We have eaten there several times over the years and had them good and so so food probably depending on the chef. This time the food was good. We had Prime Rib. Service was a bit slow, but it usually is there. Sometimes I think they cater to the people in the bar before the dining room. Just my opinion!!

The atmosphere is nothing fancy. The food is mediocre for the prices. My salad had. Brown lettuce and the bottom core from the Romaine. We wanted some wine but they store the wine upright. Not good. The prices don't reflect the waitstaff. Shorts on with tattoos on her leg. You would expect more class than that. I'm by no means... More

Pass by here often and finally stopped in. Everything was very well done!. Service, food & Bloody Mary's. Wife said it was the best Linguini & Clam Sauce since Rome. I had the halibut, I had been craving and thought it was perfect. The place is known more for their steaks, so that will be next visit. Nicely done dinner.... More

This restaurant is tucked into a nondescript strip center. I have been told it has the same owners as the upscale grocery market also in the same strip center which would explain the high quality of their food. It is small and the menu has a limited selection but the quality of everything is fantastic. The filet mignon was wonderful,... More

Greatly enjoyed dinner here. It is good food and reasonably priced. I highly recommend their tortilla soup and the prime rib. They have a special on Tuesdays on the prime rib. What a deal!!

The new owners a few years ago did a nice job upgrading the decor and food at The Junction. Burger special during the week is terrific and the nightly dinner specials are well priced and delicious. Service is slow.

My wife and I had lunch here not too long ago and we were quite disappointed. She had a hamburger that was so overcooked it looked like, and tasted like a hockey puck. My burger was better, but fries were just warm. The service was amazingly slow. We've eaten here numerous times over the years, but a change of ownership... More

My wife and I have eaten here a number of times though not recently. In a steak mood, we decided to stop come here for dinner. My wife has a filet mignon that was cooked just right, but lacked any flavor at all. I ordered a rib eye steak and what was served to me was actually rancid. It was... More
