The menu is extensive, and the prices are great. We had a BOGO coupon so thought we 'd try it out! Seated immediately, and place was clean. Our waitress was super attentive and helpful, without being in your face. However, I ordered a chopped steak...More

I used to avoid this place; not now. Big menu, lots of choices. Low prices. Nice atmosphere Waitresses can be average; but food is good. Crab Cakes, stuffed flounder, chicken-parm-all good. Even the chocolate pudding was good.
