The steak used to be better (Rib eye, not on the menu, but can be ordered), but the salads and burgers are still number one. A house salad is a meal in itself, and a great value. We usually sit in the bar as the...More

If I had a complaint about the order, I would start with the server...If they could not help, I would elevate it to the manager...then the owner and/or the Better Business Bureau. Hope this helps.
