“Consistently good all around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

My family has been to this restaurant many times, and almost every time we were very pleased with the service and the food, as well as the atmosphere. It's nice, but not too stuffy or expensive, much more casual. Pretty clean too. Anyway, as a group we have tried most of the dishes on the menu, and the majority of them were very good. I must say though, their salads are just OK, but their Caesar salad was below par, and I was upset one time when there was a piece of plastic in mine that I didn't notice until I almost swallowed it. That was definitely not good, but that was the only time that was unsatisfactory. You should definitely try their desserts, they are absolutely divine!! Also, the crepes on the breakfast menu were so good.

“Friendly service, good food, AWESOME desserts.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

This is the first restaurant we tried for dinner when we came to visit a few months back. We went on a Friday and their specials are Prime rib which is my husband's favorite and oysters which is mine. We were not disappointed. The staff is friendly and the menu has a lot to choose from. We went tonight and my husband had the Prime rib and clams special. DELICIOUS!! The clams were incredible. We had the peanut butter cup pie and that was also very good. We will be coming back as regulars now that we have moved here. Our waitress was very sweet and so was the hostess.

“Never ever go back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Took 2 11 yr old girls on a Mon night there were only about 15 people total when we walked in. It took 20 min for our drinks. Lemonade was water squirted w/lemon ..horrible so kids switched to soda. Ordered famous chips " before" meal waited over 30 min it all came together. One kid never received cottage cheese w/her meal waitress not ONE time returned to our table, tried to get her attention...no luck.drinks remained empty, saw a manager wondering and chattg ....we were not important enough I guess! When asked about the cottage saying it was not brought hope its not on the bill - her reply was "oh I realized it but forgot so I took it off" WTH IS THAT???

“Big and good breakfast.”

The pancakes here are really good. 3 pancakes and eggs, bacon, and sausage is really good. The service wasn't all that good but still an enjoyable meal.
