The only good thing about here was the staff was friendly and service was quick. The food was overpriced and very bland. The sandwiches didn't come with fries even for the price. Never usually post bad reviews but never will stop here again.

My wife and I were amazed at the offerings on the menu and there were several items we would have gotten! The service was amazing. We went there for an early dinner and had our meal right away. We were there for 30-40 mins tops!...More

Everything here is great, but everybody else does fried pickles in the round. Here they make the effort to slice as fries. Delicious!!! Martinis pretty darn good too.

For variety and consistent family fare, this is a gem. There are many more upscale sites in town, but this one is good food without fuss and high price tags. Something to everyone's taste in a group and room for small gatherings. Service is friendly...More

Based on other reviews, I feel like I dined at a completely different restaurant. This was the absolute most disgusting meal I've possibly ever had. For claiming to have an amazing BBQ/Smokehouse Chef, the chili should have been outstanding...not the worst thing I've ever put...More

Not too crazy about the diner feel to this place, but first time breakfast visit was very, very good! No brown on my scrambled eggs, perfectly cooked bacon, and best of all, no paprika or onions, on the hash browns!!! We also had a couple...More

A large menu to accommodate whatever you desire to eat. Excellent Prime Rib on Friday and Saturday while it lasts! New addition to the menu are the barbecue items...shredded brisket sandwich is very good. Good place for breakfast.
