The service here was, for lack of a better word, awesome! The food that we had was prepared right and served up with passion. I definitely would stop here again if the timing is right. The atmosphere is very unique compared to the area. We enjoyed our experience here and won't soon forget it!

A very friendly and personable staff was a great start. The buffet had the traditional Thanksgiving fare, which was great. In addition, there was excellent Mac & cheese, beef... More

The entire place was like Cheers, with everyone singing along, knowing your name, dancing and being silly and fun. The dinners we had... More

We have been seeing this place and finally stopped for an early dinner on a friday. We both were not impressed with the atmosphere (more of a bar) but the waitress Jenna was a gem. Ordered coffee but it smelled like it was on the burner for a very long time (Jenna kindly took it away). Now the soup (clam... More

Mary and her employees always make you feel welcome here, both at the bar and the dinning rooms. I prefer the bar and especially like their array of wines and beer. But the food is good, too.
