We just happened to be here when a group of 40 also were here. I'm thinking it's not really fair to rate a restaurant with such a large group .... but, here goes.

We asked the host not to sit us by the large group. The noise was loud and we knew we wouldn't be able to hear each other talk. He did anyway. So, when our server came we asked her to move us. She did. We were very thankful. Being moved meant we had a different server in the bar. She definitely was one busy lady. At first we weren't thrilled with the service. It was very, very slow but actually it wasn't the server's fault. It was just extremely busy and they appeared to be a little understaffed for such a large group.

Between the four of us we had the sirloin steak, ribs and chicken. The sirloin steak was good and cooked perfectly. The ribs and chicken were very much overcooked. The ribs had very little bbq sauce on them. It might have helped if we had asked for more sauce. That was our fault. We also didn't get drink refills.

Would we go back again? Probably not.

My wife and I stopped for dinner and ordered their "a little less" dinner and still each one of us took half of our meal home for lunch the next day. The service was very good and everyone was kind and helpful.

This was the third time that I've been and it's consistent.
If you want a decent meal with good service and cute atmosphere, this is the place.

My husband and I would go here quite a bit before a movie or shopping at Costco . We stopped about 2 years ago . We love to sit ar the bar and watch sports . Our last visit here we went to our usual place at the bar . The crowd of people siting there were smelled of smoke and alcohol. We then looked at the Tv and realized that the normal sports we watch was not on , horse racing was on , when we asked if they could turn the channel on one of the Tvs we were told no that they were now a betting ar for horse racing . We have not been back since , it was a disgusting experience . The food as always was wonderful, but the atmosphere has changed from cozy family to seedy . Very sad

Sad service & sad food. Maybe the steaks are good, but I had the tri-tip and is was horrible - dry and cooked too well and ordered it medium well. Maybe next time.
