We came on a Friday evening for dinner and the place was crowded as it usually is. The menu is mostly seafood but they have a Friday night prime rib special so that's what I ordered. Big piece of meat but nothing special about it....More

We had a big family dinner for eight at Hanser House. We liked the simple decor and it was pouring rain, so we didn't need a restaurant with a view. The service was very friendly, but a bit slow and disjointed. The owner apologized for...More

Just don't go here. The food is standard, fried seafood at a very high price. The menu is unimaginative. The service is miserably slow, and the waitresses were downright rude. The manager was argumentative and unhelpful. It is supposed to be a family restaurant, but...More
