Nice casual with a touch of upscale feeling. Came for a couples night out and we're very impressed with the variety in the menu and enjoyed them all. I absolutely loved the vegetarian risotto and the wide variety of veggies used. We loved it so much we came back a few days later.

Hubby and I stopped here in our way to GR from the Eastside of the state. We split the Chicken Provolone sandwich and I had a side salad. They plated the sandwich before bringing it to the table, which was a nice gesture. Fresh side salad and the sandwich was fabulous. I have to mention that they allowed a lady... More

This place has been around for many years and we have probably eaten here at least 30 times. The menu is quite diverse with good sandwiches and burgers, salads, pastas and entrees. We especially like the gumbo, the bosc pear salad, the roast beef and classic meatloaf entrees and, of course, the carrot cake. It's huge- serves 4. They also... More

Absolutely Delicious. This was our first visit to this restaurant but it certainly will not be our last. The atmosphere is lovely, the service was wonderful and the food was fantastic. The wine list was excellent as well. Try this place, you will be happy you did so.

Everything was wonderful! Four appetizers and honestly couldn't pick a favorite, each one was fantastic! My daughter and I both got the Steak Benedict, my husband got the NY Strip and my son got the filet, each were prepared perfectly and absolutely delicious!! Service was fantastic! Very busy, I highly recommend you make a reservation!

I have had several opportunities to eat here this year when visiting family in the area. It's not the average bar and grille type food. They have very different and interesting dishes offered on the menu. I have tried several entrees and they were all outstanding and delicious! Desserts are wonderful as well. The service is top of the line.... More

Had the calamari for appetizer. I love the light batter and peppers. For entree, the pot roast was great. Excellent touch with some type of Chinese broccoli. Overall nice selection of wine and beers. Good service and decor. Don't let the bar & grill name food you. This is a full restaurant.

Thank bcsystems
