What's not to like

If you are looking for a great up north dinner club look no farther.It is non-descript from the out side and that should be your first clue. this dinner club is an icon in the region. when we arrived for Friday night fish fry there was a one hour waiting line. We found seats at the bar and listened... read more

We stopped in for the Friday Fish Fry for our first ever visit. The atmosphere was definitely old school and kinda cool, but the food did not impress. Family serving style was fine and the service was quite good, but the Potato Salad was very bland, the Cole Slaw was only so-so and the frys were undercooked. The fish was... More

Started out with rather poor service. Waitress wasn't sure what wines or beers were available and we had to keep requesting soda refills as they were very very small glasses. The food was marginal and nothing special. However, the worst part of our dining experience was when we found a large bug on the potato pancake plate! The waitress hustled... More

Our visit to this restaurant was the second...the first being 8 years ago. Both times we were pleased and it our expectations with high marks. It's a little off the beaten path, but worth finding. We enjoyed the garlic/mushroom stuffed sirloin steak and the vegetable pasta parmesan - both full meals with sides and prepared to perfection. This restaurant has... More

This was our third year going up the area and have had good food for the most part but we noticed it was not as busy and the service this year was a disappointment. We were seated at our table for 20 min before we even got something to drink and it was not packed at all like in the... More

You can't beat the price, especially when you are footing the bill! The Sunday special "all you can eat" family style broasted chicken dinner is a real value. You get broasted chicken, 2 types of bread, American potato salad, tuna salad, cole slaw and cranberry relish all decent quality (think grocery deli) along with mashed potatoes (so-so) & some not-good...

$10.95 all you can eat fish (haddock), not bad for a friday fish fry. Bartenders were great with local live music. The place gets busy so be prepared to wait a bit.

Known for Friday night fish fry's. Don't think quality was as good as it was years ago and service was much worse. Waitress was very nice but real slow and place wasn't that crowded.
