The dishes are not too fancy, but they are hearty and very tasty. The quality is decent and their rolls are amazing. Service is great and they cater to a mixed clientele. Their lunch prices are solid.

The service is very good. The wait staff are attentive and with the large group I was with - patient, timely, kept drink orders straight, dealt with us with smiles all around.

The appetizers are tasty. The lunchtime food choices are solid and flavorful. The portions are large.

The outdoor covered seating is bright and roomy. The television screens are very sharp and the sound was off.

The food is not surprising. You've seen these menu items before. The raspberry tea was a disappointment but the waitress switched to very nice ice tea for the second cup.

Would come back because this is a fun place with happy workers - but wouldn't travel far to eat here otherwise

It was true...the hot rolls served with honey butter would melt in your mouth...YUM! We went to try the Prime Rib Chili..a special served only on Mondays. All four of us were a bit disappointed...the meat was scarce, not chocked full like we expected! However, the 1/2 sandwiches...Tri Tip and BLT were loaded with meat! Service was great; decor artsy...not what you expect in a "roadhouse"; a bit noisy. Overall, a good dining experience...we would go again!

Everything was exceptional from the the homemade bread/butter, the onion string appetizer, to the entrees. The prime rib was to die for, even the ice tea was great. The service and atmosphere was great. I would highly recommend. The kids portions were generous.

The rolls are out of this world.The meals are huge. Good drink selection. Fun atmosphere. This is where the locals go -- consistently good food.
