Great wait staff. Restaurant, bathrooms bar area always clean. Plenty of TV's if you want to watch sports. Prices are good for the amount of food served.

went there for drinks with co-workers one night, and all of the food was good, but the staff did not come back to check on our drinks regularly, and the restaurant was not very crowded at the time.

Ended up here as our 1st two restaurant choices had close to an hour wait time. Upon arrival was fairly slow, waitress was prompt and pleasant. Then it got busy and her focus shifted to larger groups. Ended up with below average appetizers, cold, and...More

Three of us came here for an early dinner enroute to a show at the Raue. We were seated promptly, but then waited for a waitress to appear. Our dinners were served 25 minutes after our order was taken (three other tables occupied and six...More

Great place to watch sports and the staff was friendly. I had the XXL Indiana style pork tenderloin. It was about half of the ones I am familiar with in Indiana and rather chewy. My husband's Rueben was okay, but nothing special.
