“Topless Dancers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Food average and the dancers are the draw. Girls push for tips, so don't go unless you want to tip the girls to dance for you.

“Nice place, if a bit cheezy.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Firstly, this is NOT a family joint. It's a strip club. You have to be 21 or older just to get in. The cuisine is pretty good, especially the half-price burgers on Sunday. I prefer the prime rib, Billy's Steak Bite Salad, and the burgers. All are good. The smoking area is in a glassed-off area as per Virginia law. The dancers are attractive, but nothing special - mostly barely-legal princesses born in the late 1980s. So yeah, decent everything; just don't expect Trump Taj Mahal.

“For a cabaret bar, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I stop by around once every month or so and do the prime rib special, a huge 20-oz portion of pretty good quality Prime Rib with all the trimmings for about $15. The place is a cabaret bar, so there are female dancers in g-strings and pasties, however, the place itself actually has decent quality food and reasonable drink prices. The Prime Rib I believe is only served on Fri-Sat from 4 p.m. or so on.

“Nice surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Good food. Though my waitress was unfriendly, her service was very quick and accomodating (MUCH better than a slow, friendly one!). Also, the 'entertainment' was a nice surprise; I really had no idea that they had a 'dance floor' until I stepped inside.

“Food was average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

The food in this restaurant but the real attraction for this place is that it is a strip club. Not a family restaurant and is not known for its cuisine.
