The Greek Wings were excellent as well as the dipping sauces. We have never been offered so many choices for dinner. Very accommodating establishment. The Duck Burger and Crab Cake very good as well. For a sweet ending we ordered a mini beer which was suggested by restaurant regulars at the next table. (Liqor 43, a Spanish liquor and heavy... More

While in the area for a meeting decided to check this place out. Upon entering we were a little skeptical however over all it was a good experience. I had the special which included a 7oz filet with 2 sides. The filet itself was delicious with that being said the price was $28. My partner got a burger which didn't... More

While visiting West Liberty University, we were told to go here. Walking in, I was a little worried about what I was getting into but then everything was great. Our server was friendly and kept our drinks full, the menu has just about everything your group could ever want, the food came out quickly, the portions are giant and reasonably... More

This restaurant doesn't look fancy, and because it is so crowded it is noisy. BUT, the food is sooooo good. And the service is great. It is obvious that all the employees are well trained and they all help each other out.

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 The building and decor is definitely outdated.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

Been around for years and years The food is even better than ever. Fair pricing and good service. First ate there over 50 years ago. Happy to see a local stay in business all these years. It is unique on bar side and food is always good. Service is always good with nice waiters etc.
