My wife and i lived in oak creek and would visit there regularly. Great food for the price and far beyond it. I think the small size is a plus I love small diners and restaurants. Soups are to die for.
