Interesting and fun loving atmosphere. Something for everyone's on the Menu Selection. I agree with some of the previous reviews. If you are a non-smoker, then maybe you may need to go someplace else, but if you can stand the smell of stale smoke and want some good EATS. Great Seafood selections. The Roast Beef Sandwich is Deeeelicious !

The beef sandwiches are excellent--the best in town, but if you are a non smoker think about take out. Would get higher score if not for the place reeking of smoke. Also, suggestion for management....please consider offering fries or onion rings instead of bags of chips.

My mouth is watering just thinking about the scrumptious Italian beef sandwich. The tastiest beef filled sandwich I've ever put in my mouth. Tons of beef, seasoned perfectly, delisious cheesiness, garlic flavored bun make up this fantastic treat. It comes with a small bag of chips and a perfect pickle. If you ever get to the Lowell area this is... More

So... We will definitely order take out but... More

I had heard a lot about the Lake Dale Ale beef sandwich, but I had to try it for myself. This sandwich is huge for starters. You get your money's worth of beef and mozzarella. The bread is delicious and doesn't fall apart while you're eating it. I only had the italian beef and mozzarella but this sandwich was truly... More

Top of the line beefs from presentation all the way to eating it as a midnight snack! Quality and consistency never waiver. Absolutely recommend this spot for the beefs and all other sandwiches!!! Not to mention the staff is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Also the cook is a sight for sore eyes
