I was happily surprised to see broiled scallops on the menu and they were delicious. My husband had the Prime Rib which he enjoyed also.

We did our annual golf outing lunch and with 175 members and family style chicken, Swiss steak, potatoes, dressing, gravy, slaw, etc. which was quite tasty. The microphone worked perfectly and it appeared a good time was had by all!!'

Nothing spectacular. Food was average but waitress was very pleasant. Certainly nothing to write home about.

Went on a weekday early evening. There was a business meeting and a couple of family birthdays going on. There were only two of us yet we were told that we would be called when a table was available even though tables were empty?? Waited about 20 minutes...finally went up to the hostess desk...then she said it wouldn't be too... More

Nothing to get excited about here. Just another supper club with a really big local following so it can be uard to get in at times. Prime rib is a 6 out 10 and that was about the best thing abyone had. Very salty food which is typical for most supprr clubs. Nice little town. Not much going on there.

The only thing going for this place is the salad bar. There is nothing spectacular about the food here. I would even say it's a good old fashion supper club that the townspeople flock to for certain menu items. I would not waste another penny eating at this restaurant.

This place is homey, but desperately needs an update to keep up with prices...salad bar is just a notch below grocery store quality...main entree made up for it mostly. Wish there were vegetarian options. Shrimp was pretty good though..

Food was great, more than you can eat, especially if you order the chicken. Prepare to use a take-home box. The salad bar came with the meal. Don't fill up on the salad and soup with the four of us did. We took home enough for one more meal, which I like. Service was quick and waiter friendly. After you... More

Went for a birthday celebration and found out that you get a discount based on your age. Needless to say my mother in law got 70% off! It was our first time and the food was great.
