To celebrate St.Patrick's Day we had a table here for six. The special short menu offered corned beef and cabbage and corned beef sandwiches. The trim was perfectly lean, and while portions were not large they were adequate. It was very busy and crowded but service was very good. The bar did a nice job on the martinis. Reservations are...

On business, had lunch here 3 days in a row. Perfect service, and tried the $8 lunch specials each time and was very impressed. The sandwiches were great, complimented with great homemafe soups.

This place is one of the best kept secrets in town. The food and drinks are a bargain, especially during happy hour 3 to 6 p.m. which are served in both the bar area and the main dining room. The award winning chicken chili is the best I have ever tasted. We eat here several times each month and have... More

Always check out the special board or ask your server. Our party had the Prime Rib special and the Met Loaf special and items off the menu. Food quality is phenomenal. Best meatloaf I've had since mom's and what could be better than bacon wrapped! Service is fast, friendly and efficient. Great drinks. Fun place for locals and local wannabees.... More

Stopped in for a light dinner. I had the chicken curry soup, the wife had a sirloin steak. The soup was extremely bland, but the steak was very good. Waitress seemed preoccupied and unfriendly. Might go back for another try.

We stopped in here after driving all day, and their menu is what I fondly call "up-scale" bar food. They have white-chicken-chili which was excellent, and we both had burgers, which were good, but nothing out of the ordinary. There seem to be lots of locals here having dinner, which is always a good sign, and it's right on the... More
