Had the crab Reuben, which was really delicious. Unfortunately lunch took nearly 90 minutes. But I would still go back because everyone in my party enjoyed their meals.

Love the original sauce. Ribs are tender with alot of meat and very little fat. Nice and hot. Staff is pleasant. Order was ready on time and everything was correct.

Almost everytime I go here we end up with bad service. I would have rated it higher if it weren't for that. They have a few things on their menu which are good enough to make me want to return and suffer their bad service. The number one thing is the sour beef and dumplings. If you like sour beef you have to come and try it. The beef is large lean and so tender that you can cut it with the side of your fork. The gravy and dumplings are also very good. When they serve it as their soup of the day, try the cream of crab.

This is another average restaurant. We went for lunch. Tried one of the specials. The crab cake was not good. Too much filler. Not enough crab meat. But I guess you should go to a seafood restaurant for good crab cakes. Would not get again. The ribs were enjoyable. A little too much sauce. I would however get them again.

The restaurant is not crowded at lunchtime on a week day. The server was quick. The fountatin beverage was a little watery and was reordered. Food came out rather quickly. Temperature of the food was consistent. French fries had too much salt.

Overall, I would give it another try. Maybe to see if the food is better at dinner. At lunch, will stick with the ribs or salad.

Went here a couple of times and cannot say it's anything to write home about. The food is fair and the drinks are too strong for my taste.
