The waitress was nice and patient. We took a little time looking at the menu. The salad was lacking. Almost all iceberg lettuce and the croutons were from a package. Bread and butter always good. After we ordered our food the service from the kitchen was very slow. The fries and chickened dark from either being over cooked or the... More

Too salty. Staff is nice, food is so over salted I was horrified. Completely inedible shrimp and steak. They also were weird about substitutions- like broccoli instead of rice/potatoes. Probably would not return

We enjoyed our diner: delicious sirloin, tasteful broccoli and perfect potatoes and fries. After a long day we really needed that. Great service too, got everything we needed.

Who wants to eat in a restaurant wherein the owner or general manager ("Josh") fling obscenities at patrons and staff? Not me, and not my family and friends. Think twice about eating here. How does a slob like this earn a restaurant?

after having not been there for many years we visited last Saturday, had planned on taking advantage to the "throwback" price deal but apparently this location wasn't offering that deal which we found out by asking our server about it, we did think about leaving but decided to stay, we were not impressed by the service or the food &...

First my beverage got delivered to the wrong table, after I asked where is my beverage the waitress went back grabbed the beverage off the wrong table and brought it to me, really. Then my wife's steak got cooked wrong two times she never tasted it, the manager only took part of the meal price off. Lousy dining. 38th street... More
