My husband and I went to the factory for a date night after a long week. The place was packed with two large parties taking up the majority of the dinning room. You would think this would slow down service, but it didn't slow down...More

This is your basic huge portion American food place, but the food is nicely prepared and a good value. Niece loves the hot pretzels. Good for a family, with something for everybody and accommodating staff.

Service was fine, but prices were high for the food and food was not even great. Nothing that you can't make at home for 1/2 price. Not impressed with food, portions were reasonable, that I can say, but still when you pay $22 or more...More

So easy to forget as it is off the beaten path. When I had out of town visitors we were looking for someplace different, quiet. The order of steamers were perfect as were the perogies, 1/2 soup and sandwich, Turkey 1/2 was filled with a...More
