While our food was good, the restaurant was pretty dirty. The ceiling tiles were stained, the bathroom was dirty, and the waitress coughed on the tray as she was handing my husband his plate. Pretty gross. The food was good, but based on the cleanliness of the restaurant, I would not return.

Twenty five minute wait after ordering. It appeared to be a very slow night. My wife had salmon which she said was good. My salad was wilted and too cold. My pork chop tasted fine. The accompanying augratin potatoes were luke warm at best. The server asked me if I wanted to talk to the manager, and I said no.... More

Certainly not fancy but always dependably good American food which is always available @ G. Subu's Leather Bottle! My husbands choice of a 6 ounce tenderloin prepared perfectly rare along with salad & fresh steamed vegetables hit the spot. I chose an occasional treat: calves liver smothered in onions and some delicious sweet potato fries to share. The warm buttery... More

We do a family Christmas Dinner at G Subus every year. There are 45-50 people. The staff does a awesome job every year. My favorite dish is fillet. Everyone is happy with their meal. There are a couple people that are tough to please. Everything runs smooth every time at G Subu's.

Haven't been here in years, we decided to give it another try. Ordered spaghetti and lasagna both came with salads and very over done bread. Bread was hard, butter even harder, when I asked if bread was always this hard, waitress responded with, "some of it is". We were the only customers at four in the afternoon and can't understand...

Over the past 20 years we've eaten here about 7 or 8 times. Every time we come to the same conclusion - it's a good place to fill your belly but it is not fine dining by any means. On the plus side, the chicken fingers appetizer is excellent but the entrees were very lackluster, like the quality you would... More

The pasta is made fresh and shipped to the restaurant daily. The staff are always friendly. My wife loves their alfredo sauce. They run daily specials, I usually order from the specials menu. They have a full service bar that includes ice cream drinks like Pina Colada. They also have numerous beers on tap. If you go, try the stuffed... More

Even though I was there for a memorial meal, they (the staff) was very accommodating to all who were there. The food wasn't bad (family style meal). Plus they didn't "kick" anyone out because of time constraints. Enough parking even if there were a lot of people. Think Penna's, but on a smaller scale.

A favorite spot for our family and friends to meet for good food, a drink or two at the bar with a appetizer, or to have a pizza. Fairly priced and very generous portions. Weekends feature quality entertainment to enjoy with your meal.
