Good, if expensive, lunch at restaurant attached to basketball hall of fame. Good variety in menu and good beer selection. Food was delivered quickly and well prepared, if unspectacular.

Due to road construction getting here can be hard. The food is very good as are the portions. Prices tend to be on the high side. Outside of my mothers, Hilga`s meatloaf is the BEST.

My wife and I stopped there recently for lunch and were not disappointed. The menu offers something for everyone at a reasonable price. The food was tasty and delicious. It's a place we will return to soon.

Take it easy on the salt! I needed 3 cups of water to eat 1 appetizer! Otherwise, the outside seating is nice, and the wait staff is just lovely. Our waitress was Sarah, and she was so professional and lovely!
