We stopped just to get a quick bite to eat before we went to our event. Most of the appetizers are 1/2 price and special prices on drinks from 3-6pm. Good and service were great!

I recommend the chicken or beef tips with gratin....delicious!!!! Sometimes the service is slower than we like but the food and friendly staff always make up for it!

I entered a little before 5pm to beat the crowd and get back to the hotel for more work on the computer.... At first, the service was great, my first glass of wine was a little off - I think the bottle was open too...More

This is the place to go for dishes to please those palates of different tastes! They have delicious salads, fish, beef, pork, chicken, mexican, & many pasta dishes. The fresh bread that first comes out is wonderful!!!

Always good service. Love the hot beef sandwich. Have never had a bad meal. Easy access. Can easily get in and out within the one hour lunch time frame.

We had lunch here with group from work. I really wanted the 50/50 burger (half beef and half bacon) but they were out. Instead I settled for the black & bleu burger. I was not disappointed. The burger was very juicy and very well prepared....More
