If you don't know exactly where this place is, you will miss it even though it is right on the corner.
When you walk through the door you think you're walking into a bar--yes you are but there is a dining room on the side. It's not pretty or fancy but the food is good and the service is above average for a bar setting.
We shared a meal with an extra salad at the salad bar. There is a little of everything including peas and lots of veggies. The blue cheese dressing has to be hand made. Big chunks of cheese and a good tasting creamy dressing. We split a chicken dinner and it was plenty for both of us. The chicken was juicy with a light breading and very crispy on the outside. There was cooked pea pods for the veggie and several choices for potato including tater tots.
The bartender knows how to make a Manhatten and a G & T. The Manhatten comes in a small lowball glass and the G & T comes in a normal drink glass. The prices are good.
Definitely not a romantic place but it would be good for a bunch of people getting together for drinks and dinner.

My family LOVES the "Old Mil Club." We have been going there for YEARS. The waitresses treat us like their own friends, and the service is great. The salad bar is excellent, as is the Friday night fish fry, and chicken on Saturday. I have NEVER had better potato skins, and my husband swears by the burgers and pizza. When trying to decide where to eat, this place is a no-brainer. They also have two pool tables and a few games, like Pac-Man, and a nice Jukebox. We have had more fun playing pool and relaxing than I can say... 15 years and counting. Oh, yeah, the homemade soups are just right for a snowy or cold day. EXCELLENT!

While it may not look like a fine dining establishment from the outside, what goes on inside is pretty darn good. It is fairly typical Up North fare, but it is done with a touch of class that you don't expect from a local bar and restaurant. My wife had the ribs and I had the fried chicken. I debated on a burger of some type or the pork tenderloin. The burgers are hand pattied and the tenderloin is cut, tenderized and breaded on site. Our dinner salads were excellent with a mix of crisp greens, carrots, green pepper and croutons. The dressings may be homemade. All we know is they were good and delivered on the side. My wife was very happy with her ribs. You have a choice of sauces either hickory BBQ or sweet and spicy. The sweet and spicy was good but next time I would try the BBQ sauce. By the way the spicy part of the sauce would not be hot for many palates. My chicken was good but not outstanding. Not much to the breading. We both received green peas in the pod as a vegetable and my wife's sweet potato fries and my au gratins were both very good. The service was friendly and timely.
