AYCE Ribs!

AYCE Ribs and bread shrimp! So delicious. You do want to call ahead for reservations. It does get into be a long wait if you don't have them. The staff is friendly. And definitely try an old fashioned!

We go for fish fry ( and you need a reservation) and you will still probably have to wait. Service is ok, maybe not the best but - not horrible. Staff is friendly and the restaurant is more like your Grandma's basement but they have good food and it has always been hot and fresh when we have gone! They... More

Took my mother in law for a fish fry. We were told 30 minutes wait time. 2 hours and ten minutes later we got seated after 6 times asking the hostess. Other people complained that came in after us and we're seated before us. Take outs were going out the door like wildfire. Terrible, terrible service.

Our first time here in quite a few years was a waste of precious hours. Although we were told by some "regulars" that it was unusually busy on this Friday, we had no idea we would be waiting 2 hours for mediocre food. There has not been any updating to this basement feeling place with food in the 9 years... More

We visited here on a Tuesday, early evening, around 5:15. We had a party of five. I called ahead and was told there would probably be a wait if we didn't get there by 5:30. We were seated right away, but at a table pushed diagonally into a corner. It was a tight squeeze for my daughter and me, as... More

Atmosphere was similar to my grandpas basement. Food was a bit bland. Waitress was very friendly. Won't be back.

You can't beat this place. Only one thing that are is, if you are over 6 foot you may need to duck to get to your table. Other than that it is the best value for delicious food that I have ever had by far. Went somewhere else a few weeks ago, cost 50% more and the the food wasn't... More

Glad we made reservations as the place was packed for a Wednesday for all you care to eat ribs, fried perch and boiled shrimp. Everyone in my party enjoyed the home style cooking and saved room for raspberry cheesecake made by the owner. Not many options for a vegetarian other than a plain baked potato and house salad. Pretty drive... More

This place is hard to find, but well worth the trip. It reminds me of those small northern Wisconsin lakeside places. They have nightly specials. Wednesday night you can have bbq rib, peel and eat shrimp or/ perch. You can even mix and match. The staff is very helpfull. The old fashions are out of this world. The place is... More
