Service and atmosphere were subpar. Food was not great, had the Porterhouse steak which was cooked well done on one end and raw on the other. Baked potato was bland with only butter and sour cream. My wife's baby back ribs were burnt and the...More

Went to this restaurant for a birthday dinner and the food was bland, the decor was bland, and the service was terrible. Go to Longhorn or Outback.

The onion rings have too much bread and not enough onion. The bacon on the bacon-wrapped-scallops was not done. The seafood cakes were dry with too much bread. Asked repeatedly for water that never came.

We needed to wait for quite a time before being served. Steaks were o.k. but absolutely not at the level one can find in many places around Kent/Hudson. Some of the food was cold. Wine - simple but extremely overpriced, the most amazing thing was...More
