U & I Family Restaurant
Once you get seated at this family-style, full-service classic, settle in. The menu takes a while to get through. There are steak dinners for all appetites – from 6 oz. sirloins to huge, hearty ribeye, all charbroiled over an open mesquite flame and dishes featuring delicate grilled fish as well as generous seafood platters. There are Mexican entrees, Italian, good-ol’ Southern and even Souvlaki, shish-ka-bob and surf & turf for good measure. And every plate is dee-lish, belly-busting and rib-stickin’! Of course, there’s a full bar and a handsome wine and beer list to complement the feast. To top it all off, they feature scratch-made sauces and dressings and homemade bread – all crafted with love by the same Greek family that opened the place, serving up lunch and dinner since 1971. U & I Family Restaurant was named to honor that symbiotic relationship between customer and owner. And for over 45 years, U & I has been doing just that.
