This has always been one of my favorite places to eat and now that the new building is up, it ranks a few notches higher. Great food and wait staff, however the tall ceilings seem to have made it a little noisier.

This resturaunt is locally owned and has been for years before local was cool. My friend who was a working mom called Sterlings her family's kitchen table. It was where their family gathered weekly and met for meals. A down home feel on classic food done well with great service. They have recently opened a brand new facility on the... More

The name says it all. This Richland landmark is indeed famous for its steaks, seafood and salad bar. It is also famous for serving a delicious breakfast until 2:00 P.M. daily. But, after 30 years, or so, I understand that the current building will soon be torn down and replaced by a new one next door.

My husband and I were looking for a decent meal after traveling all day. This restaurant had a terrific salad bar, which included soups as well. Everything was fresh, even though it was late in the day. I recommend it.

I admit it. I'm a self proclaimed hipster. I wear bright colors, funky shirts and tasseled loafers. I tend to vote left of the aisle. My curiosity for this establishment arose from the Yelp reviews...Great Food...Service...Atmosphere etc. So my wife and I figured what the heck. When we walked in, there was a family of 8 or so. The four... More

I was not impressed with the quality of food or cleanliness of my table. I had heard that you could get a great steak here, but I was disappointed. I ordered a steak and sides. I ordered a med well steak dinner. The steak was tough and pink on the inside, the bake potato had been cooked and reheated. If... More

Very nice family restaurant, owned and run by a local family that has been in the Tri Cities for probably over 20 years. Huge menu, including house specialties not found elsewhere. Great salad bar.

Food was classic and varied selection, many interesting choices including stuffed baked potatoes with taco seasonings or cheese and ham to lobster and steak, to pastas w grilled shrimp, to healthy selections, to kids choices with a fabulous selection of fruit (not your standard couple orange wedges). The salad bar is superb and it's amazing to see how many soup... More

We eat here about once a month and the food is consistently decent. This is not a fancy restaurant and the prices are reasonable for the quality of food you get. We go here when we want to eat out but don't want to dress up and don't want the fuss of the more fancy places. The menu is extensive,... More

My wife and I have eaten there twice in the last week. Once for breakfast and once for lunch. I had the chicken fried steak and biscuit and gravy with hash browns. Absolutely Superb and more than I could eat. Lunch was two days later and the experience was just as wonderful.

Thank Raymond B
