We had a birthday dinner here and ordered both steak and salmon. The salmon was excellent with great taste and cooked to perfection. The Porterhouse steak is not what I remembered as a child. The New York portion was good, but to me lacked flavor and it was not tender. The tenderloin was tender but again lacked flavor. The garlic mashed potatoes were excellent, being one of the best! The waiter was very attentive and the meal arrived in the normal time. The honey butter hot rolls were fantastic! The setting while nice did include a noise level that makes conversation a challenge. Next time we will order something different than steak or try the competition.

Our party of 5 included 2 kids, and we arrived at lunchtime. Food was freshly prepared and generously portioned. Salads, burgers, fries, and everyone left happy. Service was friendly too. Diners can play miniature golf at the adjacent 18-hole course for a discounted rate of $5.50, although that's a flat rate even for kids and seniors. Good times!

We ate here on a busy night. Ordered just burgers and fries. The fries were cold and rubbery, and I had trouble locating a waitress to get condiments. No-one checked on us til the food was finished. I would not come back..

My family of six adults and a toddler made a reservation on the evening of the total eclipse: Aug. 21. We were seated on time and Cathy was our server. Each of us ordered something different. Each of our meals was perfectly prepared and delicious. We could not have had a better meal. Connected to the restaurant is a miniature golf course. I believe that management errs in charging their customers to pay. It seems to me that groups over a certain size, say five or more, who order drinks and dinner, should be able to play without charge. It would be a fine PR move on the part of an establishment that deserves its fine rating.

Local favorite for food or drinks. The Off the Grill salads are a great option. choose the salad, choose the grilled meat or salmon. Big sodas, good cocktails. Staff is friendly. Good size portions and rolls are terrific.
