Over worked server delivered cold food. Ordered 9 oz top sirloin, hubby a pork chop. My food obviously sat while they prepared the thicker chop. COLD meat, fries, and grilled veggies. Returned to reheat and received a steak that it was so far past medium that it was almost inedible. As an adjustment to the bill, they took a $2.49... More

I went with a group of 9 and they seated us quickly. It took a little long to get to our drinks and food orders. One of my group member's order was forgotten, so she received her food after a longish delay. They did comp her meal. The food (I had a burger) was pretty good. Getting checks took a... More

Eight family members were served by a wonderful waitress later in the evening. She explained the menu and the sweet potatoes, which weren't the orange color typically expected. Those potatoes were better than the orange ones!! All food was served hot and cooked to order. She gave us to go boxes and was pleasant and professional while serving us. A... More

Cute place that serves buckets of peanuts. You get to throw the shells on the floor. Their normal portions looked really big. I was glad I was able to order off their Lite Menu. My steak was cooked to perfection. However, it was very chewy. My husband had the chicken/ribs combo and was very pleased. The rolls with honey butter... More

Although the ambience is a little lacking, the food and service are not. I visited this restaurant for the first time and returned twice within a couple of weeks. That's how much I liked it. Food was great every time and the wait staff is friendly and attentive. I'd give it 5 stars if it weren't such a big barn... More

We had about 12 people in our group reservation. Our server handled the drinks, orders and changes with style and a smile. Bottomless peanuts and they let you drop the shells on the floor! The food was good, the drinks were good. This was our fist time here. Since we're not from around here, perhaps we'll drop in next time... More

Had a bacon wrapped filet and caesar salad. Filet was just OK. About 1/2 in thick for $22. Salad came first and was so old the romaine was wilted I couldn't eat it, so complained. They said they'd take it off of the bill, but took off $2.95 when it cost $4.95. Service was not good. Server was overworked. Didnt... More
