“Great Steak and Service”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Had a great meal, stuffed rib eye that i shared with my wife - we both thought it was excellent. My daughter had a half a rack of ribs, which fell off the bone. The half rack was easily the biggest half rack you could find. Don't over order because the meal comes with soup, salad, and a root beer float. We left very satisfied. The server, Tyler, was attentive, friendly, and provided excellent service.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This has become one of our favorite restaurants in Eugene. A casual atmosphere but really delicious food. Steak, seafood, chicken. Really nice variety. With the meal comes soup, salad, potatoes and rice, served family style. You get a lot for your money here. My favorite dish is called Chicken Parma-John, which has the most delicious parmesan sauce over a nice crispy chicken breast. Our family of 6 has tried many different entrees, and each one has been really tasty. Highly recommend this place!

“You won't leave hungry”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We ate here on a coupon and were amazed at the amount of food you are served, from soup to dessert. The soup was a little too spicy but good. The prices are very high so would only eat here again with a coupon.
