Great tasting western food, don't have to worry about what kind of food I'll get. Love the salads and never got sick. The outside area is such a relaxing place to chill, and easily accommodates large groups inside. You won't be disappointed!!

I love this place, off the beaten track but easily accessible. The food is delicious and a wide variety of western dishes is available. Portions are sizeable but not too large. Happy to wrap up so you can take away if you can't finish it....More

Family lunch here while on vacation. Milkshakes were good, but the hoggie rolls and Philly cheesesteak sandwiches were amazing!

Awesome waiters, quick service, cheaper prices and excellent food! For 1,000 you can grab a WIFI slip for 24 hours and it will NOT disappoint! A cool medieval place with tons of space and it's usually pretty quiet so it's a nice place to chill!...More
