The steaks were great and the seafood was fresh. The service was good and the drinks were good. The house salad was beyond our expectations. Only reason I have a 4 is the sides were just average. Worth the trip.

We both thoroughly enjoyed our steaks, salad and fries at this unpretentious local restaurant. The service was friendly and professional and the wine reasonably priced. A good find.

It was a surprisingly good dinner! Not a fan of the interior of this restaurant ( too dark, a bit run down, the Chairs are dirty). Though, the food is good! Great sunflower bread with butter to go with fresh salads! My son had soup...More

Loved the atmosphere with the obvious John Wayne theme, but there were issues. The good: Cheerful wait staff but only two to run the entire dining room and bar. Wife loved the salad (good size, good variety of veggies). Steaks were tasty, but... The bad:...More

What a pleasant, relaxing, and friendly place to eat. Great food, reasonable prices, nice atmosphere. This is not a fancy steakhouse; very casual with a John Wayne inspired decor. We are snowbirds and were just passing through and saw the good reviews. (For a bonus,...More
