This bar and grill has excellent customer service from the moment you walk in. The atmosphere is family friendly in the day and turns into a bar with live music at night.

Order your greek dinner or cornbeef and cabbage early in the day so you will not be disappointed! They tend to sell out quick. It is sooo yummy. These specials are served every Thursday.

Very welcoming staff. We all had the T-bone steaks. Very tasty but over cooked. We ordered medium rare and it was medium well. Will go back though since the service was excellent and food was tasty. We will just order rare next time!
