The restarant looks a little worn but the food and service were excellent. I had a cobb salad with shrimp and it was one of the best salads I have ever had. My wife said the same for the salmon salad. The Server was knowledgable and helpful. We will return.

I have mixed feelings on this place. This was a first time visit for us. The building and decor is definitely outdated. The service was great. Let me start with the positive, the HOHO cake is out of this world! I never get dessert, but was still hungry after dinner. We started with the portabella plate, 2 large pieces of... More

The restaurant side is great for families and you can call ahead reservations. The menu is awesome. I don't even have a favorite thing to... More

The ambiance on the bar side was very much like a neighborhood bar. On the restaurants side, the ambiance was nothing remarkable: Midwest Family Restaurant. The staff was friendly and responsive. My waitress saw me do a double take on my drink and offered to make it her way...to good effect. Chips and salsa were excellent...in fact the salsa was... More
