This place rocks! Salmon and vegetables was awesome! Bread pudding was amazing! Must go!! Bar area is very neat. Friendly staff and great ambiance. There's a train that runs around the restaurant up near the ceiling. Kid and family friendly. Will definitely go back!

Menu is varied with appetizers (Try the pretzel rolls, yum), salads, soups, lots of burgers and special entrees. Kids menu is available along with a coloring page to keep them busy. Our server,...

Food should be better. I ordered a specialty burger. Pot roast was dry. Not enough Horseradish sauce. My waitress... More

First time for me at this restaurant, I ordered just a plane American Burger. WOW, it was great! I loved the special seasoning they use, and you get sweet potato fries or potato wedges. Will be back to try more.

The restaurant sits right off the freeway. The atmosphere and ambiance is amazing. I sat outside and enjoyed the cool weather. The staff was a little slow with the food. The burger was delicious. They have put a lot of work into the building and have done their history research.
