Loved the live entertainment. Wish the food was better. Service is just ok. Seem to be short staffed each time we were in.

“Honest food in a comfortable environment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

Our dinner comanions had the pot roast which looked incredible. The pasta carbonara was OK. A little heavy on the sauce, but with plenty of pancetta. My husband had the shrimp pasta which he rated as average. We were early diners so we enjoyed the happy hour drink specials. Good music in the background...Average tourist town dinner spot.

“Good thin crust pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

This past weekend we stayed in a cabin in Monte Rio and ordered a sausage pizza "to go" from Main Street Station when we arrived Friday evening. It was ready for pick-up in 15 minutes. The pizza had a very good thin artisan crust, sweet sausage, tomatoes and basil. We enjoyed it very much and plan to get it again next time we're in the Russian River area.

“cheesecake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Dinner was good - but the treat after was best - they make a great cheesecake - yum! Buttery graham cracker crust filled with some of the best cheesecake I've ever had.

“worst food i've had in my life”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

the mussels were bad to inedible (meaning that they were not fresh when cooked); the garlic bread had no garlic except for one clove that was in one bite; the crabcakes were breadcrumb patties with no crab. This was followed by tiramisu that wasn't. The only saving grace was the band. Best to go there and not eat. I should add that the cost was twice as much as the better restaurants in the area.
