Been meaning to stop here for months now. Finally got the chance. A really nice menu with a great variety. The four if us each got the kielbasa dinner. It came with two good size slices of meat, sour kraut, red potatoes, green beans, horseradish,...More

The warm welcome at the door and the friendliness of the server makes it. Except for the tomato bisque, which was awesome, the food was not great. The sizzler was not tasty and was a little tough and the green beans were undercooked. Our friends...More

Good local restaurant with a pretty good sized menu to please most people. Have been for lunch and dinner and had good service for both. A touch off the main drag but worth it.

Last night I had the sandwich, "what the cluck" . All I can say is WOW! This was a fantastic burger, and they served it up with tater tots! The girls that work there are fantastic and it is a fun place to hang.

This is a local bar/grill that seems like it's set in the 60's (which is a good thing!) Great service, varied menu (not just burgers!). We eat here about every other month and one of our favorites is the sizzler. Now we all know sizzlers...More

I have been here before but went back again as the food is always good. Try the Dagwood as it has about a pound of meat on a triple decker sandwich. $10 and it is more than enough for two. Service is super and staff...More
