The food and the atmosphere is awesome. When we got there the place was packed and there is a reason why. The service was good but it was a long time getting our food. That said it was great and we will go back

We had high expectations for the place but only one in six had food they thought was good. Steaks were hard and tough (asked for Med-Rare), fries were cold and little and HARD. All you can eat ribs were pretty good but $20. Good beer selection.

Started with greasy onion rings. Sirloin tips were tasty, but tough. Side of corn was bad. Needs to improve or close up.

Have eaten here almost every year we visit. They have a great menu and I like "The Cardiac arrest" burger. Onion rings are great. Great beer menu and the y even have PBR for a buck!!! The decor is such that I could spend an hour just looking at the things on the walls.

Service was slow and very poor. The fried pickles were very good but the nachos were very small and missing ingredients that we were told would be on them. We used to come here all the time but won't be returning anytime soon!

Fun atmosphere with antiques slathered throughout. The menu is the most impressive book of a menu you have ever seen. Come hungry as the portions are huge!

Over 45 minutes to get food on a Monday afternoon with only 4 tables of customers. Then the food was so so. The potatoes were soaked in grease so much that the grease squeezed out when you tried to cut them. Never going back.

Nice Variety of food and beer selections. This one is alittle hard to find, but worth it. The Decor is always interesting too!
