This was my first visit and I must say it won’t be the last. That attention from the staff was like no other. I booked a reservation short notice and was able to be accommodated.
Just an overall Great experience.

The food was excellent. Second time there and it does not disappoint. Service was a little slow, but that’s to be expected since every place is short-staffed. The server was friendly and helpful and was working extremely hard. We’ll be back, for sure!!

The waitress did not do a good job at all, took our drinks order (I ordered a beer), she comes back 10 min later to tell me they don't have that beer, and so I order another one. She comes back 5 min later & tells me that they don't have that either. So why even put that on the menu or why don't you know which ones you are out of (if it was really just the 2 I happened to order)? She was not at all helpful, didn't ask if she could get me something else. The food was so-so, ordered the gyro which was a bad idea. The club sandwich & wings were fairly good, and the chicken dinner plate was good portion sizes. We sat out in the patio, which was very nice to enjoy the evening. Fair prices, but don't plan on going back there again anytime soon.

Very mediocre at best.

Ordered potato skins as an app and French dip sandwich and patti melt sandwich as entrees .

Potato skins were served, three looked ok one was burnt. The problem was we had no time to enjoy them as by the time the small plates arrived to eat them our entrees were out. This is poor communication with wait staff and kitchen. There is no point in ordering an app if the entree is served right on top of it.

The meat on my French dip was cold. Seems like it should have been placed under heat to heat the meat and toast the bun as both were cold. It is odd that there was no cheese in the French dip as well. Fries were at best warm. The only thing hot was the au jus.

Pattie melt was not cooked properly and the bread was not toasted on both sides.

It was our first time here since it changed names, and I probably will wait until it changed names again.

Very disappointed.

I think our server wasn’t a huge fan of his job. Nice enough guy, just not informative. The appetizer sampler platter was really sad, and they were out of some of the stuff so it looked more like leftovers from someone else’s platter. 🤣.

We reserved a high top but were seated at a booth.

Overall, nice staff and decent food. Love the decor.

The perch was, simply, dreadful. Two filets that had no taste, ands seemed more fried than anything else. The skin was left on so it made it kind of crunch on one side, but not in a good way. The nachos were pathetic. The wife ordered the salmon salad and the salmon was served raw in the middle, which just happened to align with the way she likes her fish. In other words, Ahi style. If you're not into raw fish on your salad, then it was terrible and you'd have to send them back to actually cook the fish.

I think if you're a middle aged to senior white republican, you will like this place. The food is ok, but it is very expensive. $14 for six sad shrimp flat on a plate with a leaf of lettuce underneath. The special gin and tonic was absolutely well liquor, watered down, very expensive. The food is just nothing special, almost mass produced tasting, and it's just wood inside from the previous version of the restaurant. I have to say I do not get the appeal of this place, especially because there is zero diversity unless you count one asian waitress. Lots of white 60-80 yr olds (I'm a white 52 yr old so no shade, just the truth), tons of sports on tv, exorbitant prices. I'll pass next time.

Had high expectations for this place since they on the south hill locations for many years and the food was always good there. Unfortunately the same is not true for this location even though the owner is the same the portions are smaller than the average in the prices are just a tad above average overall just disappointed with the quality of the food it almost seems like it’s just frozen items being served warm.
