Positives include portion size and service. Negatives are slightly over priced and average food quality. Wings are good and many wing specials ($0.30 wings on the 30th of the month; all you can eat on Mondays). Won't do burgers less than medium which means they use the lower quality beef. Burgers are big but average. Buffalo chicken salad big but... More

Went there on a Monday. It was packed and hoping for some local craft beer. Mostly just national brands and got a half of one beer and half of another because the server didn't realize the keg kicked. Plus we sat there for 15 minutes while server did all the KENO requests. Ordered Chesapeake chicken and waited, and waited......40 minutes... More

We ordered the Philly cheesesteak, seafood quesadilla and the crab fries. The Philly cheesesteak was definitely a nice surprise. Plenty of meat and cheese and an excellent roll. It came with awesome seasoned fries. The crab fries were loaded with crab dip but leave off the green peppers, they overpower the taste of the crab dip. The seafood quesadilla was... More

Ordered the French Dip with fresh steamed veggies. Sandwich melted in my mouth and veggies were fresh, not frozen. Great place to relax and enjoy a nice lunch on a rainy day. 🤗

Food was good, and hot when it came from the kitchen. Wait staff was pleasant and attentive. Meal was inexpensive for lunchtime and I did enjoy it. However the atmosphere needs to be refreshed. A good paint job would help lots. Yes, I'll go back

Cup of enjoyable chili and a small Caesar salad and an attractive looking salad with Mandarin oranges. The salad with the oranges was just "off". Chicken requested served on the side was old and tired.

I know you are not supposed to eat like this anymore, but, I was in the mood for good old roast beef and mashed potatoes. I was delighted to have that come out piled on Texas toast smothered in gravy. DELIGHTED !! Service was great and everyone was super nice. I might even go back again today!!!!!

This place has such a great location, but it needs a major sprucing up. The food was nothing to speak of, and the place just seems dirty.
