Stopped there twice after a meeting for dinner. Food is good and service is good as well. They have nightly specials and theme months.

My husband and I visit frequently on weeknights. There is nothing fancy or gourmet here, but meals are dependably good and the price is right. We love the salad bar, burgers and broasted chicken. We will be back!

The food here is always good and they have a varied menu. Everything from pizza to pot roast. It can be crowded and noisy. Specials are usually good.
