Just a basic resturant nothing special. Wait staff has no skills. Sat down ordered a T-Steak for $28 and waited 30 minutes to be told the waitress took it to the wrong table. Taste was average. Place over priced for average food.

Good food—outside dining is fabulous, especially if you have kids with you. . Great salad bar. Only wish they had more Keto type options, such as wings, on the menu.

The steaks are very good here as well as the chicken fried steak. Nightly specials are also very good. My favorite is the soup and salad bar. Had a very good chicken soup the other night. Recommended for families.

Yes they still serve their cheese steaks. This is a signature dish for the restaurant and I can't imagine that they would ever take it off the menu. When I was there in October 2015 a couple of people in our party ordered... More
