The prime rib dinner was good. I expected a nicer interior for a steak house. I don't know what the upstairs restaurant was like since we were not given the option of dining there, although other patrons were. We were seated off the bar area which was noisy. The tables look like picnic tables with a burned wood motif. I'd... More

Over priced. Food is mediocre. Sweet waitress but she seemed stretched too thin. Wouldn't stop here again.

Quite reasonable for really good quality steak. Service was fast and friendly. walking distance to our motel so convenient if you have drinks before dinner and don't have to drive.

The quality of this food has plummeted! It was just awful, not family friendly and way overpriced for the poor quality. Do not waste your time or money.

Ordered an Italian dish, penne was cold and flavored with jar sauce. Lasagna was full of ricotta cheese with no meat. Chicken parm was a pretty small portion and over cooked. Tired of wasting money on food I can cook better.

Went on an early Sunday evening. Very loud bar patrons. The interior was outdated and entrees were slightly overpriced. The nachos were delicious and burgers were decent. I feel it is time for an update.

I should start by saying we were planning to go the local movie theatre and were on foot therefore our restaurant choices were limited. We were looking for somewhere to eat other than the larger chains such as Applebee's. The menu had a variety of options, surf and turf, Italian options, bar fare etc. we opted for the black and...

This restaurant is convenient to shopping and across the street from Holiday Inn Express. Wait staff was very friendly. Prices were reasonable. Soda had free refills. Local beers on tap. Great meeting place for appetizers and drinks. I'd highly suggest the stuffed mushrooms.

Thank Mary H
