This a a small home town country restaurant with a wildlife appeal. The decor is actual mounted animals which make for great conversations and pics. The beef is locally raised on the owners farms. Streaks so good you can cut with a butter knife. Sweet baked potatoes with cinnamon butter. Those are to die for!!! This is the type of... More

Been wanting to visit this place for years and it finally worked out. If you love the aroma of steak, then you will be happy when you walk in this place. Ordered the special, tomahawk ribeye. 40 oz. Tremendous in every way. Dave the bartender was great as well. I'm a bit of a steak snob and often enjoy pricey... More

You should expect more than mediocre from us, and I'm sorry we didn't show you our very best. It sounds like your service wasn't aligned with when your orders were ready, which is disappointing. We can definitely do better than this, and I'll follow up with my team to make sure we prove that in a future visit. Best, Chef... More

Found this place on the way home from the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It is of a side road near the interchange of 77 and 70. Started with the corn fritters which were very good but different than we expected. We thought they would have corn meal but it was pretty much straight corn but very tasty! My husband... More

Great wait staff. Food was fresh and hot when it arrived. We had salads with grilled shrimp and chicken. Dressings we're extremely fresh probably homemade. Salad was crisp. Grilled chicken was very tasty and cooked perfectly. Not dry AT ALL ! Also ordered line shrimp. Excellent sauce. !!! A+

This place has the best food in Cambridge even though it looks like a bar from the outside. Highly recommend it.

This casual restaurant has some of the freshest red meat ever! My husband, who does not eat red meat, is never disappointed with their fish entrees. The service is always efficient and staff is friendly and eager to meet individual needs.

I'm a little surprised to read this. As you mentioned, we do proudly serve only locally produced beef, so it's disappointing that your burgers didn't taste as you were expecting. I'm confused by your concerns over MSG, as it's almost flavorless and is really hard to detect from taste alone. It's mainly used in frozen foods and processed meats, which... More

Thank you, Richard, for letting us be part of such a fun, special family get together. There are few things I enjoy more than a cold beer and good prime rib -- I'm glad we're on the same page.
