A group of boaters from Sunset Marina called on Saturday night just before 7 PM to order 7 burger baskets. We were told by Matt in a way less than friendly tone that we couldn't order, he was going to shut down the kitchen at...8. A couple things here.....Your website says serving till 9 and regardless it shouldn't take even the worst of kitchens an hour to make 7 burgers. I'm not sure who this Matt guy is but if he is the owner, you run a piss poor show and if he's the manager, he needs to find another line of work. I am going to do you a huge favor though. Seeing as is you obviously don't want any business, I will personally post a message on our marina Facebook page to make sure everyone knows to take their business elsewhere. This is a group people that most always order out or eats out every Friday and Saturday afternoon and evening during the boating season. The really good news for everyone in that area is that the Riverview Restaurant on John Deere Road is open, the food is excellent and they are open the hours that they say they are going to be and they actually appreciate your business.More

My daughter (12) went there for dinner . Had not been there in at least 10 years and won’t be back. The patty melt had no flavor.. portobello mushrooms was not bad but too much salt was put on them .. daughter got artichoke dip...she got a halve cup with pita bread food in my opinion was sub - par but what pissed me off the most was when the waitress went out side during a rain Storm and came back in bringing her Oder of the pot she was smoking outside within eye site of us was enough ! Called and reported what went on next morning said they have a talk with her witch tells me there really not concerned about it … never again will I spend money in there !More

We had been to City Limits a few years ago and thought the food and atmosphere were quite good. However, this time it was a different story. The place was practically empty at 6:00 p.m. and now we know why. The food was very disappointing....We really looked forward to the "famous" tenderloin sandwiches after reading the menu description. They were actually dry, hard, and flavorless, served on a wimpy hot dog bun, and the lettuce was so wilted it looked like cooked spinach. The potato chips were good. The waitress was attentive (she had very little else to do). I had asked about the meatloaf "special" but found that the vegetables served with it were canned. No thanks! We mentioned our experience to friends who live in the area and they said it had really gone downhill after the change in ownership. We would not go back and do not recommend.More

Our group of 6 were all happy with their selections. We mostly went for the sandwiches, I had the BLT which had just the right amount of bacon. I think the potato salad is a great find. The grilled pork tenderloin looked great. The Buffalo...Chicken salad was so big that the left over almost didn't fit in the take-out box! The friendly waitress offered to bring another container of dressing to take home. Our group agreed it was a great place for lunch.More

This place has a old school vibe with bar style food. Nothing fancy. Not a whole lot of effort into flavor. I’m certain I can do better cooking at home. The cheese fries are drenched in runny cheese. Can’t even taste or see a fry...in all the cheese. My salad wasn’t bad but it was a wedge salad. A 8$ small wedge salad. My children ordered Mac and cheese and fries. Typical for their age. However, one of the macs came out a little crunchy while the other was nice and creamy. I don’t think this is a return place. Only main positive was our waitress was awesome. She was kind and attentive!More

Neat and clean small restaurant with bright and sunny rooms. Basic comfort food is served along with cocktails and beer. Service is generally pretty good and plenty of parking. Great place to take the family as it is also moderately priced.

The first and last time the wife and I were here was way back in 2012. If we experience bad service or food, we never go back. And this is one of those eateries that we have avoided. We were given a coupon to this...place and thought what the heck. We got there about 4:30pm and sat, and sat, and sat. Flagged a waitress who informed us that she would be right back. Didn't happen. She proceeded to sit down at another table with customers and never looked our way again. When we flagged another waitress, she offered us popcorn to bide the time. Others came in after us and got waited on. It was as If we were invisible. Bad service by management and staff will keep me away forever.More

We thought that Breakfast was served until noon. We were told that breakfast had just ended. The waitress could see the look on our faces and my dad was really looking forward to a breakfast meal. He told her that he had come all the...way from California to eat breakfast. Well she was great. She said you came all the way from California and you will get your breakfast. My dad ate his eggs, toast, and bacon that mid - morning. The manager came over to see how we liked the food. The pork tenderloin sandwich was great. The french fries were steak fries. I love large fries. Service was great and the staff went out of their way to please.More

My daughter needed something to eat, she's going to have a baby, and she was on her lunch break. We went in and said we were on limited time, would it be possible to get something good, not fried and quick. The waitress was happy...to take our order, suggest a good meal and take care of us. A few minutes later we had homemade tasty sitting right in front of us. So good and my daughter got fed, with good food and done in time to make it back from lunch. I was so pleased, two days later looking for some breakfast with my husband, I suggested to go here. It was once again quick, delicious and the staff is so friendly. It has now become one of my favorites.More

Met here for a large family gathering of 17 people. Our family meets around the holidays and we have a hard time either getting seated, having all of our meals out and ready at the same time and hot (not luke warm because it sat...waiting for all the rest of the meals to be prepared), or unfriendly, inattentive staff. We were seated early, the wait staff was on top of our drink orders and told us what the special was for the day. Drinks came quickly and food was out fairly quickly considering the size of our group. The salads were huge, hot beef sandy's has huge, and the berry apple cobbler was enough for two large adults. It was topped off with a large scoop of ice cream. I got the chicken sandwich with cheese, artichokes and it had good flavor and was piping hot.Drinks were refilled quickly. No complaints from anyone in our group about their meal. A first for our picky group.More

I've never seen one there. They have a large room in the back but they would have to close the entire establishment down. I don't think they'll do that.
