Service was great, food was quick and very tasty. In and out in less than an hour during a busy Saturday lunch time. Impressed! My club sandwich was huge and was so much more than I was capable of eating. I'll be going again.

Noisy as ever but the food and service make it worthwhile. I usually have the excellent marinated chicken breast with bbq sauce but am branching out.

Arguably one of the two Cadillacs of the local restaurant businesses. Service topnotch. Your drink glass will never be empty. Food numero uno.

Overall a good restaurant. Had filet cooked to order. French fries are great. I was a bit disappointed when my dinner salad was served with hard boiled egg.
