“Aaaamazzzzing”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

The food is cooked perfectly every time. Diannah has a gift with food...not only can she cook well but it seems she has some type of magic touch! Thursday night is burger night and they have a different special one every week they are all absolutely delicious... .. But I have to say so far the peanut butter and jelly burger has been my favorite it sounds so different but the flavors all came together perfectly. I've had the filet there before as well and it may be one if not the best filet I've ever had. Frank is awesome, always out front making all re guests feel welcome and chatting with everyone. You can tell he is very creative and loves to play with the menu and hey if it's not on the menu and they have the items in the kitchen they will make it for you. Both Frank and Diannah seem very passionate about their food and it is wonderful because the food coming out of that restaurant is perfect every time!

“High point”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We took a short family trip to the area and after fast food on the road and bland local fare this was a haven at the end of the day. Service was attentive and friendly, food was great (the secret-recipe salad dressing should be bottled for sale!) Only small downside is be prepared if you have more than one small child, there is only one highchair on site.

“Best in Berks!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Been going for over 10 years and never dissapoints! If I am craving a filet this is the place! Frank hand selects and cuts them. My favorite appetizer in the world is their mussels and their calamari is a close runner up! Their might be fancier or "cooler" looking places to eat but not better! They have a great menu and a great bar to boot! Jimmy mixes up some of the best martini's this side of philly! Dianna's desserts are second to none! If they have it try the flourless chocolate cake! You will not regret it!

Lamb chops are incredible. Staff is among the best ever. If you haven't eaten here you are missing out!

“Never disappointed!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

It is wonderful to have this little gem so close to home. We've become regulars, more or less, on Thursdays - Burger Night. The service is always welcoming and outstanding. We love the casual atmosphere, but there's still a lot of classiness to it - because of the high standard of service and food. The burgers are second to none and always a great selection of beer on tap.
