We had a very nice meal. The roast beef was very good. My wife had the filet mignon and she enjoyed it very much. We also ordered ice cream sundaes for dessert and they were monsterous and delicious.

This is our favourite family go to. Daily specials. Home made desserts, from Almond Joy Cheese Cake, to fresh strawberry shortcake. Of course Beef On Weck, like no other!

Food was outstanding with overly generous portions. I had the French onion soup, and Beef on wick. My wife had the beef with cheese hot sandwich. Wait service was great, nice beer menu. Freshly made peach pie for dessert was wonderful.
