Our of us had delicious meals. Huge portions, you can definitely order the 1/2 portion (where available) and have plenty to eat. Other reviews complain about waiting--I think the timing of the service was fine. We wanted a relaxing meal and got one.

Nothing extra frilly about this place. Good tavern and restaurant with Old World decor. When possible, get their beef ribs. They're huge and delicious.

The wrap was very delicious, mango salsa was fresh and the onion rings were very yummy! Waitress originally said they had wheat wraps but no longer have them/carry them. They originally said they would give... More

My husband and I picked up take-out here to take back to our hotel room. He had a Philly Cheesesteak wrap, and I had the garlic-herb chicken with rice. Both were very good, and the price was reasonable.
