Our bus trip called here , last minute, and they took care of us very quickly and with very good food. I can recommend the pork ribs. Everyone I spoke to enjoyed their dinner very much.

Love their breakfast. Omelettes are spot on. Very friendly waitstaff always ready with a coffee fii up. Prices are good and police always eat there, a good sign.

Ate here while on vacation and staying in hotel nearby. The interior is very nice. We sat in the bar area and we particularly liked the old style bar and the wood paneling. The food was very good. I would strongly recommend the bbq plate and my wife's sirloin tips were done perfectly. The only negative was that the service... More

The restaurant is slightly dated but charming. It's food is excellent. My son had pasta and I had steak, and we split our orders between plates. It was worth it. Only one minor thing-I ordered a peach bellini (kind of like a peach champagne), and it was served in the tiniest glass that you can get away with. Not worth... More

I am going to start this review off by saying it was the worst eating experience I have had. We decided to come here because our favorite, Beef and Bottle was booked for a last minute decision to eat steak that night. I have eyed this restaurant for some time, the parking lot is always full and thought it would... More

We ate dinner here one night when we were on a lay-over at a hotel near the airport in Charlotte. The portions are large and they specialize in beef. I got the prime rib. My husband got the French dip. Our kids got the kids’ steak and chicken fingers. The chef prepared the steak well-done even though we asked for... More

The atmosphere is a bit dated, but the food is wonderful. Service was slow, but waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Appetizer s, main course and dessert were great. Definitely, a return again experience.

Several problems with this place, and yes we have visited it in the past. Today's goofs were: Three people ordered sweet tea. Only one got sweet tea, the other two got regular. They told the waitress it was not sweet tea, and she said it was but would bring new tea back to the table (which btw took a longgggg... More

We visited on Saturday evening. The restaurant was not very crowded. While the service was good, it wasn't great, the food was good but not outstanding, one friend's baked potato was cold, one was perfect. I ordered Prime rib, it was good, but a little over cooked (I ordered medium) fried squash was bland, fries were hot but needed salt.... More

The special was blue cheese crusted lamb chops, which sounded yummy. A friend and I were both disappointed. The chops were unevenly cut, the cheese tasted processed, and the meat may have come from a sheep, not a lamb. Another friend sent back her scallops because they were excessivley salty. The replacements were no better. To their credit, the restaurant... More
