We've had dinner here several times and it's usually pretty good, but this time we were disappointed. I had the salmon, it was very small portion and the vegetables were under cooked. My friend ordered her steak medium and it was very well done and super dry and chewy. She was unable to eat it. If we return, I will... More

The most reasonably priced good breakfast I've had lately. Good mimosa and Bloody Mary Breakfast specials are great

Been going here for over 30 years...it's a different name now but the food is still good, the service is good all in a very relaxing atmosphere. Big leather booths are comfortable and make eating a joy... Relax, eat, watch the game or not...

Horrible! It took us an hour and a half to get our food, they weren't that busy. Absolutely Ridiculous!

After the horrible service, the blonde 50's something that hates her job, and no coffee for over 10 minutes, I concluded she hates her boss...

Great dinners of comfort food like Meatloaf, Pot Roast, Chicken Marsala, and steaks. The service here is always excellent and the drinks in the bar are a great way to start an enjoyable evening at the Point.

I got the Groupon for four, which allowed us two appetizers, four entrees and four drinks. Before going to the restaurant, I carefully studied the reviews, which worried me a bit since many were unfavorable. I noticed many of the negative comments referred to slow service. We actually prefer slow service because we like to prolong the dining experience, so... More

I like the variety of choices on the menu. The salmon is my go to item. Steaks and burgers are also great. The price is reasonable.

We like the location of this place and they have a great bar. Hubby always goes for the prime rib, I tend to lean toward their pasta dishes. Service and be hit and miss at times, but what can you do. Great place to walk to in the summer so you can have a few yummy drinks!
