Decent food / decent price

If you want your basic decent food and a decent price, its a good place to go. We ate in the lounge, which needed some updating but was otherwise fine. The waitress was no nonsense in a funny way. We had a great time interacting with her.

My son had the seafood alfredo, I had their nightly special (beef tips over noodles) and the little ones had something off the children's menu. The food wasn't... More

We just had the fish fry tonight. Hubby had the Cod, I had the Lake Perch, which wasn't. My fish tasted like the breading it was fried in, there was no fish taste of any kind. Hubby's Cod tasted like it had been frozen for the last few years. The slaw was cole slaw dipped in vinegar with a bleach... More

Met my Lab puppy breeder for supper the night before I selected my new yellow hunting companion. We went to Dino's at her suggestion. Had a marvelous meal with outstanding service at a very reasonable price. I am from Nebraska, so a fine Lake Perch meal is a real treat. We talked dogs, dogs and more dogs. What a fabulous... More
