Girls are dressed like they should be working at Hooters, doesn't bother me personally, but this place is supposed to be a "family restaurant" Food is ok, but wouldn't go here again to eat. Great place if you're a dude, you'll get waited on before women. Drinks are way overpriced.

Only visited this place one time and had a really good dining experience. You feel at home with the locals and the service and food was very good. Nice portion size and food was prepped good. I would advise anyone to go here if you are in town.

My relatives who live in the area recommended this restaurant. Our family of six went for dinner. Great ambiance and warmth. Our food was delayed by 45 minutes but they took 10% off the bill without our asking and apologized. The food was a mixed bag for us. The wings were bare and did not have any seasoning. The burgers... More

We had two full teams of Hockey players and parents. One was scheduled, and the other was not. They welcomed us in and set up an area for the second team. Service was very friendly and did the best they could while getting slammed with an extra 40 guests. They upstairs reserved room was very cool, reserve it if you... More

Every Sunday they have half price pizzas! I highly recommend everyone to try the new Philly Cheese Steak pizza, it has roast beef, red onion, green & red peppers, mushrooms, topped with mozzarella & provolone cheese! My favorite! #yumalicious #delicious #mill #ironrangetraditon
