I love going to this place. Meals are generous, food is fantastic, atmosphere is great. I love the steak salad for lunch, steak dinner for later. You can order all the extras for your potato, steak is cooked the way you want it. Never have had a bad meal there.

If you're looking for a place that serves delicious food, has friendly servers and a huge menu, you won't be disappointed! We order their freshly made rolls for our Thanksgiving family dinner...that's how great they are!

We go a lot for dinners and graduations if not that as a couple or friends for their fantastic martinis. I'm not a big drinker but these are the best I've even been to the places in Reno and Vegas where they serve 100 or more and these compare and or maybe taste better. The food is also usually very...

The mini-golf course (18 holes), out back, is well-manicured, and pleasant to play alongside the roaring water. It is obvious they have put a lot of thought and effort into that experience, as they have the food. I found the b-b-q pork ribs to be especially well-prepared--tender and jiicy inside, with just a little crisp to the outside, generous portion... More

Just after finishing doubleheader softball games in a senior men's tournament we stopped at this restaurant for some well needed food and beverages. It was during happy hour so beer was discounted and food was from the lunch menu. My husband had a sirloin steak with a loaded baked potato that he said was very delicious. Along with this he...

The food is great and served with a smile. It's one of the only places you can get a truly rare steak. The rolls are the best ever especially with the honey butter. The after dinner opportunity to play mini golf is great for families.

This is a very fun place to go for a round of mini golf, drinks with the girls or birthday dinner out.

Nice restaurant, busy and nice portions of food, but pricey when the fixings are all sold separately. I don't think we had one burger under $11 at our table of five. Will definitely be back to give them another shot, largely due to the great customer service, but felt we over-paid for what we received on our first visit.
