My husband's fish tacos were really tasty and my grilled chicken salad was very tender and marinated nicely. Our experience this time, on a Monday, was great. They were not packed for lunch. I caution everyone about the flooring; very slippery. The ceiling fans made the place too cold. Some of the tables and chairs wobble. Waitress Taylynn was excellent,... More

have eaten here numerous time & almost always satisfied. The salads are great. My favorite is the Italian. The wings are great with a variety of sauces. Don't care for their pizza. Good place to watch sport .

The food here is great. The Philly Cheesesteak and fish tacos are fantastic. A great selection of food and beer. I would suggest going before 5:30 because it tends to get busy especially on Friday and Saturday.

They have a gluten sensitive menu in the restaurant. They need to post it on line too. I live in CW.

Pizza is pretty good, but they have an extensive menu as well. Would give location a 5 but service is a little... More

We visited this place for the first time about a month ago. It was a nice place with the feel of Roosters but not as loud and busy. The food was just "okay". I got a french fry dish that included steak meat and cheese over fries. It came out cold and the meat was tough and chewy. My husband... More

The service is impeccable. The entire wait staff are so friendly and attentive. The food is typical American fare from burgers, hot dogs, subs and pizzas, but served in large quantities.
