“lousy liver, pretty waitress.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

service was good but food is bland at best, more of a pub than a restaurant, but they should stick to frozen tv dinners or hire a cook

“A great restaurant and gathering place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

This is a great choice for lunch or dinner for families or friends. While in town to visit our college-student daughter, we had a late lunch here. It was very busy on a saturday but we were seated in about 5 minutes. The service was personable but not over-bearing. It was crowded, so it was pretty loud in there, making conversation a tiny bit harder. But at least that wasn't because they were blaring obnoxious music. It's just full of people (family groups mostly, it seemed) having loud conversations. Extensive menus for beer, wine, and food. In our party, we ordered 4-cheese cheeseburger, sliced steak sandwich, Hawaiian pizza, and chicken Caesar salad,with a shared appetizer of hummus and pita bread. Portions were oversized (almost everyone had leftovers) and the food was very good. Prices were in the $$ range (burgers were $9). The onion rings were great! We would definitely go back. Bonus -- they have their own parking lot so street parking may be avoided.

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

Have eaten here quite a few times for lunch and once for dinner. It is always busy, but worth the wait. The food is always great, with good portions and reasonable prices. The noise level can be pretty high, and for this reason I prefer it as a lunch/casual location to dinner.
