Dinner Sunday night was a zoo. Granted there were lots of families and kids in town for the Polar Express, but running wild in the restaurant. Had read good reviews but NO. My food was super salty and the atmosphere was awful noisy and kids running back and forth. No thanks. Try the Mexican restaurant in town. Good. Or The... More

We were pressed for time for a 5pm Polar Express and the staff was great in ensuring our party of 10 was served with great food and care in a timely manner. Mary was our wait staff and she was simply outstanding! Well worth the dining adventure and we will return in the future.

Had dinner on Halloween night. Service was great and my food was good, also prices were reasonable. I didn't know till after i ordered that u can order lunch items for dinner. That is a even better value if you aren't wanting a huge meal.

This is a very popular local restaurant that his hard to get a table. It is not too expensive and the food was interesting. The portions were huge and we could have split an entre.

First of all, want to say that the service was excellent. It was the food that was bad. Had the grouper which was terrible, looked and tasted like rubber. The philly steak sandwich was not very good either. Caesar salad again just ok. Not much dressing, not much taste. Would not recommend to others and would not dine there again.

Description
We are a family owned and operated all American steak and seafood restaurant that specializes in hand pattied beef, buffalo, and elk burgers, hand cut steaks, and fresh seafood. Since we opened in 1978 in Tampa Florida by my father, we have been believers in keeping things fresh, fairly priced, and family friendly.

Hey this is jimmy from jimmy macs, and wanted to say how sorry we are to hear about you not getting a chance to eat with us. During different times this time of year the train drops off 1000 or so people in a town that has seating at restaurants around 300 total for all the restaurants combined. And combine that with the fact that we are blessed enough to have a strong local following and unfortunately only seat 95 people total we can run a pretty big wait sometimes. But if me and my wife didn't work real hard to keep up the quality of food and service we would prob have open seats. But we do take pride in our business and our reputation, so I wanted to ask you to take a second to reconsider your review and ratings. We have worked day and night, seven nights a week to get and keep our score high and we are very confused about a 3 out of 5 because we are to busy for the time you have for dinner. Hopefully you will agree that it's not fair to put our score down to a point that would take us months to get back just because we do what we are suppose to do. And then the next time you guys are in town you can call and ask for me or my wife (grace) and we can get you checked in over the phone and reduce any wait time to almost nothing. I truelly do value every single one of our customers, and take great pride in knowing people choose to spend a special occasion, family dinner, or just a bite to eat with us. And truelly hope I can get a chance to take some pride in myself by seeing y'all enjoy not just a meal, but a night out with us. Thanks in advance for your reconsideration
