OC Weekly's Description
You will be surrounded by teddy bears and floral-print wallpaper. The place is just as unapologetically square as your aunt. This is her type of restaurant, where most people come for early-bird dinners, and go home by 7. Their "Sizzling Steaks" hover around $11, tender enough for dentures and so good as not to require the A1 they'll offer you. Not into steaks? Their fried chicken and ribs are even better; crispy and fall-apart-tender, respectively.
Our dining experience started off with clam chowder, the soup of the day. It was reminiscent of the chowder at another familiar all-you-can-eat salad bar restaurant. Unfortunately, it was a bit undercooked. The celery was still crunchy and the sandy clams were a bit off-putting as well. The cream base was fair.

Our dining experience started off with clam chowder, the soup of the day. It was reminiscent of the chowder at another familiar all-you-can-eat salad bar restaurant. Unfortunately, it was a bit undercooked. The celery was still crunchy and the sandy clams were a bit off-putting as well. The cream base was fair. It could have used more herbs, like basil, thyme, and bay leaf, to punch it up a bit and perhaps some bacon for a little salty, smoky flavor. However, this is a plus for those who are watching their sodium intake.
Cajun Rib Eye Steak was deliciously seasoned, but a bit overdone for my liking. Since the dish is served on a metal hot plate, the steak continued cooking. Just as a note, you may want to order your steak a bit under your normal choice of doneness. The baked potato was cooked to a fluffy perfection, smothered with creamery-fresh butter goodness. The garlic bread was okay fare.
Flat Iron Steak is marinated and charbroiled to order. It was a hearty, flavorful cut of beef with a perfect char on it. The portion size was just right. The mashed potatoes and gravy were very smooth but needed help in the flavor department. A baked potato would be my first choice next time.
Tips from foursquare
Monday night special 1/2 off dinner price... super good deal!!!
Great place to bring the kids- you can see the river from inside.
