The food is excellent, but the service is s-l-o-w!! We had eaten there three or four times when we had not been in a hurry and went back the other night for a pizza before a concert. We got there in what we thought was plenty of time to eat and get to our concert five minutes away, but we... More

If a waitress doesn't hear you request a bottle of wine and she brings a glass of wine and you still order your bottle of wine do you pay for the glass of wine? And when she tries to charge you for the glass of wine and you refuse and she says God bless you, I'll pray for you do... More

My wife, two grandchildren and I went to eat here. Had to wait 15-20 minutes for a table. No big deal. Then we got our drinks. Ordered our meals. Wife got her salad and granddaughter got her soup. Wife really enjoyed her salad. Wait staff was courteous. Then we waited for our meals. And waited. And waited. Our waitress commented... More

We visited this restaurant last night around 6pm and had to wait over and hour for a table while watching wait staff stomp around with sour looks on their faces. We finally got a table and waited just over another hour to get our food. There were only 4 of us! While seated we had to endure some if the... More

Went for the Fantastic Pizza! The place needs some serious Organization!! Hostess and Servers are trying very hard but can't keep up and need some Help!! The Small bar is upstairs and there's one right next door but if you visit one while waiting you're afraid you'll miss when they call you to be seated! Very Easy Fix...everyone has cell... More

The food did not disappoint. There is a good variety of food to choose from from pizza to formal meals. The staff were friendly and the food excellent. We were even able to buy a jar of their famous salad dressing. YUM!

We used to go to this restaurant a lot, but have opted for other options around town lately. Our friends took us to dinner here and I ordered my favorite salad. I am not certain why, but instead of being full of flavor, it was just okay. The chicken on the salad was plentiful, but dry, and the house dressing... More

I had asked around town about this eatery. I was told it was very good. Maybe it was just me but it seem like the employees were a bit out of sorts. The dishes were good but the service. Mediocre at best.

Thank Tim S
