Probably one of the worst and most expensive places I have ever been to. There are always cars in the lit when I drive by, so I thought we would try it after Hollydazzle. Big mistake. Atmosphere - Bad 70's. Our table for 6 was so rickety that when my 4 year old leaned on it, I thought it would... More

I usually pick up lunch or dinner when I'm crunched for time. It was the perfect place to pickup a quick meal. Notice I said - was. I won't be going back. When reviewing my credit card statement I noticed they tacked an additional $3.00 on my takeout order for the tip. Granted, it's only $3.00 - not enough to... More

We live near this restaurant and have driven past it many times, always saying, "We need to try that place, it's always so busy." Well, we tried it and once was enough. It is very outdated....which would be fine if the food was good. I knew we were in trouble when the bread was brought out, and it was simply... More

We decided to go here, because we were craving steak ... and well, it's a steakhouse. I hadn't been here in at least a decade and I don't know if my taste buds have matured or if the quality has always been this bad. Either way, it was not satisfying and it was an expensive meal to be such a... More

Since the original owners have passed away, the customers do not get the attention as in the past, and the quality of the food has deteriorated. The service is not good, as there is a tremendous turnover of staff. The servers talk to each other by yelling across the room. Used to have lunch there at least twice a week... More

I cannot count the years I have been eating here. Sorry to say since the death of Arti it appears this restaurant has entered a downward spiral. Ordering a salad you receive core, maybe a few leaves of edible lettuce. My daughter had spaghetti which has been a favorite of mine over the years. She received what looked like left... More

I've been eating here for years. The food has always been tasty and plentiful. Their side salads are great, with always cold, crispy lettuce. The menu hasn't changed much over the years, and is a familiar friend. Hamburger steak is always a good choice, and the fries are good. Very family-friendly, and comfortable.

Stepped back into a 1970's dining room atmosphere. Food was average in taste but portions were above average. Service was friendly and on time. Cashier spoke broken English. Not likely to return.

It has been here for years and I have eaten here for twenty plus years. One reason I go is for the price and a balanced meal. I could get a hamburger steak with a salad for $6.99, a hamburger boat (not balanced) for just $5.99. I have always overlooked the old carpet, torn chairs, and outdated everything. I have... More

I had lunch there... On a side note, this place is now called Steve's Steak House. I guess my first mistake was getting a crabcake sandwich from a "steak" house. There was hardly any crab in it - it was all filler. It was big though. baked potato was standard. Good prices too. It was $6.95 which is cheap nowadays.
