Our waitress...I don't remember her name but she was fantastic and the food was superb. We had the Shorty Platter and Nachos followed by steaks and different seafoodie things. We had a ton of food! I would definitely recommend this place.

If you like grilled and bbq-ed food , this is the spot to go if you are down town . nothing better than a steak diner with a cold beer. the prices are good for what you get .

Not so vegan friendly but to be expected. Sweet potato fries a very thin so not much potato but more fry. Veggie spring rolls were very deep fried and not much veggies. Chopped salad with raspberry dressing which was really refreshing, simple and delicious. Mediterranean...More

I stopped in for lunch. The French Onion soup was very good. Plenty of cheese and onions and not too salty or bland. I also had a side cobb salad with grilled chicken and blue cheese dressing. It was the perfect size for lunch. The...More
