Been eating here for years! Best salad bar around! Always fresh ingredients and clean salad bar area. Meatballs, cheese spread and soup are delicious! Service was ok..:a little slow to refill tea but other than that, it was great once again!

Way above average salad bar. Steaks are flawless, cooked perfectly. This place is real good in my opinion, and I have traveled and been a foodie around the world. This is a great local place with character and a very good product.

Good beef, descent salad - but not so much more. Interior a bit boring and rather dark. Descent selection of beers but poor selection of wines. Service is OK.
