“Great Romantic Atmosphere and good food”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

White table clothes with a candlelight dinner. It was very romantic and worth every penny. Cheapest steak is $23, but it is still worth it if you have the extra money to spare.

“Really fun, older crowd - great waitstaff”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

I was surprised at the demographics of the crowd on a Saturday night. Most are mature, retirees or soon-to-be retired, and they all want to have a great time. The bar tenders know how to mix a good drink, and the food is well prepared and nice proportions. If there's any doubt, you can have faith that you can ask the staff about anything, and that they will be candid. They all seem to really like working there, so you'll get honest guidance if you're not sure of your dinner selections. I really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere, and the people who seemed to be regulars, as well as the staff. Pricilla runs the bar and she's right on top of it!

“A restaurant like "Cheers"”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

This restaurant is in an area where there are few options, but fortunately it is there to turn to. A friendly atmosphere that reminds one of the setting of "Cheers". There are no Sams nor Dianes, but the food and drink are both acceptable....not great....but prepared nicely and served at a reasonable price. This is a good option if you need a place that is reliable in this area.

“Very old school but great!”
Reviewed 28 February 2012

This place reminds me of what the Pasadena area must have been like in the 40's and 50's. The decor hasn't changed- low ceiling, dark and bar probably hasn't changed in 50 years. Staff and food were great- nothing special just a good all-around experience. It definitely has the feel of the corner bar/restaurant you'd find back in Chicago or Detroit. Worth a trip!

“Alright if you know what to expect”
Reviewed 31 August 2008

The food was very good, the service also wonderful; while we enjoyed ourselves, the building was dated and restrooms very run down.

There were many seemingly regulars, and my husband remarked that he felt like we were in Bakersfield.The food really was delicous, but we were not prepared for old Christmas lights, fake flowers and 70's wood paneling.They held a very nice booth for us and were very gracious, so I feel badly leaving a review that is less than glowing.
