“Best Refreshing Long Island Ice Tea Ever !”
Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

Under new management, Mgr. Mallory does a great job of making you feel welcome! Mushroom appetizer is now loaded with a great cheese blend.
We love the Long Island Ice Tea with a flat bread pizza:) try the outdoor seating!

“OK Place”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Food was okay, nothing fancy, but tasted good. Carpeting needs replaced badly. Service was fine but little follow up after meals were served.

“Best of Circleville”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This place has struggled the past few years but things seem to be picking up. A new owner (the original) and a new chef of some reputation are establishing renewed standards. The menu is a work in progress; well rounded but no favorites for me. This restaurant seems to train a multitude of service people so the results can be inconsistent but they all try. If you are in Circleville, a good place to try.

“What is with this place???”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

I have visited this restaurant several times over several years, and the inconsistency is what is most impressive. First, overall, the food is average. They try to have "fancy" dishes among sandwiches but they consistently fail. They are just way too greasy, or bland, or just 'not right". Yesterday I went with 3 friends for lunch and the service was terrible. The waitress was a nice enough young lady, but either not trained or just not sharp. She disappeared for 10 minutes after saying she would be "right back" for our order, and then told us there was a meeting she was trying to attend in "the back". Three of us wanted some more sauce for sandwiches, so maybe 5 minutes later she comes back with TWO, not three, tiny cups of sauce... what is this, gold??? If you don't want fries, there is an upcharge for the only other side...cottage cheese!! Who is the world wants that with fish??? And you can buy a huge cottage cheese at Sam's Club and give it away it is so cheap. The fish in the sandwich was good, but the bun was cold. I am being nice saying this was average, because it was better than McDonalds, but NOT worth the wait or the price. Maybe it should be rated poor, but it was a close call. The other times I have been there there were problems as well. There are some real management issues and a lack of respect for treating patrons with generousity. Cheapness does not make return customers!
