We had a great lunch! We eat here often and it's always good - it is an "Old School" place with a banquet room atmosphire and a lounge circa 1973 and we dig it. I had oysters rockerfeller and my wife had the grilled salmon and we split the items. Both were fantastic and so was the service. We look... More

Quick and pleasant service. Burger was not dry and not at all greasy. Plenty of food. Restaurant was very clean. We ate after 7:30 mid week so was quiet.

The food is great the service not so much. We love the oyster's so have tried coming to Detetre's four times now and every time when we leave we are reminded why we will never want to come back. Maybe if you sit at a regular table the service is better but sitting in the bar area the service sucks.... More

Food is good and mostly homemade. We enjoyed our meals - both were tasty, fresh. Salads were well made and fresh. Desserts were exceptional. But the dining room was slammed so everything took a while. Our waitress was a bit flustered but we understood and she appreciated our patience. Definitely will try it again.

Ate a late lunch. The restaurant was mostly empty so we weren't sure about it. We went in anyway. The server was very nice. Drinks snd apps immediately. Slight delay on the main food. We thought for how empty it was the main food would have come out faster. Good selection and you get a lot for your money.

Close to the TA which is good if you drive a truck. Good fresh food at average prices. Service is good. Do not care for the smoky smell upon entering. Only thing that bothered us.

This is an old standard and has aged wonderfully. It is not fancy but the food and service are outstanding. The lunch menu has all the favorites and I heartily recommend their Greek salad, gyro, reuben, as well as appetizer selection. The escargot is perfect and I've never been disappointed. As noted, they permit smoking in the bar/lounge area. While... More
