Tried to dine here today, Sunday. At least two parties were being held. Suppose to open at 11:30 according to a coupon we had. We were there at 3:00 and were informed that they usually open at 4:00 but would not be opening til 5 today. When I showed the woman the coupon she said "That's Wrong!" Okay...but where did... More

My husband and I recently attended a birthday party here. We enjoyed the buffet luncheon enough to make plans to come back again for dinner.

I joined my friends at a fairly large reserved table and we were served quickly in this old tavern. The food was inexpensive due to a special they were running and it was beef for most of us. Apparently all the retired local people know the night of the really cheap special because it was packed with elderly people using... More

Have been here several times for banquets but this was my first time in the regular dining room for dinner. Overall the food was great and the atmosphere good. The only issue was at the end when I used the bathroom on the way out. This area is definitely in need of a major renovation and some cleaning to remove... More

Dinner with friends on a Sunday afternoon. Restaurant was moderately busy, but there were empty tables scattered around so I don't think reservations would have been necessary. We did enjoy having a live classical guitar player in the dining room who was also singing, not the best but it was nice. The food was average at best. I chose the... More

We go there often. They have deals during the week and the selection is large. We enjoy it very much and like the owners and the staff. There is some seafood, but it's not the feature.

We were there with family after restaurant week but the offerings were still available. What can I say...the food is sooooo good. I had Chicken Florentine served over just enough pasta to go with the delicious spinach cream sauce without overwhelming the plate. My husband & another family member had Prime rib which is what they're known for. Appetizer &... More
