The food is always fresh and tasty, portion usually more than you can eat, the deserts are killer, and they have a full bar. Good variety and always something for everyone.

This place was a best pick, the food is OK nothing special, the service is good and the servings are big. Steak chicken and big sandwiches are there specialty. I not saying the food is not good, its just not as good as it was.

The porkchop lunch was a huge portion. I had left overs for dinner. They were absolutely tasty! It is a popular place to grab a weekday lunch!

Lots of locals eat here and its has a variety of what you'd expect on any menu anywhere. Food is good but we prefer the local seafood restaurants.

The penne with Italian sausage was bar-none the worst sauce and preparation I have ever tasted. A giant plate of goo. I would have given this place a 1 star if the prices weren't as reasonable.

This place always has a crowd so be prepared to be seated. The wait is worth it. Excellent sandwiches and steaks. A real local place not to be missed. Try it once and you will be a regular.

This is one of those local hangouts that you hear about. The food is good and the atmosphere good. It's not a fancy place, but great for a cheap meal out.

We had so a good time listening to The Trashy White Band and Olivia's singing that we came back the next night.
