Soup is very good and so is everything else. The dinners are large portions, wonderful fresh salads & a wide variety of pizza. Devore is fantastic with large display of northern animals & paintings from the area. Exciting to just walk through establishment. Great for family & friends. Nice sports bar also.

I use to eat here a couple times a month until we kept finding hair in our food. 4 different visits and hair in our food for different times. I was told by the waitress that the cook said it was just part of a mushroon will never eat there again!

Stopped in for drinks and and appetizers. Doesn't have a wine selection-house wine was poor. Appetizer combo plate was okay. Seems to be a local favorite.

I have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here. Breakfasts are really good, with large portions. There was a shrimp omelet on a previous menu, which was outstanding. For lunch and dinner, I mainly have had the great tasting pizzas. Children are welcome, and there is a bar. Besides having good food, it is fun place.

Good food. Amazing Sunday brunch. I have had steak dinners, taco salads, the ribs are generous portions. That was all on the old menu. Has a decent separate meeting area for private functions. Nice bar area for sports TV and in general seating area. Staff is normal in that some are right on their service and others are just kinda... More

The food is very tasty. The servers are friendly. They also have a garden where they use the produce for their restaurant. The ambience is very nice. it's can be casual or fancy, depending on the occasion. I would not say it's a family place since it's a bit pricy but for a special day it's good. I like the... More

Had lunch with my Wife after we took the glass bottom boat tour just down the street. The salad bar was the best I've seen in the recent past. Great selection and fresh. The pizza bar was all one could ask for. Great lunch at a reasonable price.

I have only once before sent a meal back and that went fine but this experience was pretty bad on many fronts. Minor first issue was one of our party (four people) getting their room temperature beer drink significantly later than the rest of us. The restaurant was completely out of all potato sides so we had to re-think our... More

Great food, help is good except they never have enough help to handle the bar crowds. Service then takes forever - orders are sloppy. Go during the day, it's a perfect place to dine!
