I love their Chicken Philly, and waffle fries. They have a spicy ranch dip for the fries that is so amazing. Usually I can't the whole sandwich and fries so I take them home and I will reheat heat them on a cookie sheet in the oven and the fries crisp up and so does the sandwich. I can honestly... More

Had the ribs and they were excellent. The special was Jack's chicken and there were 4 pieces of chicken with 2 sides. The side salad was very generous. The service was very good. Restaurant was VERY busy, which usually means the food is good! The place is quite noisy though.

Live right next to it in Sonoma APT so within walking distance. A go to spot for friends and date night with my boyfriend. Never had a bad experience, have a bus that goes to the Sioux games so that's handy.

Lacey, the waitress did an awesome job with satisfying the lady I was with. The Reuben she order was not to her liking, Lacey fixed it. I did have to fight off one house fly and 3 fruit type Fly's from drinking my Coke and eating my steak. Thank you Lacey for the great service, Robert J Landon

Had dinner here based on a recommendation for our local hotel front desk. Nothing really bad to say, it was simple an average place with good food at a reasonable price. Nothing fancy,but nothing bad either - simply a reasonable place to eat while in town.

We were at this restaurant as a family. The steak was made perfect for medium rare and was not over seasoned like other restaurants do. They have many sides and catered to a request for a small up charge to have kids Mac & Cheese as a side with a steak that 2 kids were splitting. That was sensational. The... More

Oh. My. Goodness!! The food is just absolutely fabulous! From the appetizers to the sandwiches to the dinners, every item on the menu is wonderful. What makes the dinning experience even better is the wonderful staff! I have never had a bad, poor, or even fair experience. Every time I enter this restaurant the staff is wonderful!
