Certainly not fancy but always dependably good American food which is always available @ G. Subu's Leather Bottle! My husbands choice of a 6 ounce tenderloin prepared perfectly rare along with salad & fresh steamed vegetables hit the spot. I chose an occasional treat: calves liver smothered in onions and some delicious sweet potato fries to share. The warm buttery... More

We do a family Christmas Dinner at G Subus every year. There are 45-50 people. The staff does a awesome job every year. My favorite dish is fillet. Everyone is happy with their meal. There are a couple people that are tough to please. Everything runs smooth every time at G Subu's.

Haven't been here in years, we decided to give it another try. Ordered spaghetti and lasagna both came with salads and very over done bread. Bread was hard, butter even harder, when I asked if bread was always this hard, waitress responded with, "some of it is". We were the only customers at four in the afternoon and can't understand...

Over the past 20 years we've eaten here about 7 or 8 times. Every time we come to the same conclusion - it's a good place to fill your belly but it is not fine dining by any means. On the plus side, the chicken fingers appetizer is excellent but the entrees were very lackluster, like the quality you would... More

The pasta is made fresh and shipped to the restaurant daily. The staff are always friendly. My wife loves their alfredo sauce. They run daily specials, I usually order from the specials menu. They have a full service bar that includes ice cream drinks like Pina Colada. They also have numerous beers on tap. If you go, try the stuffed... More

Even though I was there for a memorial meal, they (the staff) was very accommodating to all who were there. The food wasn't bad (family style meal). Plus they didn't "kick" anyone out because of time constraints. Enough parking even if there were a lot of people. Think Penna's, but on a smaller scale.

A favorite spot for our family and friends to meet for good food, a drink or two at the bar with a appetizer, or to have a pizza. Fairly priced and very generous portions. Weekends feature quality entertainment to enjoy with your meal.

Absolutely love the food and friendly atmosphere. The steaks are delicious and so much tastier than places that charge twice as much. Never had a bad meal there. The soups are made fresh every day and all are delicious also. They also have some pretty good daily specials if you want something more casual.

Every dish imaginable is on the menu and every dish is substandard. I think this restaurant remains in business due to loyal neighborhood patrons who really don't care about quality food. In fact, we were there because our 82 year old friend who lives nearby insisted we dine there.
