It is like stepping back in time. A locals timeless eating place. Food is good to very good. There are daily specials. I got burger with Blue Cheese and it was great. The soup I got had no flavor. Service was fast and friendly. The bar area was friendly and busy. Regulars were coming and going. A nice place to... More

Amazing seafood. Good family atmosphere. We tried a little bit of everything and it was all good. The crab soup was the best thing we ate there. Friendly and efficient service.

The food has been great each and every time I've been there. Daily specials, great burgers (they're huge) and I can't wait to go back and get a crab cake.

I belive that being part of a tour group has no bearing on the quality of the meal or special treatment we received. There were a number of locals dining in this split room bar and dining area. Check out their website to see their full menu.

Once ordered we had to ask for drink refills for the 1st round. 2nd round no one came to our table so I went to the bar to ask... More

After your first visit you come back as family. Located right off of I-68, perfect stop for the traveler or travelling family. Good food, good drink, good fellowship, good... More

The restaurant is a clean, well-lit place that sort of reminds one of those places where everybody knows your name. My husband and I were recently on a Monday night. There were a few tables filled with families and friends. There were numerous playing TV's in the room. I'm not sure who was paying any attention to them. We were... More
