This is one of our regular places because the food is great, the prices are reasonable, and the service is quite good. Love the variety in the menu and the specials they offer. They also are very careful with food allergies.

I had the steak sandwich and my wife had the open faced pot roast sandwich. Both were outstanding, possibly the best steak sandwich I have ever had. Then I had a piece of the coconut cake... Awesome!! Don’t miss this place!!

I didn’t enjoy my entree ( Parmesan encrusted walleye) , but I believe I just ordered the wrong thing. The restaurant was packed with a line to get in. Staff was very nice.
