My friend and I have eaten here before. The service is efficient, and the food is served hot. We both ordered Reuben sandwiches with French fries. The sandwiches were packed with lean, tender corned beef. Delicious.

The entrance for this restaurant is a little sketchy however, the inside is a great setting for casual dining. They seem family friendly and offer traditional American food with lots to choose from.

We were customers when we lived in Catonsville. Some things never seem to change. The same great service and food as when we ate here 15 years ago.
