There is no bad meal here. The absolute best hand breaded fried mushrooms are to be had here. Everything is cooked perfectly from buffalo wings and popcorn shrimp, to burgers and steak, to Monterey chicken and nachos. Such good food and service they are closed...More

Food was great and portion size was huge. Place has a nostalgic vibe and our waitress was on time. Couldn't ask for more.

The Brown Lantern is located next door to the Elks Lodge of which we are members. Sometimes when we go to the Lodge but the kitchen isn't open, we'll walk over here and grab a quick bite to eat.
