Attentive service and a wide variety of drinks and menu items. Noise level was uncomfortable in the main dining area (window seat around from hostess stand) with mid 70's era rock. Not that I don't enjoy Ronnie Montrose but it was a mismatch for this lunch crowd.

Great food, lots of variety, and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. Service was great, thanks David! They even got us out of there on a busy Friday night in time for the concert. We'll be back.

Enjoyed the Chipotle BBQ burger, cooked perfectly to my liking. Very tasty. The menu offers a great selection of different items all at reasonable prices, and our server (Shirley) was very friendly and attentive. Restaurant was busy but not noisy, allowing for a casual business lunch conversation.

It was a night out with my Mom. I looked forward all week to having the lamb chops and they were out at 6pm Friday. The front desk greeters were very stressed and shown it. They were short wait staff, which I understand. Food was okay, I was missing part of my dinner but our waiter was new and trying his best so I didn't say anything. It took a half hour to get a drink.. I will try again sometime.

We went there after golfing in Clarkston . It was our 27th wedding anniversary and picked it as it had a huge variety of dinner options.Service was great, ambience was loud and the worse perch dinner I ever had. Vegetables undercook and perch was fishy and just not much to the filets. French fries were awesome… oh well you just never know!

I was pleased when the kitchen staff could fulfill a special request to modify the menu item “Mushroom & Swiss hamburger” by substituting the meat burger with a plant-based burger! Was quite delicious & all at my table enjoyed my French fries. Too our waitress was excellent.

Overall a really nice place to go for drinks and dinner. They cover all the bases with good burgers and sandwiches but offer finer cuts of choice steaks, seafood and specialty items. I had braised lamb shank which was outstanding! Service was excellent. I’ll be going back for sure.

I come here a lot and alway get the ROK, sirloin or ribeye, it’s fun and delicious and you can pick different sauces! (teriyaki with coconut rice 🔥) This most recent visit I got the fish and chips or fried cod? But the fish was a solid beer battery, fries were seasoned well, again all the sauces(ketchup, cocktail, and tartar), also I got a side salad instead of the coleslaw. Always busy for a reason.

We ordered sirloin tips as an appetizer. The dish arrived with small sirloin tips cooked as desired, covered in a gravy with red and yellow peppers and onions. It looked great! Sadly the dish was very bland, as though the steak was not seasoned at all.
Our table did not have any salt / pepper shakers so we were kinda stuck with bland food. Our waitress didn't come by for approx. 15 minutes... too late.

Good was great. Server was great, but they brought our soup and salads out only 2 minutes before main course. This should always be staggered.

Our reservation was for 1:00, luckily we showed at 12:30, when we checked in, we were told that brunch was stopping at 1:00 today. We only came for brunch so if we would’ve showed at our regular time, we wouldn’t have had brunch, we traveled about 40 mins to eat so it’s a bit disappointing that no one contacted the reservations letting them know of the stopping brunch at 1:00.

The young hostess was very friendly and polite. She sat us outside as soon as a Table was ready for us. Carlos our waiter did a good job. I ordered my steak medium and it came out almost well done, but it was still edible. The live music was good and the 5th street is one of my favorite places to eat.

Very good and somewhat unique food. Love the outdoor seats! A reservation is pretty necessary on Saturday night. They were telling people who walked in it would be a 30-40 minute wait.

I ordered the lamb chops and my wife got the swordfish. Both were extremely over-cooked and dry. The lamb was very salty. The zip sauce was saltier. The side dishes (mashed potatoes and vegetables) were cold. We also had to ask the bus boy for silverware when the appetizer was brought out (coconut shrimp - this was actually very good). And we didn't even realize we were supposed to get bread until it was brought to us toward the end of the meal. Other than that our sever was good. But over-cooked/dry and overly-salted proteins with cold side-dishes made us decide to not come back. We don't send food back and aren't "Karen's" who usually complain so we just let it go and paid our tab and still tipped 20% (I get places are short-handed and re-learning from Covid). The manager did come by to see how things were so we were honest with her and turned down a free desert since we did not want them to think we were just looking for freebies - just wanted them to know it was disappointing so they can get better. At least the coconut shrimp was delicious.
