DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! GO ELSEWHERE! We were not greeted as soon as we stepped in the door by any of the 4 employees at the hostesses area. Server (Claudiu) got us drinks but failed to get our drink order correct for one our 4 drinks. Food was ordered and did not come out in a timely manner. Appetizer was not seasoned as expected and not clearly indicated there was some heat to the rib tips (apparently they assume your are an expert chef and know it will be spicy). Additionally, the rib tips had small bones in all pieces (WHICH IS A SERIOUS HEALTH HAZZARD/CHOKING HHAZZARD!). All meals served were very sub par at best. Prime rib appeared to have sat out at one point causing the meat to be dried out in some areas. Cheddar mac and cheese was ice cold around edges and barely warm in center (indicating dish sat at the pass awhile prior to delivering to our tables). Burgers were over cooked and fries barely warm (but edible). Drinks were not refilled when empty. We were never asked if anyone was unhappy with our dishes, simply brought us the check. We paid the bill and tipped accordingly for the poor service. We were then rudely asked why the poor tip due to he has a family and 2 children that he has to support off the tips and wages he makes. We responded with the reason as to why (which was based upon performance). Poor performance/service ='s poor tip, pretty self explanatory in the food industry. We then had a 5 min conversation arguing about why the poor tip and why we did not say anything sooner. Simply put he never noticed that there were issues with any thing, when it was clearly obvious if he would've checked in with us. Instead he chose not not check in with us. It was rather shocking that during this whole conversation that was heating up quickly, no manager or assistant manager came to check out the situation. Poor management if you ask me. Needless to say I hope the rest of you reading this really reconsider your choice of where you'd like to have a great lunch or dinner, because this place isn't one to find it at. Take your money elsewhere. You're welcome.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our food was delicious. The prime rib sandwich was outstanding. We would eat here again!

We ordered the deep friend deviled eggs and cheese curds for starters. Cheese curds didn’t have much flavor and were pretty bland actually The deep fried deviled eggs were ok, nothing to rave about. All I could really taste was mustard in the filling. Chicken strips were bland as well. The bbq dipping sauce helped. I will say they give you big portions but the food was just average. I can tell that the manager runs a tight ship there and all of the workers were really working hard, not just standing around. The manager also came to check on each table, and was running food orders out to help out the staff. Our waiter was on top of it and was prompt with everything.

Kept driving by this place and finally decided to try it for lunch. Atmosphere was nice, the food portion size of the fish sandwich was HUGE, seemed almost wasteful. Cheese curds were good. Ended up spending $50 on lunch for 2 Adults and a corn dog for our 8yr old. Probably would not go back due to price and the other options in the area. Cute place tho.
