One of the best places to eat in Palmer...

I had the crab salad while hubby had the ribs and chicken. Every single thing was made to order and absolutely delicious. We'll be back soon. Kathleen and Jim

My wife, Raven, and I decided we would go on a "Date-Night," and we chose to go here. We had the Rib-Eye Steak and it was perfect. Service was delightful as was the wine.

Good food and generous portions. Fast, friendly service. It was very busy with the locals and visitors to the region. We chose it due to the number of people that were parked outside the restuarant.

A very good restaurant that is open for lunch and dinner. The food is fresh, servings sizes are adequate and the price is reasonable. I ate here twice in a two night stay.

Look around the building, a very lovely old place. They were very busy when we went, but only waited a few minutes for a table. Our food was tasty: salads and sandwiches, one soup. Loved, loved this place. Only complaint, the waiter and waitress were swamped, so service a bit slow. But, it wasn't their fault. Prices very reasonable.

First time there, had the basic burger. Fries were greasy and for some reason I sprang for the 2nd side of cole slaw, almost $4. 1/2 cup of heavily horseradished slaw. Fries tasted like they were cooked hours before and kept warm, heavily salted. Burger didn't look like it ever weighed 1/2 pound and there was an odd taste. Bun... More

Came for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We had a group of 5 and they had a table big enough for us. Got a burger, French dip, philly, Reuben and salad. Portions seemed a touch small at first, but then again we all walked out full. Prices aren't too bad and you get good food for what you pay. Great... More

I like eating in buildings with history and this one has one (you'll have to visit here to hear all about it!). They have a nice menu of sandwiches, burgers, and some other nicer plates. The food was good and fresh. My only complaint was it was a bit loud and hearing was difficult without talking louder. The service was... More

Our waiter was young and inattentive. My husband said his breakfast tasted funny and he did not feel well afterwards. Mine was alright.
