Food was great no complaints. Caesar salads are made from scratch table-side. Our server seemed to be looking after the whole restaurant because it took forever to get a coke refill, have our plates cleared and get a dessert menu. Unfortunately because the service slowed down toward the end we ran out of time to get dessert and had to... More

We have been here three times and have not been disappointed. The Wing night is fantastic and 1/2 price wine on Saturdays is great. You have to try the pork dry ribs they are fall off the bone and the best I have ever had. The smoked brisket sandwich is messy but well worth it. We will be heading back... More

My mom and I thought we would try this place on a Sunday morning for their $6 Bacon, Eggs, Toast and Hashbrown (real cubed potatoes) special. WOW, it was huge and sooo good. Very impressed with the food, prices, excellent service (all staff seemed really really happy) and the Manager even came by to see how our meal was. Now... More

We go for appies and drinks regularly. The food is pretty good and service is good most of the time. The manager is awesome. He's always on top of things and makes sure your visit is good. The music nights are an added bonus as it is nice to enjoy quality music for free. No cover charges, just wonderful music... More

We were given a menu at noon which encompassed mostly of breakfast items. There was one salad offered for the lunch hour and four other sandwiches. If breakfast didn't suit you and the choice for lunch, you were doomed as the other choices of fare did not come available until after 2:30. For a casino setting, found this to be... More

But the day manager is very abrupt, rude and wasn't wearing a name tag. The whole experience was great until I asked the manager if I could pay my bill. He told... More
