“Good family restaurant.”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

All food is good. Lots of calories in most choices. Hamburgers, shakes, fries and so on. Other foods too. Step and half up from Denny's.

“Very good service and food choices.”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Lots and lots of whatever it is you order. Portions are great size, and the service is fast. Love their salads and breakfasts are very big. The chili and cornbread are great too.

“Good prime rib - great service!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We dropped by hungry after a long day, and were happy to see there was a prime rib special. I got my delicious end cut, and my guest enjoyed her medium rare slice from the middle. Came with a nice, fresh salad - and the dinner included choice of potato and some DELICOUS steamed veggies. The Servers work together as a team - don't "bug" you - but also there to refill your ice tea and remove plates. Had a nice dinner at a nice price. Would definitely recommend!

“Nice family style restaurant!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Went here twice during our stay in Merced. Both times the food and service was great. Never had to ask for a refill on my coffee. The meals are more than plenty. Had the Corned beef and cabbage on St Paddys day! It was awesome.
