Restaurant has a bar with booths and a few tables around the bar, there is also a dining room. Rustic and can be loud. Always great food, great service and wonderful atmosphere. Can be busy, weekends reservations a must.

The food and selection are good and plentiful with servers that are friendly and efficient. The bar is very popular and fills up quickly butt he two dining areas provide comfortable seating. Although there are always specials, I always seem to order one of three items off the regular menu.

I had the best skirt steak the other night here! Be sure to ask for medium rare otherwise they can burn it. The service is very nice! Great local place to hang out. They have the best burgers and fried chickens too.

We haven't been to this restaurant in 25 years....for a reason. On a whim, we tried it again last Friday night. The place was crowded so we thought maybe it had improved. The seats in the booth were ripped and uncomfortable and the food was just as bad as we remember it. The fried shrimp was burnt and hard. The... More

Two couples for dinner. Whitefish was nicely prepared and enjoyed by two people. Fried perch was so so. Chicken kabob was enjoyed. Food was reasonably priced. Very noisy and difficult to converse.

This is the place for great food and a welcoming atmosphere. Who cares if it gets a little noisy sometimes. You would think a restaurant would get old after all this time - not so! We were there recently with our son and his young children. It is a perfect family place. Pedro, the waiter was especially nice to the... More

Great food at reasonable prices. Check out their specials. This is a place you could eat at every day. Home cooked meals and a great variety.

Family run, extensive menu and great service! A local institution with friends meeting and endless repeat customers are obvious. Owner is friendly and solicitous to each table. Reasonable prices top it off!

A great cozy place to go! Bar is small and crowded, always, but short wait on a busy night goes quickly. Food is always good!!

Although we love the food, the service and the ambiance of this little bar/ restaurant, the noise level was so loud and annoying, we couldn't talk and hear each other at our own table. We went on a Saturday night at 6:30. There wasn't a single party or table making noise, this was the general din of the restaurant. We... More
