We went with a group of 10 and had a good time. There were no problems trying seat that many people. The food is good with the chicken pot pie being what a lot of people stop in for. Service was good and the beers cold.

Went for dinner last night and they had a band which is okay unless you would like a quiet meal. Food was very good and priced okay. Will try again when they don not have music.

Went twice, once to see a band and once for dinner. I'd go back again, but only to the bar. I thought the dining area was outdated and the dinners were not great. On the plus side, our server was pleasant. My boyfriend enjoys their wings.

Wait staff is very friendly, the specials change daily. They offer apps, dinners and desserts. The portions are good, and menu is affordable. Only place I eat at in the area. Have local bands every Sunday night.

The meals taste prepackaged. The menu hasn't changed in at least 5 years. Although it's inexpensive, it's worth what you're paying for it. Service is sketchy. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. Should waitresses be wearing flip-flops?

The service is only excelled by the food- having stopped here three times this past year as a trucker- speaks volumes or - should. It is way above the norm!!
