What you see is not what you get....

Restaurant looks a little scary on the outside but inside it's cozy with wing chairs for seating. Service was a little slow but it was a Friday night. Salmon was caught that day, my husbands prime rib was rare just the way he likes it. Bread was homemade and they gave you ice cream for dessert... read more

We had driven past this restaurant and remarked that it didn't look like a winner. We were so wrong. It is locally owned and operated Bread, desserts and other dishes are family recipes. The dining room is nicely decorated and very welcoming. We each had a different fish dish and were each really pleased. The bread was definitely home made.... More

Got there quite late and the hostess/waitress was extreamly friendly and efficient. The food was excellent but quite spendy.

We like to find "off the beaten path" places when traveling and experience something new. This was just plain excellent! Service, atmosphere, food - we were quite thrilled with the whole experience. Large menu to choose from, too.

I would definitely eat here if you are going to be in the area for a couple of nights. The portions were huge and the price point very fair. They have an option where you can plus size (extra salad or soup and an extra baked potato) entrees for around 6 7 bucks and then split an entree. This is... More

The Roquefort dressing, fettuccini and prime rib were outstanding. The waiter was thoughtful and attentive to our needs.

The first impression was questionable but once we walked in the door all of the that disappeared. It was a warm and comfortable atmosphere with servicer friendly, helpful and courtesy. We ordered two meals, the Pasta with a side caesar salad and Blackened Salmon Caesar served with warm homemade bread. While I would love to give them an A because... More

Seafood bisque is a must! Prime rib good .I will go back. Outside looks plain and uninviting but once you step inside it will change your opinion. Check it out you won't be sorry.

Small and quaint. Family owned and service is a bit scattered but you can feel they care. Try the pan fried oysters and prime rib. Best we have had in years!
