Though an uninspiring menu, it delivers fair value. With an over broad listing, some items are solid, others bland. This suburan watering hole is more family than sports bar, with typical wall postings of local sports teams.

Have eaten here many times. Food is good. Specials rotate. Beer is good. TV viewing of football or other games is a plus.

Had an average salad here, it was not something I'd recommend, or discourage. The place is good, not great, a bit on the pricey side too.

Located in a strip mall with a grocery store, you'd miss it if you didn't know about it. Recommended by a friend, we tried it out and have added it to the list of places to eat at. Bar is large and bartenders are attentive. Waitresses were efficient and friendly. Even offered to bring a soup sample when we weren't... More

Had mahi mahi tacos that were dry and tasteless. I asked the waiter if there was supposed to be "cabbage slaw" or just dry cabbage and he said they are supposed to be that way?? Didn't offer to fix the problem. I barely ate it and he said nothing when he took the plate away. My husbands burger was greasy... More

Our golf group (15) of us ate dinner at this restaurant after playing golf in September of 2016. We had a reservation in a separate room and were seated when we arrived. We were able to get separate checks. I ordered fish tacos - some people ordered chicken, others ordered fish and my husband ordered a hamburger. The servers took... More

My husband and I both had the daily special - which was a good deal with sandwich, 2 sides and drink included. I would not recommend the onion rings. They were very greasy and small broken pieces. On Sundays kids eat free (not sure what the restrictions are). Also free ice cream! Ambiance was pretty sparce .

Went here for a work lunch. My chicken salad was good. Nothing special but the portion was large. Service is very good with attentive waitress, which makes this place stand out. This would be a good, casual after work spot for drinks.

Nice current decor. Food seemed reasonably priced, especially the "Blue Plate" specials. Shrimp scampi for $13.95 was very reasonably priced as they gave you lots of shrimp. Over spiced so much, made my mouth burn. That is not how you prepare shrimp scampi. Excellent to work with regarding my daughter's food allergies. Women's bathroom could have been much cleaner.
