This restaurant does not disappoint, and if you want lots of food, this is the place. Great variety, even a sweet potato to die for. My sister had their pulled pork, and she said it was better than Texas. My husband and I split the rib eye and it was drlicious, even brought some home. Great restaurant, good service too.

This is our favorite place for dinner in Salem. If you are craving some good steak dinner, this is the place to go. Order your steak with Demi Glace sauce and make sure to upgrade your side salad to "Harvest Salad". You will love it!

We were treated to lunch here as an anniversary gift; it was our first visit. Our meals were well-prepared, service was quick and friendly, and the restaurant was quiet enough for conversation to happen. This was a weekday about 11:30, so don't know what other days and times are like. The warm rolls with honey butter were oh so good... More

I love going to this place. Meals are generous, food is fantastic, atmosphere is great. I love the steak salad for lunch, steak dinner for later. You can order all the extras for your potato, steak is cooked the way you want it. Never have had a bad meal there.

If you're looking for a place that serves delicious food, has friendly servers and a huge menu, you won't be disappointed! We order their freshly made rolls for our Thanksgiving family dinner...that's how great they are!

We go a lot for dinners and graduations if not that as a couple or friends for their fantastic martinis. I'm not a big drinker but these are the best I've even been to the places in Reno and Vegas where they serve 100 or more and these compare and or maybe taste better. The food is also usually very...

The mini-golf course (18 holes), out back, is well-manicured, and pleasant to play alongside the roaring water. It is obvious they have put a lot of thought and effort into that experience, as they have the food. I found the b-b-q pork ribs to be especially well-prepared--tender and jiicy inside, with just a little crisp to the outside, generous portion... More

Just after finishing doubleheader softball games in a senior men's tournament we stopped at this restaurant for some well needed food and beverages. It was during happy hour so beer was discounted and food was from the lunch menu. My husband had a sirloin steak with a loaded baked potato that he said was very delicious. Along with this he...
