My wife and three kids went for my wife's birthday. I saw that it had good ratings and was appropriate for a family. It did not disappoint. My kids (one picky eater) all enjoyed their meals and my wife and I had a couple of nice wines and great meals. Nice family restaurant.

I haven't dined here for several years because of a bad initial impression. Stopped on Christmas Eve day on the way to see family and are glad we did. We were looking for a quick lunch and were thrilled with the quick service and excellent food we received. A dinner menu was sitting on the host stand when we arrived... More

We recently enjoyed a business lunch here. Two of us had different fish dishes, both were very tasty with excellent presentation. Two others had chicken dishes and both were also excellent. Nice atmosphere and friendly, good service.

If you are looking for a variety in menu and a casual upscale experience then this might be the place for you. Have eaten here many times and overall it is very good. Service can be slow sometimes and food as well but overall it is a very nice place. I give it 4 circles because of inconsistency in service.... More

I have been here many times for business lunches and dinners with wife and family. I have never been disappointed. I have had everything from burgers, pizza, fish, meatloaf, stake and a few nightly specials. All were very good.

We went for a Sunday lunch without a reservation and did not have any trouble getting a table. The food was fresh and was presented nicely. Service was attentive.
