They have an extensive menu, including steaks. They also have a lunch buffet and specialty buffets at times. The front dining room is nice sized room so you don't feel crowded or cramped.

I wanted to wash up before eating here but there was no soap in the men's room. We left and went somewhere else that did. I wouldn't eat where they don't have soap.
