Didn't care for the food here at all. Service was fine but the menu is limited to basically pub fare and I disliked my Reuben sandwich immensely although my husband said the fish sandwich was ok. Would never go back.

Loved this place. The bottomless salad was amazing with the homemade hot yeast rolls with honey butter. Oh my, it was so delicious. The menu has many choices so we will definitely be back, especially for dessert. I ordered the pork breaded steak and it was delicious. It comes with 2 sides plus your bottomless salad. The dressing for the... More

We came with a big group. We had a reservation. I understand it can be intimidating when 25 people walk in the door, but our waiter was not happy. Don't know what happened but he looked like he didn't want to wait on us, especially when we requested several different checks. When another large party came in, he jumped ship... More

Always good food, best yeast rolls anywhere and very casual atmosphere. Everyone loves throwing peanut shells on the floor too! Bottomless salad is varies each time...just tell your server if you don't want something, like onions or peperoncini, and they'll make it that way. Steaks are always great, but their burgers and fish are good too!

Good food. Service is sometimes indifferent, but mostly good. If you leave hungry it is your fault. The house salad is very good and all you can eat.

Our salads had huge chunks of ice in them. Our stakes were really fatty. The rolls were the best part they were delicious.

Enjoyed the three course steak deal for $13. Service was ok, could of been better. There was a fly that bugged me the whole time though, annoying! Wish restaurants had an easy way to get rid if these peaty insects! Totally ruins the whole experience.
