“They really aren't RESERVATIONS so be aware.”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

My husband stopped in on Friday morning to make what he thought were Reservations for 9 people at 7pm. We did not get seated until 7:40 & were told those weren't RESERVATIONS he made, it was just getting your name on "The List". We have eaten there several times before & had very good food. However Friday night my plate of fish & french fries were comletely cold so rather disappointing.
I guess my best advice is don't go with a big group!!!!!

“It is GREAT!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

First time snowbirds in AZ. Went there for lunch. All you can eat fish & chips. Without a doubt the very best I have ever had. I was told it was Alaska Halibit, very lightly breaded in a seasoned flower. Served with REAL fresh french fries (not the frozen trash most places ave). And a cup of the most wonderful cole slaw. (you will have to go there to find the twist, most amazing!)..It is not the least expensive fish & chips in the area but by far the BEST! And the service was as good if not better than the meal. Never with out full drink glasses, fish comming before the previous serving was done. All in all the best meal, & service I have had in a very long time. in one word --GREAT!

“where the locals eat”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Always like this friendly place and the food is nothing fancy, but it is good. It is not noisy so a good place to sit and talk, and if it isn't too busy you can sit and talk as long as you want. If you are there often they will remember you--nice to find friendly places like this----

“Good Solid Spot”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Not fancy, but good food and great folks. Want comfort food (like Chicken Fried Steak)? This is the place to go. Close to some very senic spots like the Superstion Mountains.

“Absolutely wonderful food and service!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

It has a very unique atmosphere with excellent food and the service goes beyond what is to be expected. My whole family eats there regularly, it's a great place to go for a family's night out!
