Classic, old school American fare. Food is always good, portions are big & great service. One of my favs.

I have actually been frequenting this restaurant for a number of years when I am visiting family. First let me say that this restaurant, located in a fast paced busy city, is a sort of quiet welcome oasis. It is especially senior friendly. I take my mother here, who is well into her 80's, whenever I am in town. Let... More

After having driven by this local restaurant for many many years, we finally decided to try it out. We were pleasantly surprised to find such a nice, upscale place just around the corner from us! The atmosphere is a bit dated, however the food was very good and the service was spot on. The menu is varied, 2 of us... More

I have been here two times as a guest. Today, I decided that even as a guest, I will not return. With a main meal with soup or salad averaging about $24/25, the value, taste, presentation and wait staff are just not there. The salad was wilted with a dollop of dressing on top. My veal/shrimp dish had two over-cooked... More

I was there for a banquet. The food was not nearly warm enough. The lasagna was especially cool. I could not eat it.

This restaurant is in my neighborhood. If you are searching for a restaurant that has great prime rib and delicious food at a reasonable price, this is the place to go. The place is nicely decorated. They have great service and the food is very good. Their price will not break the bank. We went here for Valentine's Day one... More

I had not eaten there for a long time. The food was really good back then. Last week we went for a banquet, the meet and the chicken were tough with no flavor. Service was poor. I asked for Coke and the waiter said that it was on the serving table. The waiters didn't look clean and either the restaurant.... More

We have discovered the Three Flames restaurant and like it. It is close to our house, they have Prime Rib and serve it the way you ask for it. The Prime Rib is seasoned well and tastes great. The prices are reasonable for the Bay Area. Not a super fancy place, but it is quiet, you can converse with your... More

Our lovely neighbors took us to dinner a couple of weeks ago to this restaurant. Although I'd driven by it many times, I had never stopped to eat there. It always looked to me like one of those steakhouses that cater to large groups celebratnig birthdays and weddings. We walked in and, sure enough, there were dozens of people leaving,... More

Saw this place online when searching for an upscale place to eat at. It had stellar reviews and the restaurant website seemed up to par, so I came to check it out myself. Although the service was great and the food tasted wonderful, I'm gonna have to say for the portion size and the atmosphere, it was slightly overpriced. Plates... More
