To be fair, I'd like this resturant to suceed. But after trying this place outand their buffet, I won't be back. They made a nice effort on the 1920s look, but the pipe in modern music? The buffet was sitting out for a long time, and nobody else was in the resturant. The food was overdone and mushy. I hope... More

Went here for a business lunch. Wish we had not. Our first hint should have been the antique car in the entrance, come on stick to food. But no.... server took for ever on the beverages, menus. When the food did get her the salad was old, my food actually made me sick. Never again.

I felt like I was at my grandmothers! The food was clearly all made from scratch and the portions were huge! Highly recommend.

We were here on a Sunday noon with 3 small kids. We waited close to an hour for our food and it wasn't that busy. And most of us ordered breakfast! The menu said Sunday buffet, but there was no buffet. We have been here during the week and the buffet is great. Food was good when it finally arrived,... More

Food Ok.. Service terrible! Watch your bill!! It was $50.00 more than what we should have been billed. We had the 2 for $25 shrimp dinners and our bill had 25$ for each dinner.. Waitress didn't seem to know what was going on... Would I go back? No.

We had a party of 5, so the orders varied. Besides the Italian food, you can order American off the meu also. I had a grilled Reuben which was very good, and some diners had the spaghetti, and lasagna. My Reuben was $9.50 , and since I was a guest I am not aware of the other prices on the... More

Many really good entrees to choose from with a 30's kinda Italian theme. Have tried many of the offerings and have not been disappointed.
