Good food. Menu has something for everyone. I had the tri-trip, which was very tasty. My husband had the salmon (he said it was very good) and the boys had hamburgers The waiter was very nice and the prices seem fair.

The potatoes were very good. The veggies were okay and the sirloin was prepared medium well instead of medium. My friend had a pasta and she said it was very good. The... More

I would say I am regular here. Once a week my girlfriend and I come here. They never go wrong here. The place makes you feel like family. Kevin is our favorite guy that makes sure we get good service. Lately they have been really busy but you can tell they are really trying to provide good service. The food... More

We were going to the Gem theatre to see a play and choose Doug's Downtown Grill because it was right next to the theatre. Arriving at 6:30 the restaurant only had a few booths occupied so we thought we had plenty of time for the 8:00 play. Wrong! We told the hostess we wanted quick service and she said she... More

This is a really nice local restaurant with yummy food. We had the daily fish special (Halibut with macadamia orange sauce). The flavors were so wonderful, and the size of the serving was huge! The service was so friendly and happy. I like that. A couple of minor mishaps (forgot our appetizer but didn't charge us), but we were made... More

We were greeted when we arrived by the owner, Doug and were promptly seated. Our server, Donna, had some very nice suggestions for us, which we took her up on. Her service was great, never an empty water glass or Wine Glass, she also suggested a wine to accompany our meal, and afterward was offered a dessert and after meal... More

We had a party of six including three pre-teens and we stopped for a late lunch/early dinner. There was only one table being served at the time but when we left an hr and a half later it was busy on a Saturday night. The menu had a lot to choose from and the food was very good. I believe... More

We were out shopping for plumbing supplies and decided to stop for lunch. Wanting to support the businesses along Main st., we decided to give them a try.
