Customers can choose from appetizers such as jumbo wings, quesadillas, potato skins and stuffed mushrooms with crab meat to hand-held items such as burgers, cheesesteaks, club sandwiches and wraps.

Hot specialty sandwiches and melts (all under $10), which come with fries, include barbecue pulled pork, cod and reuben melts and French dip and Monte Cristo sandwiches, among others.

Specialty platters (most under $15), which come with one side and salad, include steaks such as a 14-ounce Delmonico steak and 10-ounce queen-cut prime rib, pasta and stir-fry dishes such as chicken Francaise and shrimp stir-fry and platters such as crab cakes, chicken cordon bleu, meatloaf, open-faced roast turkey and veal parmesan.

Breakfast, served all day, includes creamed chipped beef, omelettes, pancakes, French toast, waffles, breakfast sandwiches and more.

The menu also includes homemade soups, desserts and kids selections ($5 each) such as chicken tenders with fries, mac and cheese and spaghetti and meatballs.
