I attended a private party on the 2nd floor. The room was set up nicely. The food--fried chicken, au gratin potatoes, green beans--was tasty. The waitress was pleasant and attentive.

Just returned from Italy. The food here is as good or better than what we had at Italian 5 star establishments.

Wednesday is a fried chicken special. Dinner included a half chicken, salad, choice of potato, side of spaghetti or tortellini. All this for less than $12. Chicken was deep fried to golden brown and was extremely tasty. Everything was very good but much more than I could.

Conveniently located near the court house and the Pontiac museum, as well as other down town attractions. Better than average, family style dining. They have a full bar too.

Best restaurant in Pontiac. I got the lasagna and it came out just right. Not in the area too often, but I'll definitely come back when I'm in town.
