They didn't have prime rib the night we were there so I had the suggested Ribeye. It was a good steak and the potatoes, soup and bread were all above average. My wife loved her salmon salad which was served with a whole grilled salmon...More

Ate lunch on a Sunday. On the pricier side but worth it. My husband had the chicken fried steak and it was great. The mashed potatoes that came with it were so smooth and well seasoned. I had the Ruben sandwich. The flavors were not...More

We stopped in here for lunch, because our first choice was closed. We had gone into the nearby grocery hoping they had some kind of deli snacks, but the place smelled of old grease and who knows what else, so we wandered down the street...More

Went to eat with a friend on Friday night. Every place we looked had a wait. We stopped at Brett's and it was about half full. What a great experience! Becky took care of us and was a super server. She suggested dishes that were...More

Had a first-rate dinner. Prices are on the high end but there are daily specials that are much more reasonable. The food is excellent. On the night we visited, they were short waitstaff and one woman was running from table to table. That took away...More
