I have never been unhappy with the food- it is always amazing and the portions are great! They are kind of famous for their turkey sandwiches- must try one if you are in the area!

The strike and spare is a smoke free establishment with the best turkey sandwiches you would ever eat. Happy hour is great, from 3-6 pm daily, yes daily. Beers $1.25 for a pint and yummy snacks for $4.00. A favorite place for us to visit.

The food was good. Sandwiches were large and filling. Drinks from the bar were terrible. Very little alcohol in them and pricey.

Look at my review on Google and you will never eat there again as the waitress and manager were very rude and condescending.

Dry dry dry turkey and the roast beef is just deli block. Just okay. The soup is more like turkey gravy. They should use some of that broth to roast a moister turkey. Fries Hoo Hum.

Bland food and expensive prices. They boast about cooking real turkey though so I guess that's how they justify it.

While they gave us a lot of food on the humungous sandwich, it was flavorless for the most part. My sandwich had sauerkraut on it, which is supposed to be tangy. I saw it, but could barely taste it. They need to season their food so there's some flavor to it. Also, they're quite expensive. And, the atmosphere is boring.

This place offers good food in large quantities for great prices. They specialize in a variety of toasted sandwiches. You can go with some friends or call in an order to go.

A town legend. I recommend the Pork and Bull or prime rib sandwiches. it's a bit of a way-back machine experience, time has definitely stood still in the restaurant but once you taste the food you won't care.
