Stopped in for the 2 for $ 20.00 special and it was well worth it. Ordered up the Steak and baked Potato along with the Spinach Dip. A great dinner.

Food is good. Average chain fair, Monday burgers are $5 so that's a good deal. Nice, friendly wait staff. Drinks are pretty watery.

Waiter, Keith is excellent in his professional guidance with customers and service. His kindness is appreciated and attention to requests. This place is very clean and orderly. Food is served hot and to personal taste. The waitress' & waiters work very hard to keep customers satisfied.

We were staying at the hotel next door and decided to go for a quick bite. The new menu was great, the salmon was delicious and you can now order dessert from your table without waiting haha Great place to go chill and watch a game too.

I have been to this restaurant many times. The food and service are good. The portions are VERY plentiful and I usually take home leftovers. The location is very convenient for both highway 65 (Central Avenue) and 694.
