excellent restaurant We had the clams that were great for an appetizer. The rolls were hot and tasty and the steak melted in your mouth. Our server was wonderful. Will go again

Consistency is the key to this restaurant's success. I have never had a meal that I did not enjoy here! The menu offers a pleasant variety of dishes that are individually prepared and not prepackaged or frozen. If you are in the mood for a great steak, this is the place to go. But, if you are a pasta fan... More

Over priced for the quality of food that we were served. Service was minimal. Will not go back. I had heard from friends that it was one of the better restaurants in Malone but next time we visit we will stick with one of the local diners.

We would highly recomend this place, has been consistent each time we go, local friendly service, bread piping hot, salad with crumble blue cheese a must. We live in the capital district and this is the best filet we have had, it is a must!!

I come here fairly regularly. I have a few favorites on the menu but always listen to the features. Had a pork steak in panko bread crumbs with a cream sauce that was one of the features and it was delicious. Told the owner I would have it again if he put it on the regular menu.

A wonderful dinner. There were a wide variety of choices (we had blackened salmon and pork osso bucco). Both had great flavor and were perfectly cooked. Would definitely come back in a heartbeat.

Four of us enjoyed our 4 different dinners. Pasta dish delicious. Chix parm - delicious. Delmonico steak - delicious. Prime rib - good. Service was very good and price of wine reasonable. We went on a quiet night. Atmosphere nice. Look forward to our next visit!

My Wife and I Love the menu and the quiet atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The owner often stops to check on how our meals are. I also love the draft beer available.

The filet that I got was so juicy and flavorful. The buttered potatoes were so good. It's been such a long time since I have had a steak this good I must say thank you and I will remember this place again when I come back to visit. Keep up the amazing cooking I loved dinner so much.
