Rare that you find a meal you haven't had before like the light fried Lobster tails, very good too!
Service was friendly and quick
wasn't there for happy hour so it was quieter than it probably gets and not a busy, which was fine with us
I would go back :)

Nearly empty Sunday afternoon. Awesome menu, lots of options! Burgers & fries (all different selections) got rave reviews from our family. My disappointment came from Combo Fajitas which were bland lacking the right seasoning and really greasy—swimming in oil, peppers & onions too thickly sliced so not caramelized properly. I ate anyway not to be a killjoy but didn’t sit well with me afterward.

The place is very attractive inside and huge! The large sign almost made me not want to go inside though! It’s very sun bleached and weatherbeaten giving a rundown look to the place — totally inconsistent with the actual restaurant but they really need to replace the sign. Makes it look like a roadside dive given the proximity to lower priced hotels etc.

Everything we ordered was delicious! Best Pizza Crust I've had in years, and loved the Trenton Tomato Pie - Cheesecake was exceptional! Everything was very good! Diana Wright

Hostess was incredibly accommodating since my reservation went from 10 to 16. Had enough wait staff on hand to tackle our party (8 adults/8 kids) efficiently. All staff was smiling and courteous. Even hostess checked on us to make sure we were ok. Will definitely visit next time in area!!!!

Made a reservation for 6 at 7pm. At approximately 6:30 received a call from the restaurant asking if we could push our reservation to 7:30 since they did not have a table. We said ok. When we arrived at 7:15 the restaurant was almost empty and we were shown directly to our table. Not sure why they had to change our reservation. Food was just ok, waited almost 20 minutes for drinks, over 45 minutes for appetizer sampler which as described as huge, which it wasn’t really. Had 2 each of 4 items, which were just ok. Waited another 30 minutes for our dinners. Server was nice but slow to refill drinks and almost forgot one of our dinners. Pasta Bolognese was almost inedible- pasta clumped together and sauce was flavorless. Meatballs were good, cheesesteak and chicken sandwich were ok. We probably won’t be back

Did not have a good experience while dining at WL Goodfellows and Co. Inc., the waitress focused on my guest and completely ignored me. He became a little upset that she stopped by the table so much, because her attention was always on him. I requested the check and she placed it in front of my friend. I immediately grab the bill and handed her my credit card. Even though I paid the bill, she continued to give the check/bill to my friend. Not sure if I was invisible because of my gender or race. I did not leave a tip and the manager actually called me. And insisted on getting an answer as to why. I felt bullied and harassed.

"Slow paced" ~ the place was empty and still had to wait nearly 10 minutes to be seated. This was at 7:45 PM, on a Saturday night! We were seated at a hi-rise near the bar and the bartender wound up being our server. He was very friendly, but the service time was poor. We noticed this for tables around us too. From waiting on drinks, to food, to tab; have a suspicion that the kitchen contributes to this. The kitchen also messed up a dish preparation from the menu (no special order). The food is standard bar food, burgers and wings are good, but we've had better. The place has good ambiance, but needs to step it up, otherwise they'll just be a neighborhood last resort eatery for locals.

Good food, excellent strawberry colada to drink. Our server was nice and attentive, without being overbearing. Went back the next night too. Sat at the bar for more coladas, and appetizer.

The food was terrible. Service was abhorrent. We had to ask for a water a number of times, and could not get refills for the life of us. We had the nachos; the cheese was processed cheese. The sauce for the wings were clearly processed as well. The burgers were very below average. And when we complained, we merely got an "I'm sorry". Not one dish we had was close to finished, as almost everything was close to inedible.

Great food and great service in a nice comfortable atmosphere. Filet special at $19.99 was a great steak at a very good price. Service was friendly and courteous from the front door til we left. Great drinks and beer menu. Food is beyond expectations. A diamond on Rt 30

Unbelievable the size of the menu and variety on the menu which made us very skeptical upon ordering. We were pleasantly surprised that all our neals were delicious. Three of us in total. One had the jesery burger, one had a pizza, and one had the ahi tuna steak. All done wonderfully. The only con i would say were the Margaritas were weak in alcohol.

The food was okay. Everything that we ordered on the menu that needed a deep frier was over fried, and one of our orders was supposed to have angel hair pasta, which was forgotten when the waitress brought out our plate. I also got sick after eating.
