Baby Back Ribs

Awesome! Unfortunately, you are too close to my residence b/c I have been there 3 times in 1 week. Besides the ribs, i had your steak and turkey tips, boneless buffalo and chicken strips, ceasar salad. All are great! Your staff is very nice. We had Pat as our waiter twice. He informs us of things to consider on the menu. Nice touch. One thing of interest, i noticed the beef & broccolli meal is on the lunch menu but not on the dinner menu. Why?

Build Your Own BURGER

The guys I work with and I order from here at least once a week. It's been nothing but consistently high quality with great service. Burgers and fries are cooked and seasoned perfectly. They follow the instructions and are always incredibly friendly, can't recommend it enough.

Sirloin Steak (12oz)

The food was amazing, cooked to perfection and the band was great. We had just gotten out of a very close family member's wake and it turned a very sad day into a happy family bonding. Thank you for bringing smiles to our family member's face. (we were a group of almost 20)

Steak Tips

Four of us old friends met for a lunch get together. We were all girlfriends from elementary school and it's been a long time since some of us had seen each other. Three if us had the steak tips and one had the baked haddock each with salad and a side. Every dish was prepared to perfection. My medium steak tips were done perfectly, were super tender and absolutely yummy. I even brought two large pieces home for 'hubby'. Serving size was more than generous. The salad was excellent, lettuce nice and crispy. I had a baked potato with my meal. This was the first time i had been to this restaurant and it certainly won't be the last. The waitress was great. She gladly indulged us taking pictures for all of us. She was very efficient placing every portion of the meal in front of the correct person. We enjoyed her very much. Overall food and service rates a perfect 10 on my restaurant scale.

Fudge Brownies

To many items that are just great. Veal Parm, Chicken parm, lamb tips, calamari, etc; I have not had anything that I or my guest have been unsatisfied. There sauce is outstanding, only place I have found that it is rich in color, body and taste. Missed going last week, but will go today, as I have found it VERY consistent. Every other place I have been to, would be good for MAYBE two times, then not give a crap the rest of the time. When you say something to these guys at least they listen.

BBQ Chicken

It was too hot to cook for just the two of us, so we decided to try your restaurant. I got the steak tips. Husband got the bbq chicken breasts. Both came with large portion of mashed potatoes. I also got corn on the cob. HUGE portions! Had to be a pound of steak easily. Steak tips were so tender, melt in your mouth. Sauce they were marinated in was very flavorful. Brought half home for my daughter to try because i couldn't eat them all. He finished all his dinner, with no problem (man can eat). We got desserts too. He had strawberry cheesecake and i got strawberry shortcake. Yummy! Yes, we both ate all the desserts! Definitely coming back. I will try bbq chicken next time. Told daughters and will tell friends to check your place out! Stay cool!

Chicken Parm

The Sauce is exceptional and rivals the best Italian restaurants I have been at across the USA. The Chicken is cooked to perfection and the generous portion of Mozzarella cheese adds to the scrumptiolishness of the Chicken Parm. Then there is the al-dente penne and the dinner is complete and can only be described as "superlative".

Steak Tips

I started off with the caesar salad as my appetizer, the steak tips were to die for. The amount of steak I got was way more than what I expected. And my food came out in a reasonable time as well even for it being steak!! I had the purple rain drink (i think thats what it was called) it was super pretty and super delicious. The service I got was amazing.
