Live entertainment by the ""Trivia"" Guinness World Record holder on Wednesdays. How they landed such professional talent is beyond me. He, like myself, must love the down home, laid back atmosophere.
The food is great, too! Place is well-known for its peppercorn steaks. They're thick and delicious! Menu also includes a lot of noodle dishes, sandwiches, seafood, and salads. There's no pizza, no hot dogs, no nachos.
Food pricing is reasonable. They do a booming ""to-go"" business from the main hospital across the street.
Has a side room specifically for the nonsmokers. Has a small bar counter which houses the local every-dayers and the bartender's group. I wish the bar had a larger seating area.
Clientel is pretty diverse. You'd feel safe in this place. The waitresses are really keen on everything that's going on, and make interesting conversation.
Though the restaurant is family-friendly, meaning many folks bring their kids in with them to eat, but I'm not sure they have a kids' menu.
But for a cold beer in a safe, relaxed atmosphere, and some good food, fun, and fellowship: Basil's can't be beat! Also, it's not some chain. The owners are usually doing the cooking.
