The food was wonderful just as the service. It wasn't too pricey and everything came out cooked to order. If you're in town and want a nice meal, this is the place. Very welcoming!

I waited 20 minutes for a second bowl of clam chowder, when I received it, it was a cup, not a bowl and it was cold. My wife's French onion soup was not served for 15 minutes. We ordered the smaller portion of chicken for our handicapped son and were charged for the larger portion. We had the $4 off... More

My family and I went for a late lunch...It was not crowded. The service was, eh, just OK. The food was only so so. Our salads, although, we ordered exactly the same thing looked very different, some with tomatoes, some with some cheese, mine had one crouton and one cucumber. The steaks came and again, were very varying sizes and... More

The last restaurant I reviewed, I focused on my salad. I will start this out the same way, except this salad was pathetic. A small salad made of iceberg lettuce with carrots, red onions, cucumber, tomatoes, cheese & croutons. Mostly lettuce. The meal was okay. My wife had Tilapia & I had a Ribeye. The steak was cooked correctly but... More

My husband and I split the 12oz ribeye which though a little tough, had great flavor! The big sweet potato n Caesar salad were nicely divided for us to share. We ate the loaf... More
