I had my heart set on a good prime rib dinner and despite it being a house specialty, it was tough and flavorless. That can sometimes be overcome by a good horseradish sauce, but that almost overpowered the meat. The baked potato was good, but it didn't taste like real bacon bits. I have to say that the service was... More

We sat out on the patio on a sunny Friday night with family. There is no view, but the fresh air and garden setting was nice, They were out of propane, so no fire ambience that night :( but I could see that would be nice. The service was phenomenal. Our group ordered beers and drinks which included a Mojito.... More

Went out on a Friday night and was promptly seated at 5pm. They had some great specials. I had their fish copperhead salmon that was brined in a smokey brine that really gave it great flavor! Their salad bar and clam chowder was a highlight for everyone in our party. The service was attentive and very friendly! We will be... More

The Northside Restaurant is a quaint and unassuming place, the only thing that may tip you off to the great food being served inside is the full parking lot. Yes, this little gem serves up some of the best food in a foodie town. Sure, it's not fancy and there aren't any ocean views but you can count on a... More

Great Prime Rib with the typical sides with bread and salad bar or soup included. Casual place with good service at a fair price.

Next best thing to the steakhouse at the silver reef casino. The restaurant is casual but the food is very good, I had a delicious, juicy rib eye steak that was exactly medium rare. Dinner includes a trip to the well stocked salad bar which also included clam chowder. The service was exceptional! Our waitress was courteous, friendly and accommodating.... More

We have been enjoying this restaurant for many years. I almost didn't write a review because I don't want to have to wait for a table. But that isn't fair. We normally have prime rib with baked potato after we have enjoyed their salad and soup bar. On Fridays they even serve Clam Chowder as the soup, which is served... More
