I was in a burger sort of mood, what can I say, pretty average but not bad. However, my friend got the Philly--no whiz, not even sure if whiz was offered but his looked way better than my burger. Service was prompt but not too...More

This is one of those places that you might drive right past. Do yourself a favor, watch for it and stop in! Quaint, local bar with a fantastic menu. We had the Ribeye Cheese Steak sandwich. It was awesome! Service was great!

We tried this restaurant for the first time this weekend. After looking over the reviews we tried the onion strings and Philly cheese steaks. We were pleasantly surprised! The food was much better than we expected. Definitely the best Philly cheese steaks we've had.

This is one of those places that would probably be classified as a dive. But WOW, the steak sandwich has to be the best one that we have had anywhere. We make a point of stopping in any time that we are in Bradenton.

I hadn't been to the boiler room in several years. I went today to have a cheesesteak with everything. It was loaded but not up to it's past standard. It just lacked flavor. I heard it might be under new ownership.

The best cheese steaks you can buy! Usually a wait- but so worth it! They have pool and other games to play or pick up. The best!

Not real fancy but great food. Great service and friendly crowd. Stopped by a few times this month for a cold beer and wings. My husband loves the cheese steaks.
