Description: There's nothing timid about our chicken... or our meatloaf... or our hand cut hickory grilled sizzling steaks, line caught Ahi tuna or cornbread baked in a skillet and fired up by fresh jalapeno and Serrano peppers. This is full flavored American cuisine, fresh and bold, made by our chefs from scratch every day, and presented by servers who treat you like the valued guest you are. We invite you to join us for lunch, dinner, happy hour or late evening dining, and enjoy the best that America has to offer.

“How can you mess up mashed potatoes?”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

There with friends for dinner. The chef has a very heavy hand with spices. The redskin mashed potatoes were so peppery, they were inedible. The waiter did offer a baked potato as a substitute, and he knew what was wrong with the mashed potatoes before I said anything. The signature dish, rotisserie chicken, was a mixed bag. The chicken skin (crispy) again was inedible because of all the spices. This in turn imparted a sort of unpleasant flavor to the chicken, which, to be fair, was moist. Chicken pot pie was also overly peppery. Wine list is small and uninspiring. Will not go back.

“Average Resturant with high prices”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

What can I see, it is was just an OK experience. The restaurant is well situated in down town Silver Spring with easy access and parking. The space is rather large, which makes the dining situation noisy. We were a party of 8, and literally had to yell across the table to be heard (the 30+ people birthday party next to us did not help in that regard either). The menu is sort of standard for this kind of establishment. The service was OK, nothing exceptional, nothing bad either. The problem I have with this place is the pricing. It is rather highly priced for the quality of the food provided. For 20-30 dollars for entre I would expect the food to be much better than it is. Basically it is a “classic” American food you can get in many other places around Silver Spring at half the cost. The quality of the food has gone down in the last several visits to the establishment and the prices gone up. I don’t think I will return any time soon, considering the number of options around.

“Perfect dining in downtown Silver Spring, MD!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Not much to say, because the experience speaks for itself. I had a great window seat, great server (Jonathan), and great food! NY strip was perfectly cooked medium. I was a bit skeptical due to some of the so-so TripAdvisor reviews, but now can't see how they could rate this place any less than 4/5! A MUST-TRY when in the area. Prepare to spend about $30-35 for a good meal, beverage and appetizer. Well worth it!!!!!

“Great veggie burger”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

I love veggie burgers, and try them almost anytime I see them on a menu. I'm often dissappointed, because they lack the flavor and consistency that I like. This one was really good! It didn't fall apart as many of them do, and it had a very savory flavor. The bun was whole grain, and held up under the substantial veggie burger. The wait staff is really attentive, and knowledgeable. They went over the menu with enthusiasm and passion. After the presentation of the dessert menu, there was no way not to have dessert. The pineapple upside down cake was superb! But the portion was enough for three.
