Had the special for the evening (Bourbon Steak) which was cooked perfectly and very tasty. Hot outside so AC was welcome. Staff was polite but no smiles and kind of Blah.

The meal was very good the atmosphere is laid back. We all enjoyed our meals and the water glasses were kept full. Don't go here for fast food, go for a very good sandwich, yummy cheesecake and bread pudding.

Went here a few times and the service continued to get worse. We will never be back. If you choose to try anyway, turn around if Becca is working! She gives terrible service amd obviously doesn't care about customers/repeat customers/tips.

This is a place locals visit. We had the ribeye steak with sweet potatoes and broccoli. We were very pleased. The ribeye was done to our preference perfectly. The sweet potato was a wonderful touch and the broccoli was not overcooked; it was bright green and just a little firm. Perfect! What a delight to have such a delicious dinner.

my wife and I are addicted to the Friday night special prime rib! It is prepared to personal perfection and the taste is fantastic. Other great dishes are available and the drinks compliment the meal.

The prime rib is cooked to perfection on Friday & Saturday nights. The servers are excellent quick and friendly. They also have alternatives for diabetics. I had prime rib with a baked sweet potato.
