Three of us had good meals, though my meatloaf was not anything to write home about or to write a review about. Excellent service. I'd recommend this restaurant.

We have been here many times and will return many more. Good food, with an extensive menu at a reasonable price. There is a large nicely decorated dining area with an early American theme. It's called the Great American Saloon and that is the theme. The wood is really nice. The food and service are great, and there is a... More

A local tip sent me here for the ribs. The ribs were a large portion and they were very good. The real issue was the cream of crab soup was served just warm and I expected more substance. It was more cream than crab. I ordered the creamed spinach as a side and it was served at or below room... More

Suffice it to say DON"T waste you money there. The staff was beyond rude and they conned people who were there into paying cash by saying their credit card machines had "gone down".

We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed BUT last night the food was extra delicious!! I had the Baked Cod with crabmeat over Yukon gold potatoes and asparagus. It was awesome! My husband had the grilled meatloaf and our guest had the sausage rigatoni (way too much food). Did I mention the warm, freshly baked bread?... More

First off this restaurant was clean and very attractive inside. The staff was efficient and friendly. Nice variety on the menu. I don't know if we ordered the wrong items but our food was not good. My husband ordered the Louisiana Steak. The sauce was tasty but the meat was really tough. I ordered a seafood medley and it was... More

Delicious meals, full of flavor. We didn't want to stop eating even when were full :) Our server, Sheelah, provided amazing service. She was sweet, always smiling, made us feel special. Amazing dining experience!

We eat here about once a month, close to our home with great food, bar and wait staff. Interesting décor will amuse while you wait for your order.
