Wow, better than usual. Tonight the onion pedal was not swimming in grease, bread was fresher than normal, potato was hot, and the sirloin was excellent.

Had the prime rib tonight. Very good. Salad and baked potatoe were fresh and tasty. Rolls are always good. BUT, it was really noisy. That is the worst thing about it.

The food was quite good and reasonably priced, but the music was very loud. Periodically, the volume was cranked up to a deafening level. We complained to the member of the wait staff who served us and she explained that they had to turn up...More
