Had dinner here with my wife and a couple of our friends. A large restaurant, with booth and tables and a small counter. Good menu. They do serve wine and beer. I had a cheeseburger, which was good. I also had fries and cole slaw. Here's my problem. This restaurant is neither good nor bad. It is nothing to write... More

Fairly ok restaurant attached to the Holiday Inn in Auburn. Breakfast is available with an arrangement with the hotel. Dinner is fairly good and there is a decent wine list. Service is excellent with servers being very attentive that seem to do their best to please. There is an array of desserts with most being gigantic; consider the eclair the... More

I recommend some of the dinner items which are very good. We have eaten here many times and actually find the pastrami sandwich rather average but the dinner items very good. The menu is broad and the atmosphere is great. You can choose between a sports bar experience with the high stools and TVs or a more comfortable quiet dining... More

Stick to what they are known for and you will do alright. Full bar, drinks are okay, like the calamari. Order the pastrami reuben sandwich and you will be satisfied. Other stuff, well hit and miss. The other night, it was a hit on the sandwich and real miss on the apple pie. What is up with that pie? There... More

Since St. Patrick's Day is close at hand and none of my children like corned beef and cabbage, I treated myself to a half-sandwich on rye with no cheese and a lovely salad. Of course, it was very important to have their great sweet potato fries. Service was great and being with good friends was even better.

This is our "go to" place for a good breakfast, lunch or dinner. The salads are excellent, they serve a delicious steak and great sandwiches. And the chicken pot pie is the best I have eaten. Lots of chicken.

This place was recommended to me by a friend and had to try it. I had the reuben and a cup of soup. The corned beef was perfectly seasoned and tender and melts in your mouth.
