You can certainly count on this restaurant to be consistent with all dishes served. I have never had a bad experience with anything from an appetizer to an entree. The menu is unique in its own right. I would recommend the crawfish dip and if you are looking for something simple you won't go wrong with a delicious burger cooked... More

Get a reservation, if you can. Don't worry, it's not a stuffy restaurant and there is something for everyone on the menu. The hamburgers are big juicy and delicious. The salads are also excellent. I recommend the Cowboy salad with grilled chicken, yummy! Parking can be a bear but worth every bit the trouble.

Should have had the Rueben Egg Rolls. Steaks looked good and would be worth a try next time around. Was there Valentines day and service was a bit... More

Looked for something outside of a chain and something downtown. Had to make the one way loop a couple of times, but found ample parking nearby and discovered that there is good food other than on the main business strip elsewhere. The food is good, the service attentive and friendly, and the drinks reasonable. In fact, one drink was totally... More
