The packed house when we arrived told us something right away. Our waiter Matt is worth asking or waiting for too. We split two meals so enjoyed a couple of items each while having more than enough! And then we topped it off with one...More

I went to try the pork tenderloin. Freshly pounded and hand breaded it had a good ratio of breading to pork but totally lacked seasoning. Great service and cozy atmosphere.

As always most excellent wings. Great and friendly service. Usually a wait but well worth it. Vegetable beef soup is better than mine. Warm, casual happy atmosphere.

Don't come for the decor, come for the food & service! We've been here several times and always have great food & service. You might have to wait, but it's worth it!

Stopped here on a whim, split an order of wings (get the homemade ranch). And had the tenderloin sandwich. Recommend the buffalo chips as your side. It was busy, but there was a reason. It’s good! We’ve already planned what we are going to get...More

YES the chicken wings are wonderful....perfectly fried, crispy. AND, best of all, they are meaty and ample. And the dipping sauces are very tasty as well. Service was good this trip. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE.

Looking for a place where you can be welcomed and and seated by the owner-somewhere where where you can order premium sushi prepared by a proffessional chef, and then enjoy what I would say is some of the best prime rib in the Midwest? Yes,...More

A comfy, cozy spot with great food. The whitefish sandwich is super yummy. The wings are plentiful, enough for two. Of course you can’t go wrong with the tenderloin. No skimping on the amount of food, staff always professional and efficient...a great place to eat.

Our daughter was home from college, so we called to order wings for take out. As always, they were delicious! I always get the buffalo sauce, but tried the Asian sauce this time, too, and it was really good! I think I’ll opt for all...More

My rating should be more like 3 1/2 if TA would allow. So, let me begin with the issues that reduced the rating from a 5. First, 1/2 'point' because I waited for an excessive amount of time for my beer to arrive. It was...More

The bar area is on the ground floor and there is additional seating "upstairs" on an open, elevated area. You may have trouble getting into the door, though, because the space between the outside door and the inside door... More

Saturday lunch would be better. I'm sure they would accommodate you for dinner, but there would be a significant wait. You would definitely want to have an early dinner. They don't take reservations but with a party that... More
