“Waittress/Owner made us feel welcome”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

We we're late for a reservation and bywom was our second choice. The staff went out of their way to fit us in without reservations. We had fish fry and bistro steak. We had more than enough fish and the bistro steak was amazing with fries and a chimichurri ? sauce. I would recoomend reservations as they were full and had others waiting.

“I love this place”
Reviewed December 25, 2011

Great staff and fantastic menu selection. Local and well-known drafts and beers on hand. We eat here on Friday's for fish fry and, when we go mid week, we like to try out the menu.
The Unsinger Sausage platter is very good and the dry rub ribs are my favorite; a man could die happy after that meal.
John Flach, the owner, and his wife Pam make sure your dinner and dessert both make you return for more. Pam makes the ice creams and, right now has an egg nog ice cream on the menu...made with rum! What a treat with the banana bread pudding!

“Fantastic Service, great food, and friendly staff!”
Reviewed December 25, 2011

We had the "Friday Night Fish-Fry" special...$14 all you can eat. The cod was breaded to perfection and we had a choice of a potato pancake with a dollop of applesauce or the garlic fries. My husband had the potato pancake and I had the garlic fries. Both were delicious but, after he kept filching mine, they let us place a re-order for extra fries...it is all you can eat, after all!
Our waitress was Renee and she was friendly, efficient, and quick to offer refills on food and to notice when drinks were dwindling.
The bartender made an amazing Basil Martini and was congenial as well as an expert mixologist.
There were several private parties, families, and couples dining that night and the ambiance fit well for all occasions. Several secluded corners, a few large group areas and a nice bar area for all types of groups to eat.
We will definitely go back for the Bison Tenderloin which the table beside us ordered and could not quit raving about!

“Very Good Restaurant”
Reviewed December 18, 2011

This place is off the beaten path, tucked away in an office complex. But, true to its name, you will find it by virtue of the buzz it receives. The food was great and the price was reasonable.

“what happened? you used to be OK, but now not so much”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

We used to go here fairly often with friends and business fellows. Food a few years ago was OK, not great, but a busy place, good drinks and familiar faces.
Service has been sluggish and unprofessional for some time now.
The Friday Fish Fry was very popular if you can stomach frozen batch over fried fish, but cheap.
But when a Bistro steak consists of 4 oz of beef sliced to look like 8oz, over cold mashers and overlooked veggies, we had to bail. wont go back again. Not even for what I have called forever, the 5 bite, 10$ Ceasar salad, with Tomatoes?
Sorry Word, good luck.
