This place is authentic from the moment you walk in! The people are genuine and the food is delicious. We were there early to make a concert that evening but the longer we stayed, the more the place filled with "regulars". I say this because everyone was calling everyone else by name. This only enhanced the atmosphere for us.After the... More

Additionally, their wine list has a number of economical choices which compliment the menu. A few favorites include: Beer-Battered Fish Fry on Fridays; Crazy Chicken Caesar Salad; Beef on Weck and their... More

A few locals at a store told us to go to Koban's for dinner. I had a special, the Veal Parmesan. It was excellent!! I though it covered a mound of pasta, but there was another large piece of veal under the top piece of veal. The pasta and sauce were delicious. My friend had the side pasta, it was... More

Had a group of 10 for birthday dinner. Food was amazing, very small but family friendly dining. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and very generous portions. Would highly reccomend. Not close to tourist area, but not far from main areas of attractions.

We visit as often as possible. Food is always served efficiently and hot with pleasant and accommodating staff. We've tried almost everything on the menu. We never leave hungry, generous proportions from salads to entrees. Pierogi's are always on, but specials have various fillings and always delicious. Fish Fries are fresh and fries can be substituted with veggies and other... More

Wanting to get away from the crowds at the falls we stumbled on this place. Excellent food. Don't let the old building or its location keep you from enjoying an excellent meal. Friendly service. Great selection. Chicken Parmesan was wonderful! My wife enjoyed the roast pork. Family run place that really strives for excellence. So happy we found this gem.
