Great Oysters!

I ordered the steak and lobster, steak medium rare. The steak was a bit overdone but the lobster and oysters were perfect! The service was good, and overall I was satisfied with the meal.

What a marvelous surprise. I attended a dinner for about 20 adults at this restaurant. I was pleased to be able to order off the menu instead of having to select from "beef, fish or vegetarian." I know it's tough to get a group served with hot food all at once, and the folks here were able to do it... More

Very disappointing dinner. This is a large, traditional family-style, reasonably-priced restaurant with rows of booths in high-ceilinged rooms, which was once nicely decorated. It is now old-looking and dirty. The walls are stained, and the carpet is filthy. It is family run, but appears as though the current generation is uninterested or unable to manage it. The staff looked untidy.... More

Attached to the Sheraton hotel, this odd place is not that impressive. The decor is dated and the food is stuffy and really average. There's absolutely no reason to come to this place unless you don't want to venture out of the Sheraton. Even then, you might wish you had.

The prices are very reasonable, we had blackened chicken on Alfredo noodles, and the salmon with dill sauce both were very good. And wine. the service was just fine. IT was fast and very convenient especially if you're staying at the hotel. I would go back there for breakfast lunch or dinner.

We actually ate here twice. Once by ourselves as a couple and then again with a large family group after a high school graduation. We stayed at a hotel close by since we knew the breakfast buffet was scheduled here. The place is very comfortable. Prices reasonable and service was good. You can always tell a good restaurant when they... More

Mary was a waitress and she did an excellent job while we dined in for breakfast. The food was delicious and the setting of the restaurant was very close to our hotel and made for a great end to our trip!

Sorry folks but breakfast was pretty bad last week. French toast was ok, but hash browns seemed more microwaved than fried. Coffee tasted bitter and the juice watered down.
