Two adults and two children ---chicken tenders weren't a big hit with the kiddos but were with the adults; kids brunch with scrambled eggs, bacon and fruit(huge hit); taco salad was amazing; rusty burger was delicious--reason for the 4 stars---service wasn't the greatest

My husband and I went here at least once a month. He loved the Cowboy steak and ale. They took this off the menu. He hasn't Found anything comparable on the menu.

In Dayton for a funeral, staying down the street, recommended by hotel clerk. Very nice place with a warm inviting atmosphere with a large menu and exceptional service. Kind of a cross between sports bar and fine dining. Outside Dayton Mall with lots of competition but you can't go wrong with this pick. Thank you Valerie for the top notch... More

Our group met here for lunch and we had a nice time. The restaurant wasn't crazy busy at the time we came so we were able to sit and talk for a while. We all ordered salads and they were very good. Waitstaff was extremely prompt in providing anything that was needed.

The burgers are amazing, shrimp scampi is very spicy. The bread pudding is to die for. Service was lack luster and the wait to get our food was pretty long. It is a bit expensive for bar food.

My wife and I met another couple for brunch at noon on Sunday. I ordered the biscuits and gravy. I was told by my server that they were out of gravy and wouldn't have more until the cook came in. What..? There's no cook for brunch..? So I ordered the breakfast sandwich. I have never had anything at McDonald's that... More

Food was greasy and service was poor. Waitress was rude and took a long time to get silverware. They may need to change the grease in their deep fryers more often. Wife loves their deep fried pickles and she said they came to the table hot and greasy. Not the best, doubt we will ever be back.

This is a cool place... The staff was vibrant and energetic. The food was hot and flavorful. Many choices to select from and you don't leave feeling hungry. There was a very short wait for a table... I prefer sitting at the bar when traveling, but that was packed which in my opinion means you have a great place... Go... More

Staff are friendly and attentive. Broad selection of beers to choose from. Food is standard sports bare fare. We had burgers that were average. Food was warm, not hot when served.

Yes they have great food. I like to relax after a long week and to have a Red Sangria on their heated patio. Well I must say my husband and I both enjoy very much!
