We visited on Saturday evening. The restaurant was not very crowded. While the service was good, it wasn't great, the food was good but not outstanding, one friend's baked potato was cold, one was perfect. I ordered Prime rib, it was good, but a little over cooked (I ordered medium) fried squash was bland, fries were hot but needed salt.... More

The special was blue cheese crusted lamb chops, which sounded yummy. A friend and I were both disappointed. The chops were unevenly cut, the cheese tasted processed, and the meat may have come from a sheep, not a lamb. Another friend sent back her scallops because they were excessivley salty. The replacements were no better. To their credit, the restaurant... More

We stopped here for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The food Prime Rib was superb. Loved the atmosphere, lots to admire from the wood bar to the models on the wall. Would absolutely eat here again!!

In the last 2 weeks. Good breakfast. Fresh coffee Also near where I stay and open early. Sometimes looks like they need more help. Today I ordered one breakfast and got something else, but I ate it anyway. Not a big deal. I hear they have good dinners, but I haven't given that a try yet. Easy in and out.... More

We went here for Queen's Feast 2017. The atmosphere is casual and the service was ok even though I felt they were short-staffed. The scallops and filet mignon were generous portions and cooked well. The chocolate mousse cake is moist and not overpowering.

Lots of better places to eat. Service was good. Asked for medium rare burger, it was well done. My wife asked for medium rare steak salad and it was well done too. We had been driving all day and just needed food. Won't go back.

I love this place. You can get a very nice breakfast for under $10 with Coffee . The eggs are cooked perfectly and no grease on the plate. The Rye Toast is also very good. I have also had a dinner meeting with the men's club and they can handle a large party very easily. There were at least 20... More
