“Delicious Breakfast”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

What can I say....this night club cooks one hell of a yummy breakfast. The pancakes are the size of a large dinner plate, the breakfast sandwich is outstanding, and the prices are reasonable. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a delicious, affordable breakfast in Alexandria Bay!

“Average at best”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

No rare prime rib. No baked potatoes - how can you be out of potatoes? No red meat period. Shrimp Scampi was on bread ?????? Had a coupon that they said was a mis-print. Hmmmm. Waitress had a dirty shirt on and we were the first people thier for dinner. We try it every year but the results are the same. Only thing consistent is the liver and onions are real good .........

“Nothing terrible, but nothing really good either.”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

My wife and her friend had Haddock that they said was okay. I had fried chicken that obviously came out of a box from the freezer. It wasn't good at all. To make matters worse they way over cooked it, too. We won't go back.

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

We ended up here when the restaurant we set out for was packed & no parking was available. We were a little wary, because the outside appearance looked like it was a bar first, with restaurant playing second fiddle. Inside, the bar area and dining room were well separated, and our server was friendly and accommodating. Two of us got crabcake dinners, which were downright cheap at 12.99 for two crabcakes with salad, vegetable and potato. Our third companion got the fish fry for 9.99. Unexpectedly good, and when I asked for tartar sauce, our server brought a generous condiment potful instead of the thimble-size portion most places dole out grudgingly,
By no means a fancy place, but it was clean & cheerful, with good service and nightly specials. We were satisfied, and would go back.

“Great local place. Good prices.”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

This is a great local place. Looks better inside than outside. Known for their famous Prime Rib and Fish Fry. A good place to stop for a good meal at a good price. Families welcome. Located on the main road between Abay and Clayton.
