Though I'm glad you were able to check our place out, I'm disappointed to hear service fell short -- you should always feel well taken care of when you join us for a meal, and I'm sorry to hear that wasn't the case. I do want to clarify that everything on our menu is made fresh in-house and even locally... More

Wonderful place to eat. Service is always great. Food terrific. But, be warned they are small and they fill up fast. If you go during peak times prepare to wait. But, it will be worth it. Steaks are very good!!

Mmmm, delicious food! The burgers here were delicious, made from Ohio beef. I totally recommend the mushroom swiss burger. It was extremely large so I only ate part of it. I recommend cutting it in half if you are unsure of how much you will eat. The salads were very good. We had the special of the quesadilla appetizer which... More

This is so awesome! Our mushroom swiss burger is a favorite of mine too, so it makes my day that you enjoyed it. Next time you get the chance to eat with us, you have to try one of our pies. I can tell ya, they taste even better than they look. Thanks for the great review. Best, Chef Steve More

We were looking for a late night dinner between Canton and Cambridge off of I-77. This is the place! The menu focuses on steaks with a few other options. The starters are generous, especially the fried fresh mushrooms. The guys loved the steaks and picked from a variety of add-ons. The service was excellent! Friendly and accommodating. This a good...
