“Best lunch place in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

I go to Kalmes for lunch almost every day. Their daily specials are incredible (especially on $2 Tuesdays) and they make everything taste the way I prefer it. My favorite this past week was TJ's homemade "jalapeño calamari."

“Just another bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

Good steaks or prime rib if you get there early; otherwise, they run out of stuff (even baked poatoes).

“Best Home cooked food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2012

You would never guess a little place like this you would need a reservation, but on the weekends you should. The food is fresh and great for a bar. Just don't expect healthy food.
