Good variety, home cooking. The steaks are good and would rival a good steakhouse at twice the price. It's where all the locals go. Not much in the area and this is one of the top places if you don't want fast food. Our server was awesome. Nothing fancy just good food!

I was in town taking care of other business, when I asked someone about a good place to eat; they directed me to Crystal's.
