Nice variety of sandwiches, soups, entrees, and desserts -- named after movie and TV stars of old. Lots of photos of long-ago stars on the walls. Staff is very nice. Restaurant is clean where seating is located, but if you're super particular about the cleanliness...More

The piano music in the background is the best. The entire dining experience was really relaxed and gave me a little time to unwind after a busy day. The food is great, and the portions are really generous. The waiter was really friendly too.

Lot's of nostalgia to check out here! This is a really nice alternative to so many generic restaurants. Food was tasty and the prices were reasonable. Note for sandwiches: the sides/fries are extra- a la carte. BUT- free popcorn!
