“Good Food Awful Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Admittedly we were a large group (10 people) but the server seemed clueless. Had no rhyme nor reason to how she took orders, delivered orders or handled the bill. She didn't know the menu well and in between, she was largely missing. It was good food but very disconcerting service. Food was perhaps a 4, and the service barely a 1.

“Excellent meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It was a big pricey, but our food was excellent.
This is a great place for a nice family meal to celebrate a special occasion or romantic dinner date. We had our son with us this visit and he enjoyed his meal too even though it seems a bit of a "grown up" type place.

“Better than expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

It was typical bar food, friendly waitstaff. Seemed like a local hangout. The food was decent, best of the trip. We got almost kicked out very early, but that seemed typical of the entire town. Good for a lunch or a simple dinner. Not too noisy for being there at 8:30 on a Friday night.

“Go At the Dinner Time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We went at lunchtime and there wasn't much to offer. But it looked as though another room was open and that they had options for their dinner menu.

“Great Atmosphere and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

A wonderful stop for a quiet dinner with the wife. Great service, plentiful food that was very good and the all you can eat peel and eat shrimp was a hit.
