Tonight he had steak Chesapeake, NY strip or rib eye covered in a crab wine sauce and served with scallops. She had chicken medeira, Sautee chicken breast, asparagus, mushrooms and melted mozzarella cheese with mushroom medeira sauce plated with red... More

I've never been here with the exception of the Thanksgiving Buffet. There were simply masses and we were a part of a 30 person party. Service was slow but the servers were nice. The Buffet was better than expected and well stocked. I would say that's the food was the equivalent of Cracker Barrel.

This was our go to place whenever we went out to dinner. Our experience has been getting worse each time we go, tonight was the icing on the cake we will not be going back. Prices have increased over time, service is slower, and the food is poor. We ordered a medium steak and when it got to our table... More

It's a nice quiet place to eat. The food is great, but kinda pricey. Haven't been there for over a year so can't give it a up to date evaluation.

Three of us had good meals, though my meatloaf was not anything to write home about or to write a review about. Excellent service. I'd recommend this restaurant.

We have been here many times and will return many more. Good food, with an extensive menu at a reasonable price. There is a large nicely decorated dining area with an early American theme. It's called the Great American Saloon and that is the theme. The wood is really nice. The food and service are great, and there is a... More

A local tip sent me here for the ribs. The ribs were a large portion and they were very good. The real issue was the cream of crab soup was served just warm and I expected more substance. It was more cream than crab. I ordered the creamed spinach as a side and it was served at or below room... More

Suffice it to say DON"T waste you money there. The staff was beyond rude and they conned people who were there into paying cash by saying their credit card machines had "gone down".
