Not the best fried chicken as advertised. Very disappointed for the price and extra wait time. Pieces small. The chicken seemed to be cut up strangely. Vegetables excellent! I brought a family member from out of town and chicken did not live up to our expectations.

They are famous for their fresh fried chicken. They make it to order and it takes 20-30 minutes, so we order right when we sit down.

Very overpriced for basically home style/cafe food. Don't go for the food, go for the western/cafe atmosphere. It is a nice OLD TIME place and very friendly staff I have to say. Loud too, we could hardly carry on a conversation so it's not that good for a get-together where you want to talk, you have to shout. Your neighbor... More

They are famous for their pan fried chicken but not sure it's worth the price. I actually ordered (and enjoyed) the trout because it was less expensive than the $20 chicken platter for a Sunday lunch. Sure, you can get second helpings of the family style sides for free, but how much food can you actually eat in one sitting?... More

We visited here with friends on a weekday evening. Although the restaurant was very busy (usually is!), we were seated quickly. The menu is chock full of comfort food favorites, meat loaf, chicken fried chicken, and of course, their famous fried chicken dinner. I had the chicken fried chicken with mashed potatoes and veggies.

Went here on our last visit. I had Alaskan Cod; fish and chips. Then I switched the fries to sweet potato fries.....very good. My wife had a southwest style salad with chicken and goat cheese. Very good, too. We will return. Very good food and caring service.

Went to dinner here with a few friends. Enjoyed the western decor, well maintained and simple. The environment is open without being too loud or crowded, and the seating comfortable. Service was on point and responsive, friendly and engaging. They brought out fresh rolls (with that little bit of flour dusting still on top). They were delicious. Then we ordered... More

Known for it's fried chicken, unfortunately you can't get it during the week at lunch (they cook it fresh). The other meals are good, great salads and sandwiches, but can be a little pricey.

We were a party of 7 and came in at 6:15 on Sunday night. Didn't get seated until 7:00. We had five different orders and yes one of the orders was "Fried Chicken". So now it is 7:30 when we get our food. The ribs, walleye and trout where all tough/dry. Our college students were pleased with the chicken fried... More
