The food is surprisingly tasty and generous. For $15 you get soup AND said, entree, plus dessert! I had salmon, baked potato and a vegetable plate. Service is swift and caring. The only thing challenging about the place is that it has not been upgraded...More

Treated family, cocktails, wine, six large plates of meat, soup, salad, garlic bread and pudding. Meat portions large, couldn't finish my prime rib. The bill just over $200. The night before for 4 just under $200 and not as much food, can't go wrong.
